Luisa Lafaix Raffo

I am passionate about discovering people's traditions, cultures and approaches by traveling around our diverse country: Peru. There is always something new to know and learn and to marvel at its nature and tangible and intangible heritage. Also, I am a food lover and Peru is the best place to taste various dishes and drinks from different regions. It is like paradise for the palate.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"According to my experience, I can recommend that responsible travel is a priority. Putting into practice sustainable tourism is the basis for being part of a valuable experience. I know about experiences in beautiful places on the northern coast, the southern Andes and part of the Peruvian rainforest. That is nature trips in general, beach, mountain and also archaeological, historical-cultural and artistic sites. Furthermore, culinary experiences are my favorite."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I fell in love with tourism while I was in college studying my major: Sustainable Tourism. It's amazing how my mind and heart align to imagine a way to explore and adventure a place as soon as I see or hear about iit. I believe that even if you already know a place, there is ALWAYS something new to learn and the approaches to each trip are unique."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I've been lucky and blessed to have the chance to travel and visit diverse locations, but there is one trip that warms my heart and it was the last one I did before the pandemic began. I'll never forget the peace and joy inside me when I went to San Martin and Amazonas regions in the Peruvian Amazon. The sensations of freedom and disconnection from the routine were incredible. "

Machu Picchu in February
Machu Picchu in February: Travel Tips, Weather, and More

The big heads-up for Machu Picchu-bound travelers this month is that the Inca Trail is closed for maintenance, but Machu Picchu itself remains open. The heaviest rain of the year and the trail closure keep crowds away, but you will never see the ruins so refreshingly empty of tourists. A few interesting festivals take place across the Cusco region too, notably carnival.
