The last time there was a deal this good to Lima was the $270 LAN fare from DC/JFK in November 2009. The Flight Deal team took advantage of that deal and hiked Machu Picchu.
Fly into Lima, explore the city, have some great ceviche and definitely have a meal at Astrid y Gaston (one of the top 50 restaurants in the world).
After exploring the city, buy a plane ticket on either Star Peru or TACA (they are the two cheaper airlines to Cuzco from Lima) and use that as a base to Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is truly worth seeing.
This is a mistake fare. We will be updating throughout the day tomorrow as more details are available.
