The full Tourist Ticket remains valid for 10 days. It costs about $46 for adults, although international students are eligible for the discount rate of $25 as long as 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. The attractions covered by the full Tourist Ticket are divided into three circuits. Tickets for Circuit 1 are valid for one day; tickets for Circuits 2 and 3 are valid for two days. A partial ticket costs around $25 for adults.
Keep in mind that attractions do not sell individual entry tickets, so either way, you will have to pay for a tourist pass—even if you only plan on visiting one museum or site.
