Peru: 8,000 cruise passengers expected to dock in La Libertad in Apr-Dec 2019

Some 8,000 international cruise passengers —mostly from the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, and France— will be docking at Salaverry Port in northern La Libertad region in the remainder of the year, the concessionaire of the maritime terminal has projected.

The arrival of cruise lines in the region invigorates its tourism and economy, due to higher demand for local travel services.

Cruise ships serve as tourism promotion tools since —through them— foreigners can get into cultural attractions —via the traditional city tour— such as Trujillo’s Historic Center and nearby tourist spots like the Chan Chan mud citadel, as well as Temples of the Sun and the Moon.

Other attractions include the Huacas de Moche site museum, the seaside town of Huanchaco and its traditional caballitos de totora (reed boats), as well as El Brujo Archaeological Complex, where the Lady of Cao is housed.

15 cruise ships have arrived in La Libertad region carrying nearly 10,597 foreign visitors since the company holding the concession —Salaverry Terminal Internacional— started managing the Salaverry Port.

“Upon their arrival, visitors are welcomed by dancers of Marinera —Trujillo’s flagship dance declared National Cultural Heritage,” the concessionaire underscored.


Salaverry Terminal Internacional will invest US$229 million in the port terminal’s upgrade project.

The company has performed dredging works as part of a mandatory scheme and, consequently, the port is ready to receive vessels with an 11.5-meter draught.
