Peru has been awarded three prizes at the Word Travel Awards 2021

The experiences, adventures, attractions, and locations that Peru offers to anyone who decides to venture out in its lands are as amazing as endless. The excellence of them makes Peru be constantly awarded, as occurred in the World Travel Awards 2021: Peru won three world awards during the expecting award held in Moscow, Russia.

The South American country was nominated for six different categories in total and won three of them. Peru was awarded in the following categories:

  • World’s Leading Culinary Destination 2021: Peru
  • World’s Leading Cultural Destination 2021: Peru
  • World’s Leading Tourist Attraction 2021: Machu Picchu


This acknowledgment continues establishing Peru as a world’s leader destination for any tourist in the world. The World Travel Award’s initiative is to acknowledge the countries, entities, and tourist attractions as the best in the world to reward, celebrate and show their virtues before thousands of users who are part of the travel and tourism industry.

Wake-up in Peru

With the World’s Leading Culinary Destination award, Peru makes the difference in the gastronomy industry: it was elected for nine years in a row as the world’s best culinary destination. This award is well-deserved since the Peruvian food stands-out around the world due to its unique tastes and millenary preparations that are even from the Pre-Colonial era. Are you craving for a must-eaten Lomo Saltado or a delicious Cebiche? You can find them and more dishes in Peruvian’s restaurants.


The World’s Leading Cultural Destination award confirmed that the historical richness and cultural legacy offered by the south America country is valued around the world. There is not a spot in Peru where there is no culture, thus, it is the preferred destination of the lovers of indigenous people, community tourism, history, and tradition.

At the same time, the Historical Sanctuary of Machupicchu obtained the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction award after a second-time consecutive voting. The last time the Cuzco treasure obtained the award was in 2019 because the organization cancelled the event during 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now you are aware: travel around Peru to discover adventures never imagined before, to delight your palate and to be surrounded by natural and historical wonders.
