A 24-year-old Filipino backpacker was among the hundreds of international visitors who were left stranded in Machu Picchu as a result of protests that forced the closure of the Cusco airport, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Friday.

The embassy committed to keeping monitoring the coordinator of the Filipino community in Peru and has provided his contact information.
Regional airport openings by December 18 are given priority by the Peruvian government, the embassy reports.
Widespread demonstrations in Peru have been sparked by the deposition and imprisonment of former president Pedro Castillo, disrupting travel and planes.
Six buses and about 60 passengers are said to have been stranded for more than 48 hours in the Andean village of Checacupe in Cusco because locals won’t let them travel to Bolivia.
