PROMPERÚ – Peru’s tourist board – has just launched a new stay home tourism campaign: ‘Dream, then travel’.

The new campaign has been kicked off with this inspirational video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VDhL6-8dYo

Peru’s official travel social accounts will post the video to reactivate tourism, one of the sectors most affected in the country by this pandemic. The video seeks to inspire travellers, once the coronavirus crisis is over, to choose Peru for their next vacation. The video shows Peru’s tourist attractions, gastronomy, culture and nature of the coast, mountains and rainforest.

As part of the campaign, PROMPERÚ presents a series of ways to explore Peru during lockdown:
