Peruvian soul believes that Sustainable Tourism is nowadays one of the fundamental
strategies of growth for our country because it offers an alternative for socioeconomic
development, which is very attractive and causes low environmental impact.
We firmly believe that any entrepreneurship in Tourism must take place under the
guidelines of environmental, social and cultural sustainability, therefore, ensuring the protection
and sensible exploitation of our vast natural patrimony, as well as the integration and development of the diverse communities and peoples of our country.
Based on this awareness we have proposed a series of policies that allow us to align ourselves with our ideals.
