I´ve doing this amazing job over ten years
I began to work for Valencia very recently about one year ago .
One of the most interesting places that I have had the chance to visit in Peru was the pre- Inca city of Kuelap is in the northeast of Peru in the Amazonas province. It is not so much a hidden place because a many Peruvians visit the area. But i think an archaeological site like this deserves more promotion and a better tourist infrastructure and a strategic plan to market this magical area to international tourism.
Definitely one of the most important things that I like to show to my clients is that our country has a real connection with our ancestors and their roots. So, it is incredibly interesting how Peru is confronting the globalization of tourism while maintaining the real essence of the people, without losing our identity.
I would like to repeat once more that there is “ No Culture without identity” Another phase I use regularly is “we don’t know where are we going if we don´t know where we have come from”
Beer .- definitely Cuzqueña
Wine .- Intipalka
Dish.- fusion food Nikkei (Peruvian and Japanese food)
Too many but I remember a “Proposal” in Machu Picchu. It was really emotional because we had a long journey, some difficulties, due to a strike and unfortunately the train couldn’t leave the train station. I was with my clients waiting for a solution, to find out when the train could reach Machu Picchu, and it was almost 4pm, Knowing that they that they close the entrance to Machu Picchu at 5pm. Fortunately we could take the bus in time and we could see Machu Picchu with a terrific sunset and the marriage proposal. It was simply magic!
Well, I hope to recover our way to life, this pandemic has shown us how fragile this activity and tourism in general is, but it has also taught us many things that we can use to our advantage.
