This year, the United States plans to invest $2.67 million in Choquequirao. They want to put this money towards research at the archaeological site.

Specifically, the research will consist of additional excavation and stewardship of site. One of the leaders of the project, Vidal Pino, asserted the importance of this stewardship.

He states, “As for maintenance, conservation, and updating of the Choquequirao Archaeological Park Master Plan, some $891,000 is being invested over the 2015-2017 period.”

In addition to contributing to research activities on-site, this money will also aid in the efforts to make Choquequirao more accessible.

The updates to this project will be beneficial to the site´s growing popularity as a tourist destination.
