There are a limited number of tickets to Machu Picchu per day; so it is advisable to get the tickets prior to arriving in Peru.
First, you will go to http://www.machupicchu.gob.pe or Machu Picchu Tickets Click Here
- On the right hand side, you will select the language. You will select Machu Picchu (follow the pink arrows)
- Then you have to decide if you want to visit in the morning or in the afternoon. The yellow arrow is the morning 6 AM-12:00PM; once you are in, you can stay beyond 12:00 PM but will be unable to re-enter after this time. If you select the blue, that is the afternoon time slot starting at 12:00PM -6PM. You will not be able to enter early unless Machu Picchu’s entrance is closing around 2 PM, then you can spend the entire day.
- To go to the next page, you will select Step 2. (bottom middle of the page)
At the top you will notice the availability remaining on the particular day you are looking at and you will be asked to select the number of tickets. For this, you will need to know passport numbers, age, and full names. This is in case you forget your tickets; they can look it up.
When finished click Step 3.
On this page you will put contact name information, passport information, and your email address. You will confirm the number of visitors and the total amount (remember, this is in soles which is 3.14 soles=1USD) around 65.00 USD/person/day.
You have to click the two boxes verifying that the information is correct and you agree to the conditions. Click Book.
A reservation code will pop up. You will need to click on the payments tab (see left blue arrow) and you will pay here after entering your reservation code (this is NOT your ticket). When you are finished, you will take the reservation code and go to the check in tab in order to print your tickets (right blue arrow).
