About Peru

Experience a guided tour to Machu Picchu via a 4 day trek on the Inca Trail.  The government has limited the daily passes of 500 to help preserve the precious land that has seen so many travelers over the years.  Fortunately the Inca’s made other trails which do not require a pass such as the Lares Trek & Salcantay Route.  Another option is to do a one day Inca Trail.  Rise early to see the Sun Gate at it’s finest.

Peru has many options for accommodations from hostels, boutique style hotels to luxurious places.  There are many wonders to see in Peru besides the famous Machu Picchu.  Visit the Chan Chan, Colca Canyon or Cuzco for an inside look at the culture and people.    The best way to see the famous Nazca Line is by plane.

Peru is certainly a culinary delight with chefs preparing all the popular Peruvian dishes such as cuy.  Check out the local markets for hand-crafted items or see how many varieties of potatoes you can find.

Over 60% of the land mass is forest perfect to spot over 1800 species of birds.   Summer is from December to March & Winter from June to September.  Peru has 12 of the World Heritage site located in the country.  The local currency is Nuevo Sol.
