Peru is voted 'Best Culinary Destination' for the sixth consecutive year

Peruvian gastronomy does not stop reaping success in the world. The evidence is irrefutable. Peru stands for the sixth consecutive year with the award of' 'Best Culinary Destination' by the World Travel Awards (WTA), which in this last edition will be held in the city of Phu Quoc, Vietnam.

Likewise, the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, in Cusco, won the prize for' Best Tourist Attraction' in 2017. The WTAs give this awards based on the organization's online voting, which involves tourism professionals, industry entrepreneurs and travelers from around the world.

Peruvian Gastronomy Sixth Consecutive Year

Isabella Falco, director of Country Image of Promperú, said that "these recognitions we receive as a country are the result of the work we are doing to promote our tourist resources and our gastronomy".

In statements to the Andina news agency, Falco assured that these awards place Peru in the eyes of the world, especially the travel industry's elite.

It is worth noting that according to a study carried out by Promperú, the main reason to visit Peru is to visit the citadel of Machu Picchu. However, gastronomy is already among the motivating aspects of travel. 82% of tourists visiting the country consider it a gastronomic destination.

A recent news item published in the Peruvian press also states that due to this growing recognition of local gastronomy, Promperú is preparing a delegation to show the virtues of national dishes to visitors who come to Russia to see the Football World Cup, that takes the Inca team to this competition after 36 years of absence.

There are currently three Peruvian restaurants on the list of' The '50Best Restaurants in the World'. These are: Central, in fifth place; Maido, in 8th place and Astrid & Gaston, in 33rd. In addition, 10 restaurants are on the Top '50Best Restaurants in Latin America' list. These include Maido, Central, Astrid & Gastón, Osso Carnicería and Salumería, among others.

So now you know. If you want to come to know Machu Picchu and the beauty of the Sacred Valley, give yourself the time to make a reservation in one of these restaurants (or go for example to a Market to taste a good ceviche for no more than S/ 20), and enjoy one of the most spectacular gastronomies of the planet.
