The area can get quite crowded from December through February. Another top destination to see in South America is the area of Cusco in Peru. Within the city of Cusco you can visit the Saqsaywaman and Qorikancha Incan ruins. If you make your way into the mountains surrounding it, there’s the Sacred Valley as well as the Machu Picchu Incan citadel high above sea level.
