Talavera mentioned that he is optimistic in reaching the goal set by Autocolca for 2010, because the financial crisis is over and this allows foreign tourists to travel around the world and choose Peru as their destination.
Colca Valley, besides its natural beauty, offers visitors attractions such as the viewpoint of Cruz del Condor, where tourists may watch the flight of the mythical bird.

Other attractions include colonial churches, music, dances, gastronomy, handicrafts and other customs. The valley is located four hours away from the city of Arequipa.
