Peru 2019 Tourism

While Peru’s rich and diverse cuisine continues to attract visitors, demonstrated by a range of quality eateries in Lima and the proliferation of Peruvian restaurants around the world, Machu Picchu remains the number-one attraction for visitors. Named the “World’s Leading Tourist Attraction” for 2018, the historical site is seeing faster-growing tourist rates than the country overall. Herein lies the main challenge for the industry: diversification. Greater connectivity and infrastructure efforts in other regions – particularly the north – is hoped to pull tourists to different parts of the country and see them engage in adventure and nature tourism in addition to visiting cultural sites. This chapter contains an interview with Eduardo Ibarra, Hotels Business Unit General Manager, Grupo Los Portales.
