Machu Picchu: The Souvenir Pricing Guide

After arriving on Perurail, you might be eager to get to the top. Because of the crowds, I decided to take some time and buy some souvenirs. The shops all offer the same things, but there are great keepsakes to remind you of the moment. Personally, I found the alpaca memorabilia to be hysterical.

Here is what I bought and what I paid. I had to bargain hard to get them which is my favorite pastime.

  • Souvenirs
    • Alpaca T-Shirt: 15 soles ($4.55). This is $2 higher than the normal cost of a shirt overseas but I had to have it.
    • Alpaca Hat: 10 soles or ($3)
    • Alpaca Sweater (featured in later post): Priceless or 30 soles ($9)a store with many bags and hats a table with colorful objects and objects a man standing on a ledge with stone buildings in the background


  1. Sorry to be the Debbie downer here but…. You clearly bought fakes…. might as well say China on it. The real alpaca items are cheaper than the 100+ USA prices but you ended up with fakes. Sorry to burst the bubble here….. the real stuff costs anywhere from 30-100… baby alpaca is softener and therefore commands higher prices.
