Peru Tourism 2012
With visitor numbers having risen to 2.5m in 2011, representing a 9% increase year-on-year, the government is developing tourist destinations outside traditional travel hotspots. While the focus has traditionally been on the country’s many historical and cultural sights, the sector is now seeing increased demand for business tourism services. Ecotourism is also a growth area, with more tourists coming to Peru to see the many wild plant and animal species of the Amazon. Niche segments also have a good deal of potential for expansion, and efforts are being made to diversify the options available to visitors and boost local economies throughout the country. This section includes an interview with Claudia Cornejo, Vice-Minister of Tourism.
