You can go to Machu Picchuin any month of the year. However, according to your plans or vacation dates, before organizing your trip, take into account the recommendations of travelers who came to explore the Inca citadel before you, or read the recommendations of our Blog:
Machu Picchu is open to the public 365 days a year.
The best months to travel to Machu Picchu are April and May.
During the rainy season (January - March) fewer travelers go to Machu Picchu, and therefore the prices of the services can be more comfortable in some specific dates.
During the winter or dry season (June - September) Machu Picchu receives more travelers than any other time of the year. For this reason, the price of tourist services is much higher than usual.
For many travelers, from the second half of September to the first two weeks of November are also ideal dates to visit this world wonder.
If you are going to travel to Machu Picchu during the week of New Year, Easter, Fiestas Patrias (July 28 and 29) and Christmas, be very careful and make your reservations well in advance. These are the dates when everything is full and the availability of trains, hotels and entrance tickets to Machu Picchu are not available for last minute reservations.
