Dormimos diversas noites aqui e também deixamos a van sozinha por quase 10 dias. Passávamos para ver se estava tudo bem e nunca tivemos problema algum. É uma rua onde ficam as vans e ônibus de turismo. Tem alguns minimercados e lavanderias, hotéis e tbm restaurantes próximos.

We slept several nights here and also left the van alone for almost 10 days. We went to see if everything was ok and we never had any problems. It is a street where the vans and tourist buses are located. There are some mini-markets and laundries, hotels and also restaurants nearby.

Spent many nights here, we felt safe, left the vehicle to walk in the center many times. No facilities. Nearby there are bathrooms 1 sol and showers 5 soles. You're in front of business and houses, do not put your chair outside or let trash around, make good use for the others continue using it.

Dormimos várias noites por aqui, foi bem tranquilo, nos sentimos seguros, deixamos o veículo aqui e fomos a pé ao centro várias vezes. Não tem estrutura, mais abaixo na rua tem sanitário 1 sol e chuveiro 5 soles. Você fica a frente de casas e negócios, não coloque cadeiras para fora nem deixe lixo, cuide para que outros continuem usando.

Spent here 3 nights, perfect place to park and explore the city as the center is 10min walk away. Duchas (5s)and bañjos(1s) are 5min walk away. Pretty quiet at night. Many overlanders stay here :)

Really nice spot to stay in Cusco ! We spent around 10 days there. Close to historic center, restaurants and shops. Really safe neighborhood, security cameras of the various hostels. We felt that safe we even let our RV there 2 days while going to Machu Picchu and 3 other days while going to Manu.

Dormimos 2 noches en este parking gratuito. Es bastante seguro porque siempre hay gente, está al lado de hoteles; dejamos varias veces el vehículo sólo sin problema. Eso si no es muy tranquilo porque vienen buses a aparcar, calle está empinada y hay bastante paso de vehículos. Pero en esta gran ciudad, es lo mejor que hemos encontrado, además al lado de plaza de armas!

This is where some tourist buses park overnight. Popular spot for overlanders as well since it’s proximity to the historic center. Free and save

Very good location! No facilities, but plenty of space to park. Quite at night. We stayed for 5 nights or more and didn’t have any problems. Felt very safe. Is pretty close to Selina, where you can order a coffee, work and use their restrooms.

o local é onde ficam estacionados ônibus e vans de turismo. no local tem um posto combustível (grifo) desativado. local tranquilo após as 22h até às 7h pq é uma via de trânsito movimentada. Não tem estrutura nenhuma de apoio. a localização é mto boa bem próxima a plaza de armas e centro histórico. tem mercados bem próximos.

Took a break here when we first arrived in Cusco. Didn’t see any cameras nor police. Decided to find a paid parking for security while walking the city. Probably would be ok for overnight.

very nice place in Cusco. always other overlanders and pretty quiet at night. during day there is an open toilet for 50centos. need to level your car in some spots.

We stayed 4 nights totally, maybe not so beautiful place but ok to be very close to the center. Safe during day and night, other overlanders here as well.

We parked here during the morning to walk around the historic center, it felt safe but we didn't like it to camp!

Report Check-In

Didn’t like it at all. Terrible place colliding with a very popular road. No cameras that I can see, neither other overlanders. Wouldn’t recommend it at all

Probably the best spot in Cuzco. Large dust parking with a lot of overlanders and touristic vehicles, you have (expensive) gas station with bathrooms and water, police patrolling (they were parked next to our vehicle during 1 night and 1 day), quiet enough to spend good nights. 1km walk from the Plaza de Armas. Very recommended

This is a perfect place to stay for any Overlander vehicle! It’s for free and there is enough space even for big rigs. You can meet lots of other overlanders here, too. It’s only a five minute foot walk from the center. Another big advantage: when coming from the direction of Pisac, you don’t need to drive into the city center and its traffic.

great place to stay. Quite and safe. There is a woman that rent baño and 20 lt of water in the same block.

Lugar indicado para campers. Tranquilo y seguro. Hay una señora que alquila baño y vende 20 litros de agua por si necesitan.

Realy this street is very security and near historic down town. There is a gas station PECSA permit to park and stay for 24hrs. Fee $20 solis for 24hrs. May fill water tanks. Near supermarket, money exchange, restaurants and turística agencies.

BIG RIGS: Maps.me took us down some narrow roads to get here so maybe try and stick to the main roads through town for wider/longer vehicles.

We levelled our truck with a couple rocks and had a very quiet and comfy sleep plus felt super safe. 3 other overlanders here and one of them has been here for two months. Close to street food and restaurants....menu del día for 6 soles if you walk towards the centre then turn left on the second block, it's on the right hand side towards the end of the street(not sure of the name).
