Lima has an excellent international airport and it's located exactly in the center of Latin America and has good connections with North America, Europe and Oceania.
There are no Visa requirements for most people coming to Latin America from the rest of the world.
Round-trip air tickets from Lima to Cusco cost varies between 100 and 200 USD (http://www.starperu.com/).
Peru offers many cultural and touristic attractions, including the world famous "Machu Picchu", near Cusco (the new 7th wonder).
Cultural activities are planned to happen before, during, and after the event, so the whole family is encouraged to come.
Picchu means Summit in quechua (Inca's official language), so DrupalPicchu means Drupal Summit. This gives an original name to such an important historic event for the Drupal Latino Community.
This is where the first Drupal Summit Latino was celebrated. In terms of logistic, Lima has an excellent international airport and it's located exactly in the center of Latin America. Plus, there are no Visa requirements for most people coming to Latin America from the rest of the world. Also, the country is affordable and offers lots of cultural and touristic attractions.
It's near the world famous Machu Picchu. People from all over the world will enjoy coming together in this magic place.
The Drupal Latino Community is ready and committed to organize an international event. The cancellation of DrupalCon Sao Paulo by the Drupal Association was very frustrating and the community wants to show to the world that it has the power and the will to organize an event like this. We have many experienced community leaders, and Drupal events are popping up in Latin America at an incredible rate. We must foster this momentum and energy and take it to the next level! With your help, we can make it happen!
Why January 2014?
This date is exactly between DrupalCon Europe and DrupalCon North America.
