Nothing says, "Welcome to South America," like the vast lands of Peru; the three main regions are the highlands, the coast and the rainforest. Peru is the site of many ancient Andean civilizations with the most famous landmark being Machu Picchu, an Incan citadel nestled high up in the mountains.
In addition to vast rural life, the capital city of Lima is buzzing with activity. Looking over the Pacific Ocean, Lima has beaches, a mixture of colonial architecture, parks and many museums. This vast country translates to paradise for the active traveler and a vibrant culture waiting to be explored. see moresee less
