Macchu picchu entrance tickets

Hi,

We’re headed to Cusco next week and was wondering if we could just purchase our Macchu picchu tickets there? I have read we needed to purchase but also read you can purchase the day before you go to MP in Cusco. Don’t want to not buy a ticket in advance if it’s all sold out. Also, where can i buy it on the internet if needed.

Thanks in advance!

This is the official government site for buying tickets.

www.machupicchu.gob.pe/

There are lots of agents online that can buy the tickets for you if you have trouble with the site. It doesn't work for everyone. You can also ask your hotel to buy them. This time of year basic MP entrance tickets probably won't sell out as it's not high season. My guess is you could get them a day ahead if you want. I'm not sure where the ticket office is if you wanted to buy in person. The price is the same so if your date is fixed, not sure why you wouldn't buy them in advance to save an extra trip to buy tickets.

According to Rough Guide Peru, tickets can be purchased at the INC in Machu Picchu Pueblo or in Cuscoopposite the Stadium at Condonimio Huascár 238 (Monday - Saturday 7am-7:30).

When I went, tickets were sold out for the following three months. I would try to see if you could go with a tour group in advance online so you don't show up and get very disappointed.

There are a lot of basic entrance tickets to MP. It would be pretty odd to be sold out for three months in advance. Perhaps you were looking at the Inca Trail or trying to climb Huayana Picchu which are more limited? Or dealing with a travel agency that wasn't being honest with you?

Hi i was looking at going in February until i found out that they are closed for the whole month of February, so i thought i would go in January but on the website http://www.machupicchu.gob.pe/ it says zero availability for every day yet December has 3000 spots for each day is this because they haven't released them? sorry to take over your post

from what I've read in this forum, the 2018 tickets are released sometime in December. It seems like there is not a clear answer what date in December they are released so I would check the site daily in December.
