Peru is a resource-rich country whose main exports (minerals, petroleum products) generated US$20.52 billion in 2009. International visitors generate only a fraction of that, nonetheless, they represent the second-largest source of foreign exchange (after exports) for Peru. In 2009, international visitors spent US$2.42 billion – 41% more than in 2005.

Moreover, the tourism sector is growing. In 2009, Peru attracted 2.5 million overseas visitors (up from 1.5 million in 2005) making it the fourth most popular destination in South America after Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
