Travel to Peru

ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

Peru offers the most impressive mountain vistas in all of South America, as well as remnants of its Inca culture and Spanish colonial history.

Major points-of-interest include the sleek and modern, yet historically preserved capital city of Lima; the fascinating city of Cuzco, the former capital of the Inca Empire, and the nearby ruins at Machu Picchu; interesting national parks; Lake Titicaca, the Amazon Rainforest and Andean mountain tours.


CONVENTION AND VISITOR BUREAUS:
GENERAL INTEREST:
  • Electricity: 220V, 60Hz
  • Times to Travel: Peru has two very distinct seasons: wet and dry. The driest months are May through October; November through April is the rainy season.

    The country's physical characteristics play a large part in determining the best travel times. The coast is best visited around January and the mountains and jungles are at their peak after the rains, from May till September.

    However, the country's many attractions and beautiful scenery make travel to Peru optimal (and worth the journey) at anytime of the year.
