Peru

Peru is a must-see for any first timers to South America! It is most well-known for Machu Picchu, the fifteenth century Incan citadel located high in the Andes and one of the seven world wonders! But there are three other distinct regions in Peru that add to its allure: the Pacific Coast deserts with their famous Nazca line drawings in the south and the pre-Inca archeological sites of Chan Chan in the north, and the Amazon and its vast jungles and waterways to the east. In addition to the tremendous historical and outdoor adventure opportunities found here, visits to Peru’s bustling cities and marketplaces in Lima, Cusco, and the Sacred Valley will bring your journey to life. This is a small but mighty country, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
