Travelers are increasingly mindful of the need for Responsible Tourism and the positive impact they can have with a little forethought and effort in planning their trip.
Several years ago, my parents came to visit us in Lima to look after the grand kids while Siduith and I were out of town on business. When we got home, we sent my folks off for a vacation to experience Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.
The centerpiece of recent efforts to beautify Lima’s downtown, this collection of more than a dozen water fountains opened in 2007. It’s since become an enormous draw for Peruvian families and is climbing the charts as a must-do attraction for international travelers visiting the capital. This year it was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest fountain complex in the world.
