Pitumarca Mayor Teodosio Cruz Huancachoque indicated between 500 and 2,500 visitors pass through his district while heading to Winikunka
The highest numbers are registered on the weekends. Said figures might have been increasing for the past two years. In this sense, the boost may have started in November 2015.

Lastly, Baca indicated Winikunka keeps capturing the globe's attention, as this natural destination was advertised at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia with the purpose of drawing potential visitors.
