The ancient city of Machu Picchu is the most visited tourist attraction in South America. Peru is the gateway to the mountain ranges that surround it, and this, combined with stunning natural scenery, vibrant cities and a culture melting pot make Peru Holidays some of the most exciting on Earth.
Situated high up in the Andes Mountain range, the mythical city of the Incas is reached by hiking the famous Inca Trail or taking a train from Cusco. But visitors to Peru will soon discover that the country has a lot more to offer than just Machu Picchu.
Peru may not be the first destination that springs to mind when you are thinking about a beach holiday, but Peru holidays offer some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Stretching more than 1,400 miles down a sprawling coastline, Peru offers everything from luxurious resorts to surfing Meccas. Máncora in the North is referred to as the “Hawaii of Peru” and the resort offers first class accommodation with plenty of luxurious extras to be found. Puerto Inca in the Southern most part of the coastline, offers two small bays perfect for travellers looking to relax, fish or snorkel.
Peru holidays have so much to offer
For visitors looking to explore the ancient cultures of the Incan civilisations, a visit to the city of Lima is a must. Once considered dangerous and not recommended for non-Peruvian nationals, the city has pulled itself up immensely in recent years, making it one of the most interesting and diverse cities in the Americas.
Lima is a sprawling capital city, home to some 9 million inhabitants, spread across 43 districts. It now offers some uber modern seaside resorts, fine dining experiences and even a golf course in the middle of the financial district! Although it is built in the middle of a desert, Lima is also known as the “Garden City” and is home to one of world’s largest fountain parks. A city of contrasts, Lima is the perfect base for your Peru Holiday.
With well over half of Peru covered by dense tropical rainforest, this jungle region forms part of what is probably the most biodiverse region on Earth. For eco-tourists looking to discover more about the fragile Amazonian Rainforests, or others just wanting to visit, there are plenty of guided tours and excursions to be enjoyed.
Peru is the perfect example of south American exploration at its finest. From the banks of Lake Titicaca, home to the Uru people, to the oasis of Huacachina, Lima is an exciting, and diverse region perfect for anyone looking for a real adventure holiday.
