The Boleto Turistico: Cusco Tourist Ticket

The Boleto Turístico del Cusco, or Cusco Tourist Ticket, is a set-fee ticket that grants the holder access to a wide range of archaeological sites in Cusco and the Sacred Valley, as well as five museums in Cusco.

Boleto Turístico Prices and Duration

The full Boleto Turístico costs S/.130 (US$50) and remains valid for 10 days. International students are eligible for the discount rate of S/.70 (US$27) if they have a valid student card.

If you don’t want to see all the attractions -- or you don’t have the time -- a partial ticket (boleto parcial) might be a better option.

Tickets for Circuit 1 are valid for one day; tickets for Circuits 2 and 3 are valid for two days.
