Magical, Mystical Peru

14 Oct

Peru’s history creates a multicultural melting pot making it a must see for any traveler.  The vast diversity in culture, art, food, and music make it an ideal spot offering a wide variety in adventures.  Composed of coastal regions, highlands, and jungles, this destination has something for everyone.

Peruvians are described as laid back and friendly.  Learn a little Spanish before you go in order to engage with the locals.  This allows you to truly experience Peru and become submerged in the culture.

Peru is for thrill seekers.  Its extensive trails and canyons offer the perfect adventure for climbers, hikers, and cyclists alike.  Don’t forget about Peru’s many beaches providing sun and surf year round.

Peru is for history and nature lovers.  10,000 years of history and lush landscapes make Peru a must see destination.  Machu Picchu offers a glimpse into the unbelievable engineering feats of the Inca empire dates back to the mid 1400’s.  Perhaps you’d like to explore the Nazca lines and the Pampas de Juma where large figures (best seen from above) were drawn into the desert landscape.  Or you can take a trek through Manu National Park which features a vast array of birds, butterflies, reptiles, insects, amphibians, and plants.

Whatever your fancy you are sure to find it in Peru.
