Peru is a beautiful country as complex as its most intricate and exquisite weavings.
This vast country is a paradise for the active traveler. Visitors trek to the glorious Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, but this is just a taste of what Peru has to offer. Explore pre-Columbian ruins or see the puzzling geoglyphs at Nazca. Visit remote communities and see how old ways live on. Immerse yourself, and you’ll leave Peru a little closer to the past.
Peruvian cuisine reflects local practices and ingredients. Ceviche with slivers of fiery chili and corn, slow-simmered stews, velvety Amazonian chocolate – in the capital of Latin American cooking, the choices dazzle with Spanish, indigenous, African and Asian influences.
