It is with great pleasure that we can announce, Aracari founder and president Marisol Mosquera has been included on Travel + Leisure’s A-list of the World’s Top Travel Agents for 2011. Hurray!
Appearing in the September edition of the magazine, Marisol is listed in the Latin America section as the only entry for Peru. Having been awarded the same accolade in 2010, this marks the second year in a row that Aracari have made the T+L grade.
With 2011 having been a particularly exciting year for Aracari so far, we’re delighted to have been recognised with this prestigious award in our 15th year of operation as premium luxury travel agents.
As well as the exciting celebration trips that we have organised for our 15th Anniversary and the centenary of Machu Picchu’s scientific discovery, we have strived in our endeavours to offer the most innovative, imaginative and authentic tours in Peru and across the Andes region.
To this end we’ve been running up mountains in Cusco, visiting local schools and communities in the Sacred Valley, collaborating with renowned archeologists on Northern Peru’s Moche Route, and travelling the world to spread the word amongst other ventures.
Travel + Leisure also picked up on our excitement in Lima’s thriving culinary scene, saying that “Mosquera’s go-to restaurants in the city are Mercado, which serves classic Peruvian dishes, and Maido sushi bar.”
And we’re equally delighted to say there’s plenty more in the pipeline; we’re currently designing a new range of tours and visits, including an art tour of lima, brand new culinary tours, and a walking tour of Barranco. Keep an eye out!
