Enjoy the Diversity of Peru

The Incan city of Machu Picchu high up in the Andes is not Peru’s only attraction. Other adventures here include sailing down the Amazon River…hiking through tropical rainforest…and visiting Lake Titicaca--so big that there are small floating islands within its great expanse. You should also take a stroll through the preserved Spanish colonial city of Arequipa (the “White City”), found in a land of volcanoes, hot springs, canyons and deserts. The diversity and intensity of the landscape here will take your breath away. The city of Cuzco is the center of Quechua indigenous culture in the Andes and is also worth a visit.
