Cusco was our first stop on the trip, so even though there was SOOOO much I wanted to buy, I figured I should save a little money & room in my luggage for our stops in Arequipa and Lima. Well, I think I’d recommend doing most of your souvenir shopping in Cusco after all. Especially if you’re looking for some cool Inca-inspired or indigenous Andean artifacts.
That being said, here are my top 5 souvenirs from Cusco:
- My 20-lb antique iron
- A tapestry featuring various animals (similar to some of the ones hanging above)
- A toy alpaca, complete with real baby alpaca fur
- Alpaca hat & gloves (and leg warmers) – I LOVE these
- My llama duffel bag
