GOOD TIME TO VISIT: any time – see individual destinations in Peru

One of the most popular destinations in South America, particularly with couples who travel on honeymoon to Peru, the country has long enchanted visitors with its spectacular Inca heritage, soaring mountain peaks and the charm of its people. Peru ’s population is a dynamic mix of Spanish and Indian descent and a large mestizo (mixed race) population.

Once you arrive in historic Lima your Peruvian adventure can take you anywhere. But this varied land is much more than just mountains and monuments. The Nazca desert lines are colossal animal designs created hundreds of years ago and are only visible from the air.

To the east are the mighty Andes and historic sites at every turn. And in this land of extremes lies the Amazon rainforest, home to isolated jungle communities and an amazing variety of plant and animal life. A must is a visit to the floating islands of Lake Titicaca in Peru’s high plain, the Altiplano, where the Uros have lived since before the Incas. One trip will not be enough in a country that overflows with variety and awe-inspiring sites. The Nuevo Mundo travel experts will help put together the ideal travel itinerary for your holiday or honeymoon to Peru.
