This section is a complement to Exploring Cusco, and all the references to “See www.peterfrost.org” in the book can be found in the links below. You’ll also find lots of additional recommendations and information here that, for whatever reason, didn’t make it into print, plus updates to information in the book. Not everything from Exploring Cusco has been presented here, and there are plenty of interesting and out-of-the-way places that you’ll need to read the book to find out about.
