Via the BBC,  Machu Picchu tourist airlift ends with 1,300 flown out:

A total of nearly 4,000 tourists and local residents have now left the area following last Sunday’s heavy flooding.

The Machu Picchu site, which attracts more than 400,000 visitors a year, will be closed for several weeks.

Officials say it will take months to repair the railway that leads to the World Heritage Site high in the mountains.

Pretty much any vacation the includes the word “airlift” is, by definition, not a good one.
