Peru Travel Guide

Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu

Peru is the darling of South America. Throughout the year, tourists arrive by the plane and bus load for a chance to visit Machu Picchu. And why not? With a variety of Peru tour packages available, that shouldn't be surprising. But there's much more to Peru than these famous Inca ruins. In recent years, for example, Peruvian cuisine has gained popularity around the world.

North of Lima lies the Cordillera Blanca, one of South America's most popular mountaineering destinations, as well as the ruins of ancient civilizations that pre-date the Incas by hundreds of years.

South of Lima, the Nazca Lines continue to amaze all who view them from above, while hikers marvel at the depths of the Colca Canyon outside Arequipa. In addition to the coast and mountains, the Amazon jungle runs all along the Eastern edge of the country.

Come to Peru for Machu Picchu, and stay to discover everything else the country has to offer.
