5 green, Fair and Local choices for Travelers in Cusco
The city of Cusco is a hotspot for touristic activity in Peru. Being the ancient center of the Inca Empire of Peru, it today combines culture, history and a modern way of living in itself. Every year around 1 million tourists come to the city of Cusco to explore the city and the surrouddings with the City Tour, or the Sacred Valley Tour. Or they scroll on the streets, visit museums, and explore Machu Picchu by train or by doing a trek such as the Inca Trail or the Salkantay Trek……. and they enjoy the local, colourful festivals.
However, awareness of nature conservation, emission reduction and waste management has not yet reached everybody here in Peru. So, how can we behave as a responsible traveler in order to comfort a little of our “green consciousness”?
