Starting today, September 15th, there will not be any excuses to avoid living an unforgettable story in Peru's Natural Protected Areas (ANP), since the general public will be allowed to buy access tickets to eight of these natural sites.
This innovative proposal is comprised in the "Unique Places give unique stories. Experience them in protected areas" campaign launched by the Peruvian State-run National Service of Natural Protected Areas (Sernanp). It is aimed at bringing domestic and foreign tourists closer to ANP.
This way, tickets may be bought online (www.teleticket.com.pe) quickly and without the need to stand in line. Tickets will be valid for a period of one year.
Natural protected areas are: Tingo Maria and Huascaran National Parks, Paracas National Reserves, Islands, Islets and Guano Reserves (Ballestas and Palomino), Tambopata, Pacaya Samiria and Lachay; as well as Pómac Forest Historical Sanctuary.
Also comprised in this set of products and services is the ANP Passport, which serves as a promotional ticket to allow access to 10 natural protected areas by paying for only six of them. It is valid for a period of two years.
It costs S/.60 (nearly US$18.70) and may be acquired at Sernanp headquarters (Address: Diecisiete 355, Urb. El Palomar, San Isidro, Lima) or at Ica, Callao, Lima (Lachay), Lambayeque, Junín, Huaraz, Tingo María and Pasco-based offices.
Another innovative product is the "Peru Natural" free app for smartphones, which may be downloaded for iOS and Android operating systems.
The app will provide information in English and Spanish, concerning attractions, services, routes and more tools the visitor needs to arrange his/her next visit to a natural protected area.
