    I just wanted to let other travelers know that flights from Quito to Cuzco via Lima are extremely expensive. You can get a cheaper fare by flying from Quito to Lima and then onwards to Cuzco. LAN airlines, TACA and TAME airlines are the major airlines offering flights from Quito to Lima; while STAR PERU and PERUVIAN airlines operate flights to Cusco.

    Unfortunately, when it comes to flying you have to do it via Lima. What the original poster suggested is a good way to get a cheaper fare. Generally speaking you get the best deal through LAN or Avianca. Most direct flights from Quito To Cuzco will cost around $500. I have a done a quick search and flying from Quito to Lima via Tame flight is around $160 plus $100 for Star or Peruvian, which will make the whole trip around $260 (almost a saving of $250!)

    It's a pity that this route (Quito-Cuzco) can't really be done by bus. There are buses servicing this route but you will spend so long on the bus (about a day) that is almost pointless bussing it. As far as airlines, I was going to suggest the All America Airpassia (Lima - Cusco - Lima - Quito) for $470 + tax, but unfortunetly they discontinued offering the All America Airpass as per January 31st 2012.
