Matarani is a major port city located in Arequipa Region, Peru, on the south-western coast of the country. The port of Matarani is operated by Tisur.
Matarani gives access to the colonial Arequipa city, situated 75 miles inland. From there it is a 200 mile drive to Lake Titicaca as well as 400 miles to Machu Picchu and Cuzco.
Matarani is among the three ports which comprise Peruvian termini of Interoceanic Highway. As such it's an important part of the current plan between the governments of Brazil and Peru to integrate Atlantic-Pacific corridor between both nations. The corridor would give the Brazilian country access to the Pacific Ocean, while not having to pay the restrictions, costs and distance of Panama Canal. It will also give Peru access to the Atlantic Ocean via a series of ports on the coast allowing easier and faster access to the atlantic markets. The corridor will also allow Peru to use the access to the Atlantic through the Amazon river via Peru's ports of Pucallpa, Iquitos and Yurimaguas.
