Visiting Peru is taking a journey to the country of mysteries, ancient ruins, impenetrable jungle, winding rivers and alpine lakes, rugged canyons and towering sand dunes. The stunning scenery of the vast Andes mountain range, the arid desert of Nazca, the Pacific beaches in the capital of Lima, the high canyons and the virgin jungle encompassing the Amazon River make the country very unique and not to be missed. Numerous climatic zones and geographical features of the country allow you to travel through it almost at any time of the year. The main attraction of the country is undoubtedly the city of Cusco, the center of the Incan empire, and the nearby Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, with its legendary hike the Inca Trail. A huge number of ancient ruins of the Inca era are concentrated here in a small area in the north of the country and are at the top of many world travelers’ bucket lists. But Peru has even more to offer and has endless sights to check out for the adventure traveler: from the famous Nazca desert geoglyphs which can be viewed by foot or from above by plane, or the pre-Inca ruins of Chan Chan in Trujillo- the largest mud brick city in the Americas, also the secluded regions of Cajamarca known for its spectacular caves, geological features, and tall cascading waterfalls, or to the amazing floating hut cities of the Uros people on Lake Titicaca. Visit the blue waters and white sand of Mancora or El Nuro to swim with sea turtles next to a stunning coastline. Hop on a boat to Isla Ballestas, to get a glimpse of sea lions, Hunboldt penguins, and colonies of Peruvian boobies. Take a surf lesson in Huanchaco and do a day trip to Chicama to see or ride the longest wave in the world. Immerse yourself in nature with the eco-tours of Tumbes. See the land of volcanoes and incredible canyons in Arequipa. Visit Ica, the oasis city in the desert pampas, or go sandboarding or on a dune buggy tour on the sand dunes of Huacachina, a desert oasis for the more adventurous. Venture out for a jungle excursion to Iquitos in the Amazon. See the spectacular desert-lined beaches of Paracas, or stay a night in Puno, the main base for seeing Lake Titicaca. Take the scenic train ride from Cusco to Titicaca. Head to the altitudes of the Malaga mountain pass drive at 14,000 feet, visit the magical cloud forests of Peru, or hike up to see the surreal scenery of the colorful Rainbow Mountain, or the Lares Valley, with its glacial lakes and hot spring, as well as being the center for the bright local artisan creations. And visit the ruins of Pisac in the sacred Valley of the Incas which is a must-see if you are going to Cusco. Explore the pristine Manu National Park with its 221 species of mammals and hundreds of bird species, as well as being home to indigenous tribes who still live in complete isolation. And for the more inquisitive explorer, venture out to see the fascinating ancient mummies of Peru, some of the oldest mummies in the world which can be seen by a tour or in the mummy museum, or to experience the ancient spiritual healing traditions by mysterious shamans who attract people from all over the world with their ceremonies and workshops using the sacred plants like the famous Ayahuasca. Do a culinary food tour in the capital of Lima, and take in some tastings of their renowned grape brandy in the city of Pisco. In Peru, you can enjoy ocean views and excellent fresh seafood like their famous ceviches in Lima and all over the coastal regions.

Peru, in western South America, extends along the Pacific Ocean. Colombia and Ecuador are to the north, Brazil and Bolivia to the east, and Chile to the south. Five-sixths the size of Alaska, Peru is divided by the Andes Mountains into three sharply differentiated zones. To the west is the coastline, much of it arid, extending 80 to 160 km inland. The mountain area, lofty plateaus, and deep valleys lie centrally. Beyond the mountains to the east is the heavily forested slope leading to the Amazonian plains.
The people of Peru speak three different languages: Spanish, Quechua (both of these are considered official languages) and Aymara, which although it is spoken widely in Peru, is not considered an official language as such.
Peru is typical of many South American countries in that it effectively operates a dual-currency system. Both the US dollar (dólares) and the Peruvian Nuevo Sol (soles) are in circulation and although the government prefers people to use soles, most sizeable purchases are made in dollars
USD 1 = 3.3 Soles (March 2019)
Peru’s three distinct regions have very different climates and weather conditions. In fact, they say that of the world’s 103 categorized ecological zones, scientists have identified 83 within Peru’s borders. That should give you an idea of the variety one may find. To start with, the seasons are flipped - December, January and February being Peru’s summer months and June, July and August being their winter. Summer and winter will mean different things in different parts of Peru.

The best time to go to Peru’s coast is their summer, and the best time to go to the mountains is September or May when you get a bit of both worlds. The nights aren’t as cold as in June or July but it still tends to be dry.
Typical Peruvian dishes are tasty and vary regionally. Seafood is, understandably, best on the coast, while the Inca delicacy - roast guinea pig - can be sampled in the highlands. Other dishes include: lomo saltado (chopped steak fried with onions); cebiche de corvina (white sea bass marinated in lemon, chilli and onions, often served cold with a boiled potato or yam); and sopa a la criolla (a lightly spiced noodle soup with beef, egg, milk and vegetables).
Peru was once part of the great Incan Empire and later the major vice-royalty of Spanish South America. It was conquered in 1531–1533 by Francisco Pizarro. On July 28, 1821, Peru proclaimed its independence, but the Spanish were not finally defeated until 1824. For a hundred years thereafter, revolutions were frequent.
The religion of Peru is an inheritance of the Spanish conquest, for this reason, it is a mainly Catholic country (more than 75% of the population). Moreover, recently many diverse churches have appeared, the Peruvian population is still very religious and there are also Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Adventists, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, and Hare Krishnas. Religious activity in Peru is important, and for many people, one of the "centers of energy" in the world is the city of the Cusco.
In Peru about 3000 typical fiestas are celebrated every year. The majority of those are organized to celebrate the day of a saint. A good example of this “cultural syncretism” is the Festivity of Corpus Christi in Cusco. This religious day, originally introduced by the Spaniards, was accepted by the Peruvian inhabitants as for them it had little to do with Catholicism, so much more with an old Inca ritual.
Especially in the traditional village high up in the mountains or in the jungle, there are several traditional celebrations, that related to ancient myths and/or important agricultural dates.
Peruvian music is almost entirely folk music, while its literature has many poets. Peruvian music is an amalgamation of sounds and styles drawing on Peru's Andean musical roots and Spanish musical influences. Native Peruvian music is dominated by the national instrument, the charango. The charango is a type of mandolin, and was invented in Bolivia by musicians imitating Spanish lutes and guitars. In the Canas and Titicaca regions, the charango is used in courtship rituals, symbolically invoking mermaids with the instrument to lure the woman to the male performers.
Peru has the greatest bio-diversity in the world, thanks to the presence of the Andes, Amazon and Pacific. There are 53 protected natural areas throughout the country. There are over 1,800 species of birds, hundreds of mammals including rare cats like jaguar and pumas, bears, and river dolphins; the coast is rich in marine life and a great place to see sea-lions and myriad seabirds.
The Highlands are famous for the presence of wild camelids alpacas and vicuñas which were hunted for wool and meat. In the Amazon, there is a diverse fauna including monkeys, jaguar, snakes, crocodiles, wild boars, macaws, parrots and hundreds of other kinds of birds. It is possible to watch caiman alligators and turtles in the rivers or fish for piraña.
The Pacific region has a lot of seabass, flounder, anchovies, tuna, crustacean and shellfish. It has also sharks, sperm whales and whales. Birds have an economic importance because of the concentrations of guano deposits that are used as fertilizer.
