Peru
Explore Peru

Peru is an amazing country, which has a charm and elegance that surprises most visitors.  The Incas were a noble and regal group whose stone masonry, agriculture, and general cultural development were highly advanced.  The stone work on the Incan temples, fortresses, and cities are amazing to behold.  Impressively, Lima, Peru was the capital of the Spanish South American colonization for almost 300 years. As a result, it has a myriad of glorious Spanish architecture apparent in its palaces, cathedrals, plazas and governmental buildings. 

Machu Picchu, the ancient mountaintop city, is one of the Wonders of the World.  Additionally, Cusco, Sacsayhuaman, and the Sacred Valley all offer many vivid reminders of the Incan mastery of stone; in fact, so much so that the Spanish often built their buildings on the Incan foundations.  Even to this day, many villages including Cusco feature streets that were made by the Incans.  But there are many other reasons to visit Peru.  Lima has a rich history and many fascinating museums.  You can take a cruise on the Amazon Headwaters in what looks like a luxury version of Humphrey Bogart’s, African Queen.  During the cruise, you have opportunities to go swimming and fish for piranhas (but be careful not to combine the two events!)  The Amazon Valley has quality Eco-Lodges where you can commune with nature.  You can fly over the Nazca Lines, giant etchings in the desert that can only be fully grasped from the air (perhaps carved for the gods to see).  The Islas Ballestas are a small set of islands that are so full of sea lions, birds, and other creatures that it has been called the “Little Galapagos.”  You can also visit Lake Titicaca, which is the highest elevation fresh water lake in the world.  It has very unusual floating islands, made of reeds that literally float on the top of the lake, but are strong enough that people live on them.  There is much, much more. Come to Peru and experience this amazing wonderland.
