There are too many places and things to see in Peru to be covered in one trip. The ancient Incas left numerous ruins and hidden treasures that you could spend years just following the history of their culture. You would be unable to leave without seeing some of the rain forest or famous beaches. Orchids grow naturally here and Jaguars still roam in the forest. The mountains have a beauty all alone and house some of the best Incan ruins.
Machu Picchu is amongst the most famous ruins in the world but the history goes much farther back than the Incas. Some of the first civilizations outside of Africa appeared to begin in this area. This rugged area still calls the outdoors lovers to play and mountain climbing, cycling, surfing, and rafting are popular in the country. Lima is the most populated area in Peru and modern hotels and food can be found here.
The Nazca Desert in southern Peru is home to some of the most interesting discoveries of Ancient Central American cultures, the Nazca Lines.
Of the many ruins and remains of the Inca Empire only one stands out as truly magnificent. Located some 8,000 feet above sea level, Machu Picchu is by far the most complete example of Inca ingenuity and style and has a beauty that transcends time.
