Fall in love with Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is considered to be one of the world’s new 7 natural wonders and it’s not hard to see why! This stunning natural wonder is one of the main reasons many people visit Peru in the first place. Machu Picchu is the perfect spot for hikers and also great for families as there is a bus route to the top for tiny feet! If you struggle with heights then we highly recommend catching the bus as some of the hiking routes have loose rock and unsure footings.

If you are planning on visiting Machu Picchu, make sure to book your tickets in advance of your trip as there are a limited amount of tickets available.

Take in Lima’s culture

Lima (often referred to as The City of Kings) is Peru’s capital! If you are a fan of culture or simply just want to browse the shops and have a chilled day you will definitely find your fix in Lima! There are multiple local museums full of ancient history and fascinating shops, perfect for souvenirs.

Get lost in the beauty of the Amazon rainforest

The Amazon rainforest is not to be missed and is the perfect place for any backpacker.  It is also one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world. Get up close and personal with weird and wonderful wildlife and indulge your senses in one of the world’s most fascinating places! If you are planning on visiting this unmissable location it is definitely worth hiring a guide to make sure you get the most out of your experience.

Satisfy your cravings in Cusco

Cusco may not be Peru’s capital but it should definitely be on your list! This stunning city is full of hotels, restaurants and breathtaking architecture.  Cusco has been classed as a world heritage site and was also the original seat of power for the Inca empire. Explore the city, markets, sights and ruins.

Peru: a foodie’s paradise
