Inkaterra Sees ‘Encouraging’ Signs In Peru

This week’s reopening of Machu Picchu after a period of political ferment in Peru, is “very encouraging,” says Jose Koechlin, founder and CEO of Inkaterra, “and we already see overseas tourists traveling from Cusco and the Sacred Valley to what is arguably the most important archeological site in South America.”

Inkaterra’s Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is the largest property in Machu Picchu Pueblo/Agua Calientes, the mountaintop village from which the site is accessed. Additional elements of the traditional circuit of Peru include two additional and exclusive Inkaterra properties: the boutique Inkaterra La Casona in Cusco, and the lavish Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba in the Sacred Valley.

On a tributary of the Amazon at Puerto Maldonado, the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is also operating normally. “We see light at the end of the tunnel with respect to the political situation in Peru,” Koechlin commented, “and we expect the flow of tourists to return shortly to normal.”
