Social Crisis

Hide all

Peru is being affected by a serious social and political crisis since December 7, 2022. Below a brief on the situation.

We are a private Travel Agency, so we can only inform you about the current official situation and its impact on the Cusco region and the touristic services we offer.
Details

We have neither the means nor cannot be held responsible for the information provided on this page, which can only be approved and confirmed by the relevant authorities. Please contact them for official and updated information on the situation. Please also avoid asking us if the situation will improve in a week, in a month, in six months; we don't think anyone has the answer yet.

What is the current situation?

Following a political crisis, Peru is facing a serious social crisis which affectis the entire country, particularly the southern regions of the country. We could give an idea of its magnitude by saying that since December 7th to this day (February 06th, 2023), we count 58 victims. The situation is serious and the victims come to add to the problems of shortages and inflation. In the region of Cusco, the situation is very complicated. Some sites are closed by the protesters themselves, and others by the authorities as a safety measure.
