In South America, south of Ecuador, west of Brazil along the Pacific Coast of the South American continent.

Ancient civilizations have left their marks, relics and treasures for us to discover and admire. The Incas are most famous ancient peoples of Peru. Lima the capital started out in pre Inca times. Colonized by the Spanish who left their cultures to dominate.

Apart from spending a little time in Lima, most visitors head straight out into the Andes, probably to Machu Picchu for the magical sunrise experiences. The sacred valley is the most famous and Cusco it's capital is at 3,400 metres, you will need to acclimatize.

Relatively undiscovered, unsophisticated in the rural areas and thus very attractive to most western city dwellers. You can get to the Amazon River and many other exotic trips are available from local operators.
