Peru is gaining popularity as a top global tourism destination for Asian travelers from Japan, South Korea and Singapore, according to the country's Foreign Trade and Tourism Ministry (Mincetur).

Peru’s capital Lima stands out as the leading Latin American city to do business, due to the expansion of the country’s economy and the ongoing implementation of various massive infrastructure projects, according to an annual list made by the Bogotá Rosario University.
The study reveals the Andean nation’s capital is followed by Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Sao Paulo, Brazil, although these last two actually dropped from the previous ranking.
Lima last year was listed number four, and most probably the current advance can be attributed to the expansion of the Peruvian economy, 5 percent, the concession for a second metro line in Lima, the many other infrastructure plans and the growing number of trans-national and multi-Latin corporations that have moved into the city.
The Intelligence report from the Competitive Strategies Center, belonging to the Rosario University lists 51 Latin American cities taking into account a series of factors such as purchasing power; economic dynamism; financial potential, business friendliness reputation, manpower and urban comfort.
Moreover, the index consults data from other rankings such as Google Business; Alexa portal; leading businesspeople from the region and the country’s calendar of international fairs and business events.
“There has been a State policy from the last five administration regarding commitment to a transparent economy, fiscal prudence and freedom to make business. We’re a reliable long term country”, said Alfonso García Miró, head of the Peruvian Confederation of Private Enterprises, Confiep.
This can be checked by the previous rankings: in 2010, Lima was ranked ninth; in 2011, 7; in 2012, fourth and in 2013 it stood firmly in the same position.
Nevertheless, this does not mean the Peruvian capital does not have problems: contrary to other countries in the top of the list, en.mercopress.com reported.
For instance, Lima does not have its own offices to attract investment, except for Pro Inversion, which is extended to the whole country.

Peru’s Ministry of Culture is evaluating a series of changes to visitor services at Machu Picchu, including relocating the checkpoint entrance and staggering visits in two admission schedules.

In a statement, the ministry said that the checkpoint entrance would be located near the Manuel Chavez Ballon museum, which is on the road that leads up to the Machu Picchu ruins from the town of Aguas Calientes.

The checkpoint entrance is currently a narrow, cramped area next to the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge at the Inca citadel itself, where visitors line up for the stringent ticket inspection.

Other changes in the revised Machu Picchu Master Plan include a more comprehensive prevention program against forest fires in the sanctuary, and the possibility of including ecotoilets, although this is being evaluated against experiences and solutions at other world heritage sites.

The major change, however, may be in the ticketing system to the citadel.

In an interview with Infotur, the Minister of Culture, Diana  Alvarez-Calderon, said her ministry was looking at a possible change in the ticketing system, to establish two admission periods to the site —one in the morning and another in the afternoon— in order to even out the load of visitors at the ruins at any given time.

“Ninety percent of the visitors go in the morning, and only 10 percent in the afternoon,” Alvarez-Calderon said. “We will change the ticketing system so that more people can enter in the afternoons, and that will require the trains to have different schedules.”

Meanwhile, the new regional director of Cusco’s Culture office, Ricardo Ruiz-Caro, said that relocating the entrance will allow not only for a more spacious and comfortable facility for visitors —including rest rooms, a first aid center, and a coat check service— but also a more complete museum with detailed information from original and recent research and excavations.  The current Manuel Chavez Ballon museum will become a well-equipped research center for new studies.

The changes are expected to be implemented for the 2015 season.

Machu Picchu is Peru’s top tourist attraction. Some 2,500 local and international tourists visit the site every day, according to the Culture Ministry.

WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO VISIT IN SACRED VALLEY?

Places and activities recommended in Sacred Valley
Few places in the Tahuantinsuyo could compete against the beauty and wealthy of this valley, for this reason it received that name. Its character of "sacred" has survived the pass of the time and that magic continues seducing the visitors. Most of them, surrendered to its enchants, decide to leave everything and settle under the shadow of the eucalyptus, at the bank of the Urubamba.
The Sacred Valley has become one of the most important tourist centers in the country. Apart from the incomparable historic wealth, the area of Urubamba offers infinitive possibilities to enjoy for the tourist: trekking, thermal baths, rafts or kayaks rides, paragliding or hang gliding, horseriding, climbing, etc. Lately they have developed participating tourist programmes inviting the visitor, for instance, to work in a terrace or collect salt from the salt pools. The Sacred Valley also holds two of the most important handicraft markets of Cusco (Cuzco): Pisac (Pisaq) and Chinchero.
Although the tourist infrastructure has grown meaningfully in the last years and today we offer a variety of accommodation and restaurant facilities, the valley has managed to preserve its natural enchanting peace.

Geographic location:
Yucay was the name the Incas used to call this fertile valley, one of the most fertile of Peru: its Sacred Valley. They used to be lands of the Inca and his successors , then the Spaniards recognized their possessions thanks to royal favours that granted those territories to the Inca nobility. As a prove of those times we find the palace of Sayri Tupac in Yucay.

The Sacred Valley of the Incas spreaded along the Vilcanota river (the same that going down takes the name of Urubamba or Willcamayu). It embraces the area included between the towns of Pisac and Ollantaytambo.It is located at 15 km to the North of Cusco. It is at 27km (1 hour) to the Northeast of Cusco and you can get there through an asphalted road in good conditions.
It is possible to get there by two asphalted roads: the first one is the most used leaving from Cusco by Chinchero (28km) to Urubamba (57 km).
The second important road leaves from Cusco to the northeast towards Pisac (32 km) going next to the Vilcanota River up to the village of Calca (50 km) exactly in the heart of the valley. The first route is the most used due to its excellent conditions.
In the valley, there are a series of picturesque towns ( some of them has beautiful colonial churches), terraces and other archaeological remains, as well as the most famous corn in the world. Due to all these and its exceptional climate, the Sacred Valley has became a destiny no one visiting Cusco can miss.
Among the tourist activities we have the andinism practised in the snowy peaks of Chicon, Vtkav Willca (also known as Puma Sillo or Veronica), Piturisay, Sawasiray, Terijway and Sunchobamba (all of them are tops of the the chain of mountains of the Vilcanota up to 5000 meters high), trekking, rafting (along Pisac, Calca, Huaran, Ollantaytambo), horsing and mountain riding. In the town along the valley there are numerous hotels and restaurants of typical food. We recommend to spend the night in one of them.

Climate: It is at 2800 m.a.s.l.. Its climate is not so severe. As in any other place on this altitude, its climate has two seasons: rainy and dry season. Rainy season is between November and April. The heavy rain may fall suddenly and unfortunately we can not always enjoy a blue sky. But rainy season has its advantages as the hills are covered with thick grass and it is warm.
During dry season the colors of the sky are brilliant but air is dry so the skin seem to break. Generally nights are cold and it can be freezing at dawn. The sky full of stars becomes a real show this time. Talking about its climate, the Sacred Valley is the perfect place. The ancient Peruvians realized that so they came here to get cure from their diseases. Despite of reaching high temperatures and being in an area full of vegetation, there are not mosquitoes in this valley due to its altitude. Besides, we hardly get hot as there is always cool air.

The Road: If you go by car, it would be useful to know that going out by Saphi street you will find San Carlos petrol station where you can get gasoline and check your car comfortably.
Following the route you will arrive at San Cristobal, and if you have time you can visit the church and admire the most popular protecting saints in Cusco. The road to the Sacred Valley is the same to go to Sacsayhuaman so if you desire and have time you could also visit the ruins of this complex: Quenco, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay.
The amazing detail of the road is that leaving Cusco means going up to the mountains surrounding Cusco so you will admire the most impressive sights of the city, especially at sunset and sunrise. If light and time are favorable, you can take magnificent photos. From these points it is possible to admire the layout of the city carefully. When days are clear, the contrast between the red roofs and the blue sky is spectacular.

By the path of the Eucalyptus: The path is nice even though it is a little curved. Along all the way, the eucalyptus and the genista go with the traveler. Four minutes far from Tambomachay and we get to the creek of Corao and the belvedere, from where we admire the valley. Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sundays they celebrate a handicraft fair there.

PISAQ
Pisaq is located 30 km from Cusco and it takes approximately 45 minutes by bus to get there. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays there are crafts fairs in the town's main square, with the participation of artisans from the whole town who maintain a constant productive activity throughout the entire year. 9 km from the town of Pisaq, high in the mountains in the midst of cultivated terraces and the Inca constructions you can find the homes of the people who live in the Andes. Here there are 6 citadels which make up a stunning architectonic and historic panorama of the area.
URUBAMBA
It is a town of Inca origin at 76 km far from Cusco by Pisac, and at 57 km (45 minutes) by Chinchero. It is located in the same heart of Urubamba valley and it is surrounded by beautiful landscapes outstanding the snowy peak of Chicon and the fields. It was one of the main agricultural centers of the Inca empire. In its square we find a colonial church. There are several hotels, taverns and rural restaurants.

Ollantaytambo
Ollantaytambo is 97km from Cusco. It was an agricultural, administrative, religious, military and social complex for the Incas which the Spaniards called "Fortaleza".

Maras /Moray
Maras is located in the district of Maras, at a height of 3,380 meters above sea level, at a distance of 48,880 km from Cusco. Two roads come out of the town of Maras, one to the archaeological complex of Moray and the other to the salt mines of Maras, both approximately 6 km away from the town. The population of Maras can appreciate the range of snow-capped mountains around the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Vilcabamba.

Chinchero:
Chinchero is located at a height of 3700 meters. The population lives in dwellings whose foundations and stone walls come from pre-Hispanic constructions, with colonial and modern additions. People here conserves their typical way of dressing, which is notable for the vivacity of colours and designs. They also barter at the Sunday fairs just as they did in the time of the Incas, though the residents now also use monetary transactions.
