Drawing visitors from all over the world to admire the colourful Andes Mountains and experience the Incan ruins and carved peaks of Machu Picchu, Peru is a South American delight.
Whilst the diverse spectrum of landscapes are a sole reason to travel to Peru, it’s so much more with endless festivities, glorious gastronomy, and multiculturalism. Peruvians are ingenious and their traditional clothing is so colourful, you’ll always be smiling in this lively country.
Being coastal, Peru also boasts fabulous beaches with some of the best surfing in the world. Whether you’re exploring mountains, diverse cities, or surf hotspots, your tastebuds will be running wild for pisco sours, Peru’s exclusive cocktail, fresh ceviche, raw fish with citrus juices, and coy, guinea pig meat - a surprisingly delicious delicacy!
A trip wouldn’t be complete without tasting these treats and also experiencing the town of Cuzco, the mysterious Machu Picchu, and the stunning Lake Titicaca.
It’s fair to say that Peru offers a mix of everything that the continent is known for whilst bursting with joy and beauty!
If you’re heading to Peru for Machu Picchu and hiking, you’ll want to travel during winter (May - September) as it’s usually dry.
On the other hand, it’s recommended to visit Peru’s capital city and surrounding towns exclusively in summer (March - May) to catch the warm weather and beautiful sunshine.
