Inca Trail - To reserve or not to reserve??

Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Inca Trail - To reserve or not to reserve??

I am planning in being in Peru in March this year and would like to hike the Inca trail. I don't need a lot of pampering and would like to get the best price. Is it really necessary in March that I reserve a space ahead of time or would I be safe to just look into it when i get to Cusco and wait the couple days if necessary??

There might be up to 2 other people travelling with me too.

Hi Sparlita

I think that in March will be not problem, but you can monitoring the avaibility here it is in spanish, click in "sistema de reserve rci" in the left and then click on a arrow and choose " disponibilidade diaria" after that choose the month and you will see all avaibility per day.

I was there in july/august 2005. If you decide to make the reservation then you need to find authorized agent. I make the reservation with Marisol, she is nice and has a good price, her e-mail is

good trip the place is unforgetable.
