As you may have already heard, we are experiencing major rainstorms, flooding and landslides in the Andes of Peru. As a result, train services to Machu Picchu have been interrupted with many clients stranded both there and in Cusco without having the possibility of visiting the site.
While we are in the midst of rainy season, these extreme weather conditions are quite unusual. This has happened only a handful of instancesÂ during the past 10 years, and it normally subsides after a few days.
Fortunately no Aracari clients are in Machu Picchu at the moment. ForÂ those whose travel is underway and who are in Lima or Cusco, we are making the maximum efforts to rearrange their travel plans so they manage to visit the
site when train services resume in hopefully the next few days.
For those of you who are travelling or have clients starting their trips next week, there is no need to worry as things will most certainly beÂ back to normal. The rains have since stopped, the water levels are dropping and Cuzco is currently sunny.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any further questions.
