Cell Phone Coverage for Inca Trail Trip

Hi,

Just wondering if there is cellphone coverage in Lima, Cusco and possibly on the Inca Trail?

Thanks

I know there is coverage in Lima and Cuzco but not having had a phone don't know how good it is. On the Inca Trail, our guide was on his phone at lunch on day 3 and a few times after that. I don't think there was much coverage until we got within site of Machu Pichu.

I think the guides have satellite phones, though, not regular phones. I went in May and it was fabulous, worth every aching muscle!

Hi, there wasn't much coverage for mobiles throughout the majority of the inca trail, there were no problems in Cuzco before we set off though. Its an amazing place you will love it :D
