Tourism grows in the Colca CanyonDecember 28, 2010
The Colca Valley in Arequipa, Peru should receive an estimated 210,000 visitors next year due to growth in tourism, predicted Jose Luis Talavera, manager of the Independent Colca Authority, known as Autocolca.
Talavera expects the region to meet this goal thanks to the increasing number of visitors seen in recent months. He also pointed out that in order to help achieve the expected outcome, Autocolca will implement several promotional strategies domestically and abroad.
By the end of 2010, Colca Valley recorded 175,000 visitors, exceeding 2009 by more than 16%, so growth expectations for 2011 are high, he said.
Colca Valley tourists mainly come from Europe (France, Italy, Germany, Spain and England), the U.S. and Canada.
