Escape The World Cup with Inkaterra

World Cup 2010

Football fever is spreading across the world thanks to a certain tournament, but those seeking tranquility in South America should look no further than Peru: the perfect destination to escape the hype.

No doubt Brazil will be the busiest country in South America this summer with heaps of football fanatics heading over to support their teams. Peru on the other hand, will be a place of ambient serenity – perfect for those who want to avoid the commotion of The World Cup. It’s also a go-to place for those that would like to enjoy the football from a not so busy part of South America. That way, fans can still say that they were in South America for the time of The World Cup.

World Environment Day at Inkaterra

World Environment Day Inkaterra 2014

Yesterday we celebrated World Environment Day: an annual event organised by the UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) to promote awareness and action for the environment worldwide. Over the years, this celebration has grown into a global platform with more than 100 countries participating. Last year, the event was held in Mongolia and focused on anti-food waste with the slogan ‘Think.Eat.Save’.

This year World Environment Day was hosted in Barbados with the theme of SIDS (small Island developing states) in the context of climate change. The slogan created to reflect the theme is ‘Raise your voice, not the sea level’.  The aim this year is to focus public attention on these areas and the urgent need to protect the islands from the growing risks and challenges they face as a result of climate change. As you may already know, we are doing our bit to try and conserve the seas of Peru, through our ongoing work at Cabo Blanco.

World Environment Day is the time to realise that caring for the earth is everyone’s responsibility. We are a 100% carbon neutral travel organisation and we always ensure to integrate sustainable practices into all aspects of what we do. This year we celebrated World Environment Day by doing the following:
