On June 30th Peruvian authorities released a new list of regulations for visiting Machu Picchu, which came into effect from July 1st. The main points impacting our visits are:
1. There is now a time limit to visit the citadel. Morning visitors must exit the site by 12pm and afternoon visitors by 4.30pm
2. Visitors must complete a designated circuit, in one direction only. Exiting and re-entering the site is not permitted and, upon completion, visitor must exit the site. There is no allowance for personal exploration of the site any longer.
Overall we support these changes as they help preserve this invaluable archaeological site. While this somehow restricts the amount of time we are now allowed to spend in Machu Picchu, we’ll do all possible to maximise your time there and make sure you have the best possible experience.
Our La Paz to Cuzco trips score an average of 3.5 out of 5 based on 2 reviews in the last year.
La Paz to Lima offers a great high-level insight into the cultures of Bolivia and Peru, both in the towns/cities, plus also the remote communities. There are some days of reasonable driving distance, so we preferred being in a group tour vehicle, compared to independent travel.
