Paracas retains spot as Peru’s fourth-most popular meeting destination

Peru'smost popular meeting destinationThe district of Paracas in Ica region has been once again named as Peru’s fourth-most popular meeting destination, thanks to a range of comparative and competitive advantages it holds over the others, said Eduardo Jauregui, head of the Paracas Chamber of Tourism and Foreign Trade (Capatur). It joins Lima, Arequipa and Cusco.

 

Jauregui noted the privileged geographical location, closeness to the capital city, road system, nice weather, increasing hotel and real estate investment, and the several tour services that turn Paracas into the preferred destination for high-level events like the Annual Conference of Executives (CADE), for instance.

 

The Paracas Reserve drew 48,000 visitors in 2016 and this year the number is expected to grow to 60,000, which proves Paracas’ huge potential as a tourist destination in Peru.

 

Meanwhile, the Paracas beach area is projected to receive some 500,000 vacationers, and the goal is to attract 1 million by 2021.

 

Gastronomy is another highlight that makes Paracas a must-visit spot.

 

Paracas houses 44 hotels (five, four and three-star) and lodgings, offering accommodation to suit all pockets.

 

Hotel investment keeps on the rise and is set to total US$100 million by 2021, when Peru will celebrate its bicentennial of independence; whereas real estate investment will reach US$200 million.
