Free Admission to Machu Picchu? Here are the Facts

As we enter week 9 of Peru’s state of emergency, there finally does appear to be some end in sight.  The most recent quarantine extension will last through May 24th and it is expected to be lifted this time in a phased approach. 

While there has not been any communication about what the phased approach will look like, President Vizcarra did pass a legislative decree on May 11th stating that entrance to Machu Picchu and 54 other national parks and landmarks will be open to the public again beginning July 1, 2020.   The decree also stated that from July 1 to December 31, 2020, there will be free admission to all of those sites for children (under 18), senior citizens (over 60), and any public servants.  The free admission applies to both Peruvians and foreigners.

If you’re able to get down to Peru this year or the quarantine has forced you to stay here until after July 1st, this would be a great opportunity for you and your family to take advantage of the free admission.  Here is a list of all the sites included:
