The problem is that the vast majority of travelers are buying via internet. Then those who leave to buy when arriving in Peru, either because they do not have a credit card or because they do not know exactly when they will be in Machu Picchu, risk not getting tickets for the desired date. Although with Machu Picchu there is usually no problem. Since there is a limit of 2,500 people per day, the authorities (unfortunately) do not control, and the citadel has received more than 4,000 visitors per day, which is a real madness, not only for the bad experience of the traveler to have so many people in the citadel, but, that for the conservation of the same.

Cusco: This option is still valid, you can buy the entrance to Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu in Cusco, with the option to pay in cash or international credit card.


Aguas Calientes: You can also buy in Aguas Calientes, but you can only pay in cash. Do not forget that buying in Peru is very likely not to get entry to Huayna Picchu.
