According to the recommendations of international organizations to Machu Picchu should only enter 2500 people per day. This is because Machu Picchu is collapsingis with all the people that walk inside. That is why in the official website of the Peruvian government it shows only 2500 spaces availability. But in the hight season from May to october there is more than 5000 people in Machu Picchu every single day.
HOW DOES IT HAPPEN? It turns out that in high season we have a lot of tourists to visit Machu Picchu and no tourist can stay without visiting Machu Picchu in generally they have only one day to do it also is more convenient for the government because they make more money than it should. Then if you are traveling to Machu Picchu you have to purchase your tickets in advancea and avoid terrible inconveniences.
