The Arequipa Economic Corridor is located in southern Peru. It limits to the north with Ica, Ayacucho, and Apurímac; to the east with Cusco and Puno; to the south with Moquegua and Tacna; and to the west with the Pacific Ocean. Its landscape is made up of plains, mountains, volcanoes (Misti and Ubinas, the last active volcano in Peru), and canyons (mainly the Colca, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the U.S.) Below the mountains the terrain is flat and fertile, while the heights are desolate and rough.
The weather is homogeneous along the Corridor. The weather is that of a subtropical desert, with an average temperature of 20.5°C (maximum 33°C, minimum close to 9°C). The weather in the cities is mild and dry, with scarce rainfall and intense sunshine. The high areas are between 4,525 m.a.s.l. (Arequipa), with temperatures than can drop below 10ºC.
The Pan-American Highway connects Arequipa (920 km, 11 hours). Flights are through Rodriguez Ballón International Airport.
