My plane lands in Cusco at 6:00am. The available trains to Machu Picchu on Peru Rail leave at 640a, 735a, and 825a from Poroy. I would like to get to Machu Picchu as quickly as possible.
Here are my questions:
- How long does it normally take to get from the airport to the train station?
- What happens if I book a 735a ticket and miss the train? Can I pay the difference and get on the 825a train?
- Should I buy a ticket now or wait to buy the ticket when I get to the train station and avoid worrying about which train to take?
- What are the chances that I could get on the 735a train if I buy a ticket for the 825a train but arrive at the train station early?
I'll be landing on November 26th so it won't be the high tourist season.
