Ultimate PERU Travel Guide
Peru is a country located in South America. Lima is the capital and it is a country known for its high mountains, exceptional Incan ruins, culture, colors and landscapes. This Peru travel guide is laid out to help you plan the ultimate trip to this country.
Peru is easily one of the most visited countries in South America, with good reason as it is home to the wonder of the World, Machu Picchu. But there is so much more to the country than that one site.
There are deserts, there are rainforests, there are high altitude mountains and there are giant lakes. There’s an abundance of culture, history and wildlife to learn about too.
Anything less than a 2-week trip will leave you wanting more and I think you could easily max out your 6-month visa exploring Peru’s many wonders.
We’ve been to Peru three times over the years and will not hesitate when an opportunity to go again presents itself. We hope you find our advice both helpful and inspiring.
