Peru is comprised of three major regions: the coast, Andean highlands, and Amazon rainforest.

The city of Cuzco is higher in altitude (11,200 feet above sea level) than Machu Picchu (8,040 feet above sea level).

Most North American travelers visit Peru between May and November to experience Peru’s ancient archaeological sites, legendary wildlife and adventure experiences.

Caral, four hours north of Lima, is the oldest city in the Americas and serves as the third oldest civilization in the world.

Peru is known internationally for its great cuisine – the country has been recognized by the World Travel Awards as South America’s leading culinary destination for several years.
