Hi,188.8.131.52. "Cuzco" is *no* mistake, just a different spelling. Both are usual.
Where not to stay?
I wonder how appropriate it would be to put down where not to stay. When I was in Cuzco, we booked a room at one place, but they played a shell game with us and put us up at the 'Eurohostal'; a cheaper place owned by the same guy. Of course, we were charged the higher rate. When we complained to the tourist police, the police said that the owner of those places had a history of pulling crap like that. --Bletch 20:36, 2 Mar 2005 (EST)
Also, just wanted to mention that this is a great looking guide! Nice work contributors! Majnoona 18:57, 3 Apr 2005 (EDT)
"Cuzco" is how Cusco is often spelled on American and European maps, but the local spelling and the spelling throughout Peru is "Cusco". "Cusco" is the official spelling used by all government offices.
The Cuzco article has improved a lot and this certainly should be acknowledged. I think, however, that some things are still missing to make it a real guide, especially concerning the Manual fo Style:
Hence, I'm changing the status back to usable, and I'm also proposing Cuzco as Collaboration of the Week, because I think it has great potential to become destination of the month soon if we get more people to work on it. Ricardo (Rmx) 18:57, 26 April 2006 (EDT)
I was going to put one of the pictures of Cuzco as a 400px wide framed image although I can't seem to get the right code in
I was using [[Image:Plaza de Armas.jpg|right|frame|400px|description]] and for some reason it wouldnt do it at the size I had specified, it just blows up into the whole screen!! What am I doing wrong?! Tsandell 12:59, 25 May 2006 (EDT)
This tourist pass is required for entrance to alot of attractions here and in other local places. I have put a sidebar for the info here and on these other pages, as this stops browsers having to come to Cuzco#See for information, which is what they currently have to do... I don't know what our policy is on sidebars - they were mentioned a while back but I haven't seen any since. Tsandell 13:29, 25 May 2006 (EDT)
Is anyone going to Cusco soon that would be able to get some addresses and phone numbers for the bars and hostels? This article has great potential.
I also edited the Understand section a bit, as it was a bit negative. I studied history there for a while, but if there is anyone that knows more about the history I think it would be a good addition. --Shiitaco 04:02, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
Removed conflicting opinions on giving to beggars and replaced with a simple description of street beggars in Cuzco, and a link to the Begging article, which discusses pros and cons of giving hand-outs. If this approach is not acceptable, please revert.

Get out section
I was going to put up photos of the three of the four archaeological sites at the beginning of this section. However I noted the declaration at the beginning of the section that it does not conform to the Manual of Style. I don't understand why. I looked at Wikitravel:Where you can stick it as well and the places would seem to be correctly placed here. I think it is important because these and other sites could have considerable appeal to visitors to Cuzco. Could somebody please explain what needs changing?
Tours and guides
I have moved the following listing here per our policies on tours and guides.
This listing needs some consensus that it is in the best interests of the traveller to have this service listed here and that it represents an activity/activities that a visitor is unlikely to be able to do on their own, or would not otherwise have access to unless he used this tour service. -- felix 14:22, 29 January 2012 (EST)
