Peru Reports 7.1% Increase in Tourist Arrivals

LIMA The number of foreign tourists arriving in Peru increased by 61,916, or 7.1 percent, in the first quarter compared with the same period in 2015, Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Magali Silva said Friday.

Chile was the country sending the largest number of tourists to Peru between January and March, with a total of 307,842, an increase of 5.3 percent over the same period last year.

The United States followed with 131,443 tourists in the first quarter, an increase of 10.1 percent from 2015.

Member-states of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum accounted for 56.4 percent of all international visitors to Peru during the first three months of this year, Silva said.

The APEC group includes Chile and the United States.

Europeans made up 14.5 percent of all foreign visitors to Peru between January and March, with people from the Netherlands constituting the largest national contingent.

The first quarter saw a 42.7 percent surge in tourist arrivals from China, though visitors from all Asian countries were only 6 percent of the total.
