The country has just won the enviable accolade of ‘World’s Leading Culinary Destination’ at the global edition of the World Travel Awards.

Already a tourist hotspot, Peru’s travel reputation was cemented at this year’s WTAs, viewed as the Oscars of world tourism, with it landing the top gongs for best cultural destination in the world, leading culinary destination in the world, and best tourist attraction in the form of Machu Picchu.

“This is the fourth time that Peru has been recognised as a leading cultural destination in the world and the fifth time that our world wonder, Machu Picchu, has been imposed in the category of tourist attraction,” the Commission for the Promotion of Peru for Exports and Tourism (Promperú) said.
Also, this is the 10th time that Peru has won the award as ‘leading culinary destination’ in the global edition of the WTA, “which brings us closer to the goal of positioning Peruvian cuisine as the best in the world.”

“It drives us to continue. These awards are an important recognition for the work of all Peruvians,” said the executive president of Promperú, Amora Carbajal.

“Knowing that our country is a destination that stands out in the world, with a rich culture and gastronomy that are increasingly valued by international travellers,  fills us with satisfaction and drives us to continue working to promote the attractive and diverse tourist offer. from Peru,” he said.
