Peru’s cuisine continues to draw international accolades.
Peru was named ‘World’s Leading Culinary Destination’, while Machu Picchu was named the ‘World’s Leading Green Destination’.
The World Travel Awards – often called “the Oscars of the travel industry” – was launched in 1993 to acknowledge and recognize excellence in the global travel and tourism industry.
This year’s grand ceremony took place in New Delhi, India.
Last September the WTA named Peru as ‘South America’s Leading Culinary Destination’, beating out other nominees such as Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela, during a ceremony held in the Turks & Caicos Islands.
