There are few countries in the world that offer tourists the astonishing variety of places to see and things to do as the mysterious country of Peru. Here, you are blessed with majestic mountain ranges, exotic beaches, vast deserts and tropical jungles, not to mention archeology, intriguing rich history and an abundance of wildlife.
When you think of Peru, extraordinary remains from ancient civilizations are sure to cross your mind. The Lost City, Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World is one of the most famous cultural pieces of history in the world. The Inca Empire, perched high on an unobtainable mountain, hidden away from the world, beckons to you. The animal life and panoramic views make this spot a top photogenic archeological site, almost worshiped by visitors.
Looking for more history on your Peru vacation? Perhaps you should take a venture to the desert to see the Nazca lines. The haunting, unexplainable lines drawn in the desert, left to represent something that we will never know.
Everything about Peru is stunning. Whether it is a parched desert, soaring mountains or a remote rainforest, there is always sure to be an abundance of wildlife. Your Peru vacation can lead you hiking through tall snowy peaks one day, working on your tan lying on a tranquil beach the next day, paddling though low rainforest or drifting through the world's highest elevated lakes on nothing but a reed boat the next.
Your vacation in Peru offers more than an abundance of sports and activities including surfing, sand-boarding, rafting and mountain biking. After your body is tired from playing hard all day, soak in one of the country's healing hot springs. Once you are all refreshed, go mingle with the friendly locals, listen to some fantastic music, eat delicious food and tour a museum or two.
Lima is always a favorite stop by tourists. The city sits between the desert and the sea and there is always something to do there offering you a deep cultural experience.
Tumbes and Piura on the Northern coast house Peru's favorite beaches for surfing, deep sea diving or just plain relaxing. Then, traveling to the South side of Lima, you can visit the Paracas National Reserve to observe a large concentration of marine life and birds.
Trujillo, always a favorite city for people vacationing in Peru is known for being the “City of Eternal Spring” for the beauty it presents. You'll find charming bright colonial mansions and some of the best seafood in the world.
There are those that take a vacation to Peru simply for the Pisco distilleries and wineries that are open anytime of the year, always offering tasting.
Manu National Park is always a treat to visit on your vacation. This is Peru's most prized treasure in biodiversity. This park is the home to over 2,000 plant species, 1,200 butterfly species, 800 different types of birds and over 200 mammals. This park is a vacation in itself and a stay of at least seven days is recommended when attempting to observe everything it has to offer.
Of course you cannot go to Peru for your vacation and not venture deep into the rainforest. Iquitos is the largest jungle city in Peru and can accommodate you with any tours you may wish to take.
Peru is a country of endless possibilities and one you will be glad you traveled to on your vacation. The country gets more popular everyday as more people spread the word on what a sensational vacation destination this is.
