About Machu Picchu Cusco Birding

Are you ready for a great adventure?

Machu Picchu Cusco Birding was born with the aim of making birdwatching in Peru a more affordable birdwatching in Peru for everyone, with an intelligent strategy to reduce costs without sacrificing quality of service. Machupicchu Cusco Birding is the nature line of Peru Unique Destination, a tourism agency with more than 10 years in the market and being this one of the few operating agencies located in the same city of Cusco is one of the best options for the southern destination of the country.
Peru is a sum of geographical blessings that make it unique for birdwatching. Its proximity to the equator line, its ocean currents and its gradients from 0 to more than 6000 masl make it a megadiverse country.

Likewise, its extensive history of more than 5000 thousand years with enigmatic cultures that have astonished the world and the sum of different migrations such as Spanish, African, China, among others, have further enriched the Peruvian culture.
Likewise, the many years of experience as the best tourist destination in South America has raised its quality of service to a benchmark level for other countries. The availability of hotels from 3 to 5 stars, their varied restaurants, the modernity of the vehicles, the good condition of their roads and of course the extraordinary level of the guides added to the perception of safety has exceeded the expectations of many travelers definitely doing Peru the best destination for birdwatching and traditional tourism.
Specifically, for bird lovers, the southern region of Peru is the most recommended when it comes to quantity and variety of species. Here we talk about more than 1300 species of birds of the almost 1900 that are throughout the country.

Just talking about Cusco is considering the Abra Malaga and its more than 10 endemic birds, Machu Picchu also with its endemic birds and bamboo specialists such as the Inca Wren or the colorful Cock of the Rocks without mentioning the feeling of being in front of an archaeological City of the Incas. Nestled in the middle of the cloud forest or the Manu Road which is the favorite destination for many nature or bird lovers, among many other Hot Spots present in Cusco.
To the above, we must add the perfect connectivity with the regions of Arequipa and the Colca Canyon or Puno where the Titicaca Grebe is found in the lake of the same name and of course Madre de Dios and its protected areas of Tambopata and Manu.

However, it cannot be denied that, in Peru, birdwatching tourism has been «elitized» for many years. The design of programs with 5-star or luxury hotels, the contract of non local guides where their air tickets and hotels are added to the cost of the final package and sometimes unnecessarily extensive programs have prevented many young people from getting involved in this exciting activity. Today, what humanity needs is more naturalists to make this a better world. That´s why Machu Picchu Cusco Birding works in smart way to make the birding programs more affordable for every budget.
