Peru received the World Travel and Tourism Council seal of “Safe Travels,” — the first safety and hygiene stamp in the world against COVID-19, and music to the ears of travel-starved adventurers all over the world.


Earning the seal requires strict adherence to designated CDC and WHO guidelines. The seal is also approved and backed by the World Tourism Organization.


So now Peru won the seal of approval, but what does that mean? It means Peru is (pretty much) open for business. See what’s new for Peru:


An All-New Stay

Fairfield by Marriott recently opened Fairfield by Marriott Lima Miraflores, located in Lima’s main tourist district in front of El Reducto Park. The hotel offers 147 guestrooms, separate work and rest areas, meeting rooms, a business center, convenience store and gym — and modern luxuries and comforts everyone can appreciate, from active families to business travelers.


Reopened Activities

Archaeological sites in Cusco resumed Oct. 15, for travelers and locals at 50 percent capacity. Tourists to the area must comply with all safety measures to ensure their own safety and that of the locals. Guests can again visit the beloved archaeological complexes of Pikillacta, Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Sacsayhuaman, Chinchero, Moray and Tipon.


And a Touch of Sustainability

Machu Picchu is set to be the first tourist destination in the world to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in an effort to become carbon-neutral. The objective will be to reduce the carbon footprint of travelers to Machu Picchu by 45 percent by 2030, and 100 percent by 2050. The study follows the guidelines of the climate agreement of Paris, and may ultimately save the landmark from irreversible damage due to climate change.
