Transportation wasn’t expensive as well, considering there were two long distance bus rides. The tourist bus between Cusco to Puno on Wonder Peru was the more expensive one at 36 USD while the bus between Puno and La Paz cost only 30 Peruvian Soles (PEN). We also had return trips from Cusco to Ollantaytambo on collectivos for 10 PEN per person each way. There were also some taxi rides in Cusco which was usually around 3 to 5 PEN.
