attract over 10,000 touristsNorthern Cajamarca region is all set to host its traditional carnival which is expected to attract over 10,000 domestic and foreign tourists. The carnival will be held from January 18 to March 1.

Cajamarca Regional Chamber of Tourism (Caretur) head Sergio Caceres told Andina news agency these figures resemble those from last year. He also said the influx of tourists on these days depends on the number of beds at hotels.

Nevertheless, arrivals might reach 15,000 during carnival season, because many people rent houses or stay at a friends’ or with relatives due to the lack of rooms.

Cajamarca’s tourism industry is on the rise, and this is due to the city’s quietness.
Caceres explained Cajamarca remains one of the favorite tourist destinations during the carnival season. “People come from everywhere, mainly from cities in northern Peru such as Piura, Trujillo, Chiclayo, Chimbote and also Lima.”

Caretur is in constant coordination with businesses (hotels, restaurants, tour operators and agencies, transport companies, among others), putting emphasis on a fair treatment of tourists.

Coordination also involves working closely with the Tourism Police, which safeguard visitors as they travel to various attractions in the city.

With the support of Foreign Trade and Tourism Ministry (Mincetur) and Promperu, Caretur plays a key role in the promotion of Cajamarca as tourist destination at tourism fairs on a regional and national basis.
