From the heights of Machu Picchu to the Amazon jungle and pink dolphins, a Peru vacation engages all the senses.
Travel to Peru is as rich a cultural experience as travel to any other destination in the world. Because of this, Peru tops the bucket lists of many of the world’s most intrepid travelers, for a wide variety of reasons. Between the wildlife and nature-viewing experiences available in the nation’s jungles and the unique cultural sites in the Andes Mountains, there are many experiences travelers can only have while on a trip to Peru.
Here are the ancient ruins at Saksaywaman and the Nazca Lines; the lost fifteenth century Incan city of Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World; and the many other (less traveled) cultural sites of the Incan Empire, like Ollantaytambo. Peru displays Spanish colonial charm in the cobblestone streets of Cuzco, and modern flair in the cutting edge restaurants that make up the culinary wonderland of modern Lima. Colca Canyon is one of the world’s deepest gorges, where the Andean condors soar; while the world’s highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca borders Peru and Bolivia. As one writer put it: “If Peru didn’t exist, travel guide books would have to invent it.”
Travel to Peru can also provide a window to its unique wildlife and intriuging jungles, perhaps best explored on an Amazon River cruise in the comfort of a small luxury river boat.
