PERU

It is easy to be captivated by the thought of a holiday in Peru, exploring the ruins of Machu Picchu and navigating the waters of Lake Titicaca. While the popular sites are deservedly Peru’s most famous tourist attractions, the country also boasts fine beaches, quaint fishing villages, epic hiking and walking trails, and the chance to experience a real Amazon adventure. Most first-time visitors to Peru come to walk the Inca Trail, a famous (typically four-day) hike to the ‘Lost City of the Incas’, Machu Picchu. However, a little-known fact about Peru is that about 60 percent of the country is covered by thick tropical rainforest. The Peruvian Amazon is lush and steamy, and home to an incredible amount of biodiversity, from large tropical flowers to howler monkeys and majestic jaguars.

The two main entry-points, accessible by air, for a holiday in the Peruvian Amazon are Iquitos and Puerto Maldonado. From these cities, tours to isolated and eco-friendly jungle cabins can easily be arranged. There are many more wonderful sights in Peru, including the mysterious Nazca Lines, the impressive Colca Canyon, the warm sands and surf of Manorca and the wonderful wildlife of the Ballestas Islands. Peru’s capital, Lima, is a little rundown but nevertheless boasts some fine Spanish-colonial architecture and a restaurant scene of international repute.
