Explanations about Ministerial Resolutions

This document explains the changes produced.

The Citadel of Machu Picchu is a heritage belonging to the Peruvian Government and humanity. So Peruvian Government manages the site, Access, restrictions and rules, rates and possible discounts applies. These fees and discounts are reflected on this website, that is why we only offer what the Peruvian Government offers.

In the past and until now, the Government, through resolutions, has applied different rates. Our agency has always reflected those changes on our pages and will continue to do it. To sum up, we only offer the rates and discounts offered by the Government, nothing more nothing less. If there were new resolutions, we would reflect the changes immediately (usually in less than 24 hours).
