Aracari’s very own Marisol Mosquera was quoted in today’s Financial Times, found at the following link. The article speaks about how Peru coped when its greatest attraction was forced to close for a period exceeding 2 months! Thankfully, Machu Picchu is now open for business and as breathtaking as ever.
We will be publishing our Spring newsletter next week which touches on the same topic. Machu Picchu’s 66 day closure had a devastating effect on the local economy and the Peruvians need tourists now more than ever.
Just as the article states, Peru was already working towards diversifying their portfolio of offerings since there is no end to the attractions found in Peru. Aracari has known this for years. We recommend going beyond Peru’s most famous post card picture and exploring the broader picture.
Stay tuned for our newsletter and thanks for reading!
