Peru


Peru is a country of incredible diversity in a variety of categories: archaeological, with such important civilizations as the Incan, Mochica; cultural, boasting numerous living cultures, like the Aymara, Quechua, and untold Amazonian ethnicities; and natural, marked by three distinct regions – the arid coast, contrasted against the immensity of the Pacific Ocean, the highlands of the towering Andes Mountains, and the lush Amazon Rainforest, a sea of everlasting green stretching across the continent to touch the Atlantic coastline. Peru is located in the central and western parts of South America facing the Pacific Ocean on the West.

Machu Picchu the world heritage site being one of the highlights of Peru remains a focal point for many travelers, definitely, there is much more Peru has to offer, filled with sites that exhibit the mighty empire’s expertise as builders, a classic example being Machu Picchu. For the first-timer, this Incan citadel might be the temptation, but Peru has a lot to offer with a varied landscape. Tall Andes mountains looking down at rainforest and silent streams of the Amazon showcasing the different colors and textures of the country. Lima awaits you to surprise with the food culture, on the other hand, the ancient capital of Cusco will thrill you with the adventurous activities, walk on the streets of Arequipa paved with cobblestone, the second deepest canyon at the Colca Valley will thrill you and taste some local authentic experience at the homestays of Amantani Islands. Be ready to immerse yourself into Peruvian culture.

The weather in Peru varies in both the season of the year and on the region to which you are traveling. Generally speaking, May through October is the dry season; November through April is the rainy season, and the wettest months are January through April. The weather and climate zones in Peru are markedly different among its three vastly different regions. The coast is predominantly arid and mild, the Andean region is temperate to cold, and the eastern lowlands are tropically warm and humid.
