A new “Two for One” promotion was announced yesterday for the Boleto Turístico (tourist ticket) for entrance to archaeological sites in the Cusco region.
The promotion was announced through a statement published by the Committee of Integrated Cultural Tourism Services Cusco COSITUC.
The promotion applies to operators, agencies, tour guides and visitors.
Two for one tickets go on sale today and are effective beginning on Monday (January 11) and lasting through January and February. The cost for a single ticket was 130 soles prior to the start of the COVID pandemic and likely remains the same thought this has not been reported.
Tickets will be issued ONLY at the offices of the Deconcentrated Direction of Culture in Cusco on Calle Maruri Street 340. (This office is located across from ScotiaBank and is also the office where Machu Picchu tickets can be purchased.)
During this promotion, tickets will not be available for purchase in the archaeological parks.
A list of open sites that are included was not available. At least one — the Pachacuteq Monument — was not open as of a few days ago and I believe not all of the museums have been open as well. I will try to check on this and will update when I have more information.
This is a list of the sites that had previously been open prior to the COVID pandemic:
- Archaeological Park of Sacsayhuaman including Qenqo, Puka Pukara and Tambomachay)
- Archaeological Park of Pisac
- Ollantaytambo Archaeological Park
- Archaeological Park of Chinchero
- Archaeological Park of Tipon
