Will I need cash during the tour inca jungle to machu picchu?

When receiving local currency, always ask for billetes pequeños (small bills), as S100 bills is hard to change in small towns or for small purchases. Carry as much spare change as possible, especially in small towns.

Also, public bathrooms often charge a small fee for use, and getting change for paper can be darn near impossible. Certainly, the best places to exchange money are normally casa de Cambio (foreign exchange bureaus), which are fast, have longer hours, and often give slightly better rates than banks.

Many places accept US dollars. Do not accept torn money as it will likely not be accepted by Peruvians. So, it is best not to change money on the street as counterfeits are a problem.

Weather

What is the weather in Cusco – inca jungle to machu picchu?

Certainly, Peru has three main climatic zones: the tropical Amazon jungle to the east, the arid coastal desert to the west, and the Andean mountains and highlands in between.

Therefore, in the Andes, which have altitudes over 3500m. Average daily temperatures are around 10°C (50°F), and overnight temperatures can dip well below freezing. So, travelers flying straight to Cuzco (3250m), or their hight altitude cities, should allow several days to acclimatize since altitude sickness or soroche can be a problem.

As a result, April to November is the dry season in the mountain and Andean Plateau (altiplano). The wettest months are from December to March. It rains al the time in the hot and humid rainforest, but the driest months there are from April from November.
