PERU: Land of the Incas

Peru has much to offer, the diversity of its landscape begins in the desert of the coast, sprinkled by beautiful valleys and excellent beaches, to the spectacular mountain range of the Andes, with its huge variety of ecosystems and colonial legacy. All these exciting treasures, in addition to the famous Peruvian hospitality will enable you to live an unforgettable experience in “The Land of the Incas”.
When you travel to Peru, interested in its archaeology, a great place to start is the National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History, located in the colorful Plaza Bolivar in the district of Pueblo Libre. It will orient you to the wealth of Peru's fascinating archeological past, while artfully displaying the variety of its skillfully crafted jewelry, ceramics and textiles. Just outside the museum, you can also enjoy some of Lima's finest colonial architecture and any one of a number of delightful local restaurants.
Peru’s geography is among the most dramatic and awe-inspiring on earth. Having three distinct regions - the coastal plains, the Andean highlands, and the Amazon jungle - it is as varied as it is spectacular.
The dry coastal plains are home to most of Peru’s archaeological sites, including the Nazca lines in the south and the tomb of the Lord of Sipán in the north.
Peru’s varied highlands include the snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Blanca, the lush high jungle regions near Machu Picchu and elsewhere, and the extraordinary altiplano (high plains) between Cuzco and Lake Titicaca.
Peru’s vast jungle region, covering over half the country’s total land surface, is home to a biodiversity matched in few places on earth and eco-tourism at its best.
