Big Changes in Peru

Direct, Online Tickets

Beginning this week, the general public can buy tickets directly to access various Peruvian national parks.

While travelers must still book through an agency for certain protected areas in Peru, such as the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu of Manu Biosphere Reserve in the Amazon, you can now buy tickets directly to access these eight national parks:

  • Paracas National Reserves & the Ballestas Islands (in Ica, Peru, 4 hours south of Lima)
  • Palomino Islands (off the Port of Callao in Lima)
  • Tambopata National Reserve (by Puerto Maldonado in the Peruvian Amazon)
  • Pacaya Samiria National Reserve (by Iquitos in the Peruvian Amazon)
  • Lachay Hills Reserve (near Lima)
  • Pómac Forest Historical Sanctuary (in the Lambayeque region)
  • Tingo Maria (in the Huallaga Valley)
  • Huascaran National Park (in the Cordillera Blanca)

Tickets can be purchased at, and will be valid for up to one year after purchase.


A New App

The new Natural Peru app for smartphones can be downloaded for iOS and Android operating systems. It's a free service developed by SERNAMP, the Peruvian agency which manages Peru's protected areas. The app will allow you to easily access information about attractions, services, routes and other info pertinent to travelers in English and Spanish.


The SERNAMP Passport

Those who will be in Peru long enough to visit various parks might find the new Sernamp Passport useful. It provides access to ten different national parks and is valid for up to two years. At a price of S/60 soles, it's a steal. It includes all of the sites mentioned above, with the addition of Junín National Reserve, Chacamarca Historical Santuary, and the Yanachaga-Chemillén National Park.
