The National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur) said Sunday that tour package sales in Peru may increase by US$ 17 million in the next twelve months, thanks to promotional campaigns launched by tour operators at Peru Travel Mart 2009.

“Those who sold "Peru Destination" until the first half of 2009 generated a tourist flow of 5,518 people, totaling US$ 6’739,348. However, the new sellers may generate an additional flow of 7,800 people; which would bring US$ 10’186,800 more,” he told Andina.It should be noted that in 2008, more than 2 million tourists arrived to Peru, 14 percent more compared to 2007. Most visitors came from Chile and the United States.

In this regard, Puga added that Peru's most promoted tourist destinations are Cusco, Lima, Machu Picchu, Iquitos, the Sacred Valley, Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Nazca, Puno, Paracas, Cajamarca, Ica, Chiclayo, Amazonas and Trujillo.
