Lima, Peru's capital, is located 300 miles (483 kilometers) to the west of Choquequirao, while Cusco - Machu Picchu is 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast.
Of course, visiting just one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a limited view into the wider textures and qualities of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to savour Cusco 's other attractions. You'll find Santa Teresa, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest, and Machu Picchu 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest.
Around 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the east of Choquequirao is Cusco, a regional center where you can explore Tambomachay, Cusco Museum of Popular Art and UNSAAC Yale International Center. Cusco has much of interest for those keen to hang around a little longer. Cusco Craft Center, Garcilaso de la Vega Stadium and Pukapukara are just a sample of the other interesting places worth a visit.
An excellent way to really get to know an area is by getting an understanding of its past. While in Cusco, take the time to tour the area's historic ruins. If you're on the lookout for activities that won't break the bank, set aside some time to explore Cusco 's many outdoor cultural attractions such as farms, open-air museums and open-air markets.
For those who like to pick up knowledge as well as souvenirs while on vacation, this region features plenty of specialized tours, including wildlife spotting tours, guided nature walks and culinary tours. See Cusco in a completely new way. Take to the skies and have a go at paragliding.
At the end of your holiday in Choquequirao, use the last of your soles on last-minute souvenirs and bid a fond Adiós (farewell).
