Since the 2000s, Peru's third largest industry for national income has been tourism (behind fishing and mining). From modern and ancient cities, Amazonian rain forest, vast desert, to small fishing villages with local culture and cuisine, there are a range of different regions, tastes and climates, also home to one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu, Peru has a lot to offer event professionals.

With Cusco being a popular Incentive destination, naturally it has many luxurious five-star hotels and impeccable boutique lodging establishments: from renovated ancient monasteries to converted Inca palaces and exquisite 300-year-old mansions, complete with heated swimming pools and beauty treatments based on age-old techniques. Due to the city having been founded in 1535, most visitors notice the antique feel to the city. Cusco has a long and fascinating history and there are plenty of museums and preserved 16th Century buildings to prove it. The city sits at the foot of Macchu Piccu, a mountain that holds a ruin of an Inca citadel at its peak, a highly popular site to visit for incentives.
