Tourist activities in Cusco and throughout Peru keep on going

Upon the successful evacuation of tourists from the town of Machu Picchu (formerly Aguas Calientes) due to the intense rainfall that occurred last week, the Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru, Martin Perez, has stated the following remarks:

The city of Cusco, located 110 kilometers (68 miles) southeast Machu Picchu, maintains all its tourist activities under normal conditions. Rainfall in this city, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, presents the usual seasonal characteristics (moderate rainfall). Thus, all the archeological and cultural attractions in the city and its surroundings continue open to the public. The complete listing of the sites that are receiving visitors, both in the city and its surroundings, as well as updated images, can be found on and

World Heritage: Machu Picchu

The Ministry of Transport and Communications has announced that it has started the repairing of the non-asphalted route that connects Alfamayo and the Hidroelectrica railway station - which also connects Santa Maria and Santa Teresa en-route. From that point, it will be possible to take the train to the Machu Picchu railway station.
The Peruvian Government is already making all its efforts to make a second way to access Machu Picchu available in the medium term. 
PromPeru, the Exports and Tourism Promotion Board, is about to launch, along with the private sector, a big advertising campaign to promote tour packages to Cusco as well as the destination itself, both domestically and abroad. 
It is also worth mentioning that the weather phenomena that affected the town of Machu Picchu did not have a widespread impact; they were concentrated in certain zones of the Andes. Most high valued Peruvian destinations such as Arequipa, Iquitos, the Moche Route in the northern coast, and Paracas, south of Lima, among many others, are entirely ready for the visitors to modify their tour packages, offering dozens of attractions. Information on these destinations can be found on and
