I have traveled with foreign tourists’ a lot within my country for more than 18 years, thus getting to know so well every single destination. Traveling throughout Peru would a great combination of history, archeology, mountains, Amazon and its wide wildlife, mystery such the Nazca Lines, the well know Peruvian cuisine, as well as good vacations on northern beaches for relaxation and surfing etc.
Usually for tourists Peru holidays here it takes around from 12 to 16 days to visit the main touristic attractions.
The best tourist circuit to enjoy the best of Peru, it goes like this:
Arrival in Lima, to do the city tour in order to see the pre-Inca Lima, later the colonial Lima such the presidential palace, the catacombs, those beautiful churches, as well is worth to visit the best museums such: Museo Larco, Museo de Arqueology y Anthropology, El Museo de Oro, Miraflores district with the largest mall with views of the Pacific ocean. Barranco is also another charming district next to Miraflores, is been referred to “The bohemian district”.
Apart from Cusco and Machu Picchu which is the hub of tourism in the country, if you have more to time to spend, I recommend to to see the Inca´s children sacrificed that are so well preserved and can be seen in museum in Arequipa town, where you can also enjoy the 2 day trip to the Colca Canyon. Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world (12,500 ft), and it has history to observe the floating island by the Uros people, the Taquile people who are the ancient descent of pre-Inca communities.
If you are a naturalist person, then inevitable to enjoy our Amazon tours, where you can do a 3 or 4 days tour in a lodge somewhere in the middle of the jungle, so exciting for me I have observed hundreds of types of birds, toucan, macaws, also the black caiman, monkeys, anteaters, etc.
So much to see in my country, have a smashing Peru holiday, come and enjoy its best!
