It is interesting toobserve the increased tourism budget being allocated by the country of Peruhttp://www.peru.info/perueng.aspspecifically targeted to encourage English speaking visitors to their country. Who ever or what ever entity is setting this strategy has determined the continuing unfavorable currency relationship between the dollar and the Euro represents a huge opportunity to capitalize on the availability of increased visitors. Too bad LL isn't currently offering the Orient Express Peru packages, but the Inkaterra packages still look pretty good.
From visiting the excellent weblink you provided in your post on Peru, it's clear that the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Commerce and Tourism is the official federal entity responsible for the strategy targeting English and Americantravellersand thereby promoting increased tourism, business and industry in Peru. A contributing factor may also be that Allan Garcia, the fairly newly re-elected President of Peru, obviously sees tourism as a vital key to the revitalization of that country's economy. Last time he was in charge back in the late 1980-90s, his main preoccupation was dealing with The Shining Path, a Maoist rebel army that was terrorizing much of Peru (and hence not a really good time for tourists to visit the country).
I also checked out Spirit Airlines website and saw that they do have some terrific prices on flight between Lima and several U.S. centres, like Detroit. These flights cost about half of what I paid just atwo years ago when I flew from Miama to Lima and back on one of the major U.S. airlines serving South American destinations. Next time I visit my sister and her family in Lima, I;ll definitely see what Spirit has to offer. Thanx for the information.
