Travel Tips & Advice for Peru

Peru Activities

Located in the heart of the Andes, Peru offers a wide range of hiking options; head to Colca Canyon, one of the world’s deepest canyons, marvel at the dramatic scenery of Cordillera Huayhuash or hike the famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Stretch your legs in a different way, sand boarding in the Huacachina Desert or surfing the waters of Mancora. Sample wine at the vineyards of Lunahuana, test your bargaining skills at the Pisac markets or take to the air and fly over the mysterious Nazca Lines.

Peru Food & Drink

Travel to Peru and you’ll discover that the cuisine is varied – from meat and seafood dishes, to meals catering for vegetarians. High end restaurants and street food stalls serve anticuchos, beef hearts on a skewer, ceviche is found all along the coast, and papa rellena, a potato stuffed with vegetables and fried is a veggie-friendly snack. The country’s large Chinese immigration population has led to fusion Peruvian-Chinese cuisine, including the stir-fry-style lomo saltado, while cuy, or guinea pig, is a ‘must try’. For a typical Peruvian tipple, you can’t go wrong with the traditional piso sour.

Peru Attractions

One of the new Seven Wonders of the World and Peru’s number one tourist attraction, Machu Picchu is undoubtedly a ‘must visit’. Spend time in former capital of the Incan Empire, Cusco, admiring the colonial architecture and seeing Cusco Cathedral’s replica of ‘The Last Supper’ or visit more ruins at the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Explore the Amazon Rainforest, pick up pink salt on a tour of the Maras salt mines and take a boat to the floating Uros Islands, made entirely from totora reeds, on Lake Titicaca.
