Cusco Chinchero Airport Car Rental Mini Guide
Serving the south of Peru, Cusco’s current airport (Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport) is due to be replaced by the new facility under construction, Chinchero Airport, which is scheduled to open in 2025. Until the switch occurs, you can still rent cars in Cusco, either from the airport (CUZ), Lima Airport
or any of our downtown locations.
As soon as the new airport facility is online and receiving flights, routes and airlines will divert services to Chinchero Airport where car rental facilities will be immediately available.
Main Routes & Distances:
Cusco City: The airport is approximately 30 km from the city center of Cusco. You can take the route via Chinchero-Urubamba and then continue onto Av. de la Cultura to reach Cusco City. The drive should typically take around 45 minutes to an hour, depending on traffic conditions.
Sacred Valley (Urubamba): The airport's proximity to the Sacred Valley is one of its advantages. It's roughly 20 km to Urubamba, traveling via the Chinchero-Urubamba road. The drive should take about 30 minutes.
Ollantaytambo: This town, which serves as a gateway to Machu Picchu via train, is approximately 50 km from the airport. After reaching Urubamba, continue on the same Chinchero-Urubamba road towards Ollantaytambo. The total journey might take about an hour.
Pisac: Located about 45 km from the airport, you can reach Pisac by driving to Cusco City first and then taking the Cusco-Pisac highway. The trip should take roughly 1 to 1.5 hours.
Driving Conditions: While main roads are generally in good condition, some sections might be narrow and winding, especially those that traverse the mountainous terrain of the region.
Altitude: The entire Cusco region is at a high altitude, so it's essential to give yourself time to acclimatize before undertaking any strenuous activities, including long drives.
Navigation: Ensure you have a reliable GPS or navigation app, as some remote areas might not have clear signage.
Local Knowledge: Consult at the car rental agency desk about the current road conditions, especially if you're venturing off the main routes.
Insurance: Ensure your rental vehicle has comprehensive insurance coverage due to potential road hazards and conditions.
Please note that specifics about routes and infrastructure might change as the airport construction progresses and new roads or facilities are developed. Always check for the most recent information closer to your travel date. Safe travels!
