Once you have arrived in Lima, you may
need to pick up your permit at INRENA offices during your first
day in town. The offices are open in the morning and afternoons.
You will have to leave identification at the gate. Ask the attendant
to direct you to the "Direccion de Areas Protegidas y Fauna
Silvestre." If possible contact Jessica Espinoza before going.
We strongly recommend you to send all your documents one month in
advance and have somebody in Lima monitoring the permit for you.

the local INRENA offices to pick up your PARK permit. The current
director of the park is Biol. Angela Oroz, whose office is at Av.
Oswaldo Baca 402, 1°etapa, Urb. Magisterio, Cusco; telephone
(084) 240898; fax (084) 240898. His office will prepare the
set of documents you will need to pass the guard-post at the boundary
of the park. These documents will be prepared on the strength of
the authorization you received in Lima, which you will be asked
to submit to the Cuzco office. We strongly advise that once you
have received your authorization and associated receipts from the
Cuzco office of INRENA, you make extra copies at one of the many
photocopying services available in Cuzco. You will need to
leave copies of all paperwork with the various guard posts (usually
2) you pass on your trip through the park. With documents and receipts
in hand, you are ready to enter the Manu National Park
