The historic citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the most visited tourist places in the whole country and the world, so It is necessary that you book your visit in advance.
The economic and tourist reactivation has reached a peak in Cusco, which has caused the entrance tickets to run out quickly due to the limited number of these tickets, which caused the discomfort of visitors and tour guides.
Through a statement, the Decentralized Directorate of Culture of Cusco confirmed that the entrance tickets to the ancient Inca city of Machu Pichu are sold out until August 18. In addition, the ticket office of the Cultural Center of Machu Pichu does not open from August 11 until further notice.
For this same reason, representatives of the tourism sector showed their disagreement with Ministerial Resolution 173-2020, which establishes the limited capacity of the different tourist areas during the pandemic, since currently the Inca citadel can only receive 2,244 tourists per day.
