Peru: Land of the Incas

Peru, a magical and millenary country, has diversity and richness which are rare in the world, offering visitors infinite alternatives and the possibility of having a unique experience: history, culture, nature, adventure and much more in just one destination.

The word “Peru” evokes almost immediately the image of Machu Picchu and the Empire founded by the Incas, which show us the impressive archaeological heritage left by the most ancient civilizations which is a testimony of their art, costumes, rituals and development.

Likewise, the fact Peru has 84 out of the 104 existing ecosystems on the planet makes it a favorite destination for people who love nature.

In addition, its varied and delicious cuisine is a fusion of its native traditions with the culinary arts of Europe, Arabia, China, Africa and Japan. As a result we have unique flavors which make Peruvian cuisine one of the best and most varied in the world.

For this and many other reasons, Peru is an extraordinary destination to visit and it has recently become one of the top destinations chosen by thousands of tourists around the world.

Socio - Economic Reality

For the past few years, Peruvian economy has been growing, and it is projected to continue doing so. One of the most important achievements is the approval of the Free Trade Agreement with the United States. This promotes agricultural exports and above all, facilitates the negotiations for an agreement between the European Union and the Andean Community.

Tourism is an important factor in Peru’s development. The recent recognition of the citadel of Machu Picchu as one of the Seven Wonders of the World makes it one of the most important tourist destinations, representing centuries of history as an important part of all Peruvians’ identity.
