Machu Picchu Restrictions

MACHU PICCHU

Following UNESCO recommendations, authorities have declared that starting 20 July 2011 the maximum daily capacity of visitors to Machu Picchu will be 2500. Due to the MP´s anniversary celebrations and local festivities in Peru, these past days the max. capacity was reached and some travelers were not able to visit the Citadel.

Please note the following :

  • We buy the tickets in advance, but we consider that travelers which overnight in Machu Picchu/Aguas Calientes and expect to buy locally the entrance ticket for their 2nd day visit could experience problems. There will be days were no tickets will be available.
  • To avoid this we suggest :
    • Send us the travelers details mentioned below in advance. The earlier the better.
    • Request the entrance tickets for the 2nd day visit as part of the program
  • Regarding the entrance tickets it´s important to know:
    • To be able to buy the tickets we need :  Full Name  +  Nationality  +  Age  +  Gender (Male/Female)
    • The reservations stay valid for 6 hours. If not bought the system releases them automatically.
    • Once issued/bought, the tickets can be modified (date and names) but paying a penalty of up to 30%
