The Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru made a tour of Tumbes
The destination is preparing for the reopening of tourism with new biosecurity protocols
The Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Rocío Barrios, today carries out a series of unexpected inspections of various tourist places and establishments in the Tumbes region. In this way, it seeks to verify that the services offered comply with all biosafety protocols.
While touring Puerto Pizarro, as well as the Hotel Royal Decameron Punta Sal, Punta Sal Suites & Bungalows Resort, Casa Andina Select and Las Cherelas Apart Hotel, he indicated that the main concern of the Government is to safeguard the health of workers in the sector and visitors .
“This is the first region I survey after the launch of our Go Back campaign. We seek a responsible reactivation of tourism and, therefore, I came to verify that the tourist services of hotels and others comply with the biosafety protocols. Our main concern is the health of workers in the sector and visitors, "said the head of Mincetur.
Minister Barrios said that, in the case of Puerto Pizarro, she was able to talk with local authorities and the population so that this destination is ready when tourism reopens.
As it is recalled, the “Volver” initiative seeks to inspire and keep alive the desire of all Peruvians to travel again and to reconnect with their roots and nature. The central product of the campaign is a video clip that seeks to communicate that tourist destinations are preparing to receive travelers, also remembering the use of masks, social distance, constant hand washing, among other preventive measures.
Minister Rocío Barrios pointed out that in order for Tumbes to offer visitors the best possible travel experience, the region must obtain the “Safe Travels” Seal.
It is important to mention that a week ago and, thanks to the efforts of the Mincetur, Peru received from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) this distinctive, which is qualified as the first seal of safety and hygiene of the world, in tourism, before the Covid-19.
