On November 1st, Peru will reopen its doors to travelers from around the world. The nation is set to begin allowing flights of up to eight hours long, meaning passengers can now arrive from cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta, Toronto, Mexico City, San Jose, and more. Passengers will also be also to skip quarantining if they can provide a negative COVID-19 test result upon landing.
This also means that Machu Picchu, one of the greatest wonders on the entire planet, will be reopening to visitors. The famous historic site will be operating at 30% capacity, meaning that only 675 people will be allowed to enter each day. There will also be marked pathways to prevent groupings. As an added precaution, Machu Picchu will be doing temp checks to all visitors. If anyone is over 38C (100F) they will not be allowed to enter.
Because of the limited entrance, it’s also important that travelers book their tickets in advance because they’re set to go quick. To get yours and to see availability, you can visit MachuPicchu.pe.
