Population
27.000.000 inhabitants.
- Urban: 72,3 %
- Rural: 27,7 %

Peru is a nation of mixed ethnic origins. Throughout its history, Peru has been the meeting ground for different nations and cultures. The indigenous population was joined 500 years ago by the Spaniards.
As a result of this encounter, and later enriched by the migration of African blacks, Asians and Europeans, Peruvian man emerged as the representative of a nation whose rich ethnic mix is one of its leading characteristics.

Language
- Spanish: 80,3%
- Quechua: 16,2%
- Other languages: 3,0%
- Foreign languages: 0,2%

Currency
The official currency in Peru is the Nuevo Sol (S/.), which is divided into 100 centimos. The currency includes coins for 5, 10, 20 and 50 centimos and 1, 2 and 5 sol coins. There are bills in the denomination of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 Nuevos Soles.

Other religions: 2,56%
Any Religion: 1.65%

Geography
Peru is divided into three regions: the coast, the highlands and the jungle.
Although this simple division is a fair portrait of Peru's geography, the reality is much richer and far more complex: in Peru, nature appears to have taken on particular characteristics which have turned its mountains, plains, jungles and valleys into unique habitats.
An extraordinary variety of eco-systems shelters a wide diversity of animals and plants.

Archaeological heritage
Ten thousand years of history are lived through 180 museums and historical places.

Peru is a country that sings and dances in joy and sadness with color and a great deal of paraphernalia. Peruvians celebrate some 3,000 festivals all over the country.

Incomparable cuisine
Over 40,000 restaurants across the country reflect the diversity of a nation that has mixed its native traditions with the cuisines of Europe, Arabia, China, Africa and Japan. The result: unique flavours that make Peruvian cuisine one of the best and most varied in the world.

Recipes such as cebiche (raw fish marinated in lemon juice), pachamanca (meat and vegetables cooked underground), chupe de camarones (shrimp soup), ají de gallina (spicy chicken) and juanes (cornmash pastries) are just a few of the mouth-watering dishes served up in Peru.

Peru was gifted with lands and seas of divine abundance and we, the Peruvians, for centuries now, have given thanks for this gift by cooking, eating, and creating just as the gods do.

While Peru inevitably evokes images of Machu Picchu and the Inca empire, the country is also riddled with archaeological sites which are a legacy of even more ancient times, when great civilizations bequeathed a legacy of their art, customs and rituals, their wisdom and skills.

The Inca empire was a recent arrival during the process of cultural development in the Andes during the pre-Hispanic era, and the history of the Incas barely accounts for a century within the 20,000 years of human occupation of Peruvian territory.

Much earlier than the Incas and while civilizations like the Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Indian, and Chinese (3000 and 2000 B.C.) flourished, the city of Caral, located north of the city of Lima-Peru, was built; this was the first American expression of a Pre-Ceramic urban settlement with monumental architecture in an area greater than 10 hectares. Later, in the northern highlands, the Chavin (800 – 200 B.C.) achieved significant advances in architecture, engineering, and agriculture.

The Chavín civilization (1500-400 BC) achieved considerable prowess in architecture, engineering and agriculture in the northern highlands. Along the north coast, the Moche civilization (200 BC-700 AD) is famous for its realistic pottery (portraits carved into pots and gourds) and its pyramid-shaped temples. The same area was later controlled by the Chimú kingdom (900-1450 AD), who built Chan Chan, an immense mud-brick citadel featuring 12-meter-high walls and superb architectural work.

To the south, the Nazca people (200 BC-900 AD) etched an impressive series of figures etched into the desert floor known as the Nazca Lines, while graves belonging to the Paracas culture (800 BC-600 AD) have unearthed superb weavings which point to the magical and religious vision that governed the lives of this ancient civilization.

Centuries later, the Incas (1300-1500 AD) were to make Cusco the center of their empire, building major constructions such as Sacsayhuaman, Pisac and Koricancha. It is here that myth and history merge, where the Inca roads, the towns, people and traditions are a living example of the Andean spirit, sacred and monumental.

"The reported figure is higher by 42,083 travelers from abroad than the one recorded in the same period last year,” said Magali Silva, Mincetur’s head.

The top government official noted that the above-mentioned growth in foreign arrivals is explained by a sharp increase of tourists from Bolivia and some European countries, thus helping the country's tourism industry to expand.

Likewise, Silvia pointed out that Mexican visits to Peru shot up by 17% in the first year of the visa waiver between the Andean nation and Mexico.

Foreign tourist arrivals have increased over the past five years, going from 2.13 million in 2009 to 3.16 million last year. Chile was the largest source of tourists for Peru with 886,485 arrivals in 2013.

Peru hopes to draw over 3.5 million foreign visitors in 2014.

According to the latest WTTC research, Travel & Tourism accounts for 9% of the Andean country’s economy, generating one million jobs or one in 12 of all jobs in the country.

"During the four-day holiday weekend, we expect an increase of between two percent and three percent from the same period last year," said José Miguel Gamarra, Peruvian Deputy Tourism Minister.

The Independence Day holiday travel period in the Andean nation runs from Saturday, July 26th to Tuesday, July 29th.

Likewise, the senior government official noted this period represents a strongest travel volume for citizens than Easter week holidays as they prefer to make air travels rather than a road trip.

Therefore, Mincetur, through its tourism campaign which runs under the theme “And what are your plans?” seeks to increase the inflow of domestic travelers to Peru’s top destinations.

In this regard, Gamarra pointed out this initiative seeks to show tourism, not only in theory but in practice, as inclusive and can substantially improve the quality of life for many Peruvians in the country's inner regions.

According to Alfonso Velasquez, chief executive officer of state-run program Sierra Exportadora, the initiative aims to improve remote populations’ ability to maximize their tourism potential to their own benefit.

In this regard, Velasquez recalled the case of Incan remains found in Aypate, located in Ayabaca province, two hours south of the Peru-Ecuador border, which were used as religious and military centers long ago.

“About 2,000 tourists are expected to visit Aypate archaeological site this year; we hope to double annual visitor numbers by the end of 2014,” he said.

In addition, Velasquez told Andina news agency that before the Incas’ arrival, this area [Aypate] used to be ruled by the Guayacundos, an ethnic group that coexisted with the Incas.

The Aypate Inca construction, at 49 kilometers (30 miles) east of the province's capital is considered one of Ayavaca's most important attractions.

According to Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur), Aypate was named the ‘Archaeological Capital of Piura’ by the regional office of Peru’s National Institute of Culture in 1996

The announcement was made by CNTA’s chief executive, Shao Qiwei, following a meeting Tuesday with the Peruvian Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister, Magali Silva, in Beijing.

Qiwei noted the Peru guide targets to fill the lack of information the Chinese population have on the huge importance of the largest tourist destinations in the Andean nation, despite of being a strong and rich millennium-old culture.

In turn, the senior Ollanta Humala administration authority pointed out that of 3,300.000 foreign tourists who flocked to Peru yearly, a few number ranging from 12,000 to 14,000 came from China.

“This online advocacy is part of the government’s efforts to take a bigger number of the 60 million Chinese who use to make overseas trips annually,” Silva said in her remarks to the gathering which was made up of counterparts from this country and leading investors.

Furthermore, in pursuing this aim, the government through its export and tourism promotion board –Promperu- is also near completion of a special film designed to draw Chinese tourists to Peru.

Likewise, the Ollanta Humala administration is trying to address the shortage of Peruvian tour guides who speak Chinese. To this end, it is providing 50 percent scholarships for guides to study languages for which speakers are in short supply.

The final four finalists were announced on Monday, 14th July 2014 and only one of them will be crowned as the world’s best on October 21. 

In its first stage, the award committee received over 2,200 nominations – a record – for this ninth edition, and they later shortlisted just eight, which –according to the official website- was a vast task. 

Afterwards, organizers requested people who had travelled or worked with the guides shown in the shortlist to send their comments via post, email or through the website to help the judges decide.

Peruvian tour guide Efrain Valles graduated from Cusco’s Tupac Amaru University. He has spent the last 12 years leading treks across Peru, projecting his infectious energy and enthusiasm onto every group he takes on.

Amid guiding, looking after his family and charity marathon training, he did London 2012 dressed as a chaski (Incan messenger).

Valles also does voluntary work at Chicuchas Wasi, a non-profit organization that helps girls in extreme poverty in Cusco, Peru.

“We could not be more proud of him [Efrain Valles]. This is a nice reward for all his hard work in the career that he loves,” it was stated on Chicuchas Wasi’s official website. 

In addition, some people described him as a “great ambassador for Peru who wants nothing for himself” and someone who communicates through “humour, smiles and hugs.”

The other three finalists are Bunyong Roeurn (Cambodia), Charlie Jaques (UK, working France/worldwide) and Lewis Mangaba (Zimbabwe, working in Tanzania).

“We were all humbled yet again by the remarkable guides who had each inspired dozens, if not hundreds, of their clients and peers to write in support of them. It was heartbreaking to have to make a choice,” commented Wanderlust's Lyn Hughes, one of the judging panel.

“I do hope that some of the Highly Commended guides, as well as the winners, will make it along to the Awards Ceremony in October,” she added.

The full results will be announced at London's Royal Geographical Society on October 21. The evening will include an update on previous winners, some of whom will attend.

Launched in 2005 in memory of Wanderlust’s co-founder Paul Morrison, the Wanderlust World Guide Awards is the only global award for tour leaders and guides.
