Machu Picchu has been closed to tourists for quite some time (around eight months) but it recently reopened!
Lonely Planet reports that the site “opened with a bang.”
When the site reopened to a small amount of tourists, they got to see a light show and a gratitude ceremony.
Peru is slowly reopening for tourism and international flights are now scheduled from 25 cities in the Americas. New York is among the list of cities where flights have resumed from. Depending on what our travel might look like this year, Peru could definitely be on the list!
Flights from Europe might restart soon however, some countries are having an uptick in COVID-19 cases.
Currently, Machu Picchu has reopened with reduced capacity of 30%. That means only 675 visitors can check out this incredible site each day.
To enter Peru, visitors “must show proof of a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before their flight.”
