Lima set for significant hotel upgrades

For many years Lima has been seen as a mere stopping-off point for people heading to major tourist attractions such as Machu Picchu, however, this is no longer the case.

The capital city is now an appealing place in its own right and continues to attract thousands of people who have embarked on a Peru holiday.

It is fast becoming a hub for top quality gastronomy, with hundreds of fine restaurants run by some of the country's best chefs now lining the streets of Lima.

Lonely Planet has also recommended the metropolis to foreigners, stating: "This is Lima. Shrouded in history, gloriously messy and full of aesthetic delights. Don't even think of missing it."

People who are planning a trip to the South American country could soon find it even easier to secure luxury accommodation in Lima, as Andina reports that investment into the hotel sector is set to grow by a further four per cent in 2012.

Deputy minister of tourism Claudia Cornejo also revealed that Lima will host the prestigious South American Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference in September 2012.
