Lima promoted as tourist destination on Latin America markets

Lima, Feb. 20. Peru's Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru) launched its promotional campaign "Que no te lo cuenten. Descubre Lima" (Don't wait for people to tell you about it. Explore Lima), an initiative that invites Latin American travelers to discover the Peruvian capital through its delicious tastes, exciting experiences and unique identity.

The campaign seeks to promote Lima as an ideal weekend getaway in Latin America ?mainly on priority markets like Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Mexico? and popularize several tourist attractions the city has to offer, considering the wide range of daily and short-haul flights available.

As part of the promotional strategy, videos are being uploaded on Visit Peru's Facebook fanpage, featuring actor Francisco Cabrera and Zsa Zsa Frayssinet, hostess of the travel TV show Diario de Carretera.

The first one captures Lima's privileged location, its front view of the Pacific Ocean. The Costa Verde seafront is an ideal place to have fun at parks, go bike riding, learn how to surf, try paragliding, eat ceviche and more.

The second video will explore the several culinary options, since the capital city is the perfect place to get a taste of the country's flavors and its gastronomic tradition, famed around the world but now characterized by fusions and unique trends.

Lima is also depicted as a moving stage, going from the simplicity of a market's food stall to a sophisticated menu. The cultural and artistic scene will be summed up in another video. It will showcase craft fairs, signature design boutiques, discos, pubs and live shows.

Finally, a separate video is being made for the Historic Center. It will encourage tourists to go sightseeing in the city and enjoy its splendid architecture and history merged with modernity.

Lima-related images and posts will be shared on social networks to motivate potential visitors.

This way the campaign provides an upgraded Lima-inspired website for Latin American markets with information tourists may need both in Spanish and Portuguese.

    Peru General Information

    Peru, the largest area in the Andean countries, was the cradle of the most advanced indigenous civilizations and most powerful empire in  South America pre-Columbian cultures. Peru was also the focus of Spanish colonial domination for its first two hundred years of rule. What remained of pre-Columbian America with regard to people, culture, and settlements is perhaps better represented in Peru than in any other country.

    The country has a 2,400 kilometer (1,500 miles) long coast on the Pacific Ocean and bordes Colombia and Ecuador in the North, Brazil and Bolivia on the east, and Chile on the south. It is the only country that borders all the Andean state.

    Language: the official languages of Peru are: Spanish which is used on a 73% of the population; the Quechua or runasimi, spoken for a  24% of peruvians. Some specialists recognise to especific variations of quechua on the national territory : the huáihuash, which is quite popular on the central part of Peru and the huámpuy, spoken by the rest of the country.

    Most of the quechua-speakers are bilingual and have spanish as their second language.

Unesco presence to assess Machu Picchu confirmed for this week

Cusco (Cusco region), Feb. 20. The State-run Decentralized Culture Directorate of Cusco (DDCC) confirmed the upcoming presence of a Unesco Reactive Monitoring mission in the southern region to assess the state of conservation of Peru's Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

Said delegation will be composed of four supervisors led by a World Heritage Centre representative, DDCC Head Vidal Pino informed.

"They will receive reports on the actions taken to redress the five observations made [by Unesco]," he said.
Documents and measures implemented to harmonize legislative frameworks and strengthen Machu Picchu's governance mechanisms will be presented on February 22-23 at DDCC headquarters.

Machu Picchu's management, public use plan, carrying capacity of the Sanctuary, risk reduction and disaster recovery plan, as well as urban planning will also be assessed.

"These five observations have been fully raised. That's what we are going to show to the Unesco mission," Pino assured.

On February 24, the international delegation will arrive in Machu Picchu for an in-situ inspection.

"We are confident we will manage to definitely overcome the risk of Machu Picchu being included in the List of World Heritage in Danger, which was latent a few years ago," he anticipated.

  • Titicaca Lake, Uros and Taquile Islands

    TITICACA LAKE

    The lake is located at the northern end of the endorheic Altiplano basin high in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia (Surface elevation3,812 m - 12,507 ft). The western part of the lake lies within the Puno Region of Peru, and the eastern side is located in the Bolivian La Paz Department.

    Titicaca Lake, Puno, Peru

    The lake is composed of two nearly separate sub-basins connected by the Strait of Tiquina, which is 800 m (2,620 ft) across at the narrowest point. The larger sub-basin, Lago Grande (also called Lago Chucuito), has a mean depth of 135 m (443 ft) and a maximum depth of 284 m (932 ft). The smaller sub-basin, Wiñaymarka (also called Lago Pequeño, "little lake"), has a mean depth of 9 m (30 ft) and a maximum depth of 40 m (131 ft). The overall average depth of the lake is 107 m (351 ft)

    Five major river systems feed into Lake Titicaca. In order of their relative flow volumes these are Ramis, Coata, Ilave, Huancané, and Suchez. More than twenty other smaller streams empty into Titicaca, and the lake has 41 islands, some of which are densely populated.

    Having only a single season of free circulation, the lake is monomictic, and water passes through Lago Huiñaimarca and flows out the single outlet at the Río Desaguadero, which then flows south through Bolivia to Lake Poopó. This only accounts for about 10% of the lake's water balance. Evapotranspiration, caused by strong winds and intense sunlight at high altitude, balances the remaining 90% of the water input. It is nearly a closed lake.

    Since 2000 Lake Titicaca has experienced constantly receding water levels. Between April and November 2009 alone the water level dropped by 81 cm (32 in), reaching the lowest level since 1949. This drop is caused by shortened rainy seasons and the melting of glaciers feeding the tributaries of the lake. Water pollution is also an increasing concern because cities in the Titicaca watershed grow, sometimes outpacing solid waste and sewage treatment infrastructure.
