Peru is a land of diversity. From the reaches of the Andes Mountains to the vibrancy of the rainforest, a trip throughPeru is sure to be the time of your life.
While any trip can be tailored to your interests, one of the best places to start is the Amazon. The best rainforest tours are offered on boats, which take guests through the trees on the ample waterways. Not only are the boats comfortably outfitted for leisure cruises, but the rainforest itself is full of attractions. Pink river dolphins may jump alongside the boat, and monkeys are sure to squawk a greeting from the trees that line the water.
From here, it makes sense to go up. The Andes Mountains offer soaring peaks that are still surprisingly accessible. Nestled unexpectedly high in the mountains, Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America. Lake Titicaca is regarded as the birthplace of the Incas, but to truly appreciate the wonder of this ancient society, a visit to Machu Picchu is necessary. This historical city sits among the peaks, boasting impressive views and preserved ruins.
Machu Picchu is the most popular attraction, but it is certainly not the only one. For a deeper look at Incan culture, be sure to visit Cuzco. This city was the heart of the Incan civilization. Today, it serves as a home base for other Peruvian adventures to Urubamba, the Inca Trail and more.
In addition to the rainforest and mountains, there is also a desert. A desert may not seem like a great destination, but the Peruvian desert is distinctive. In particular, Nazca is an ancient marvel. The ruins are just the start. Guests can also see the Nazca Lines. These ancient drawings cut into the desert, spanning impressive distances that are only visible from a height.
The country also has coastal regions. One of the best places to appreciate coastal living is in Lima. Perched on the Pacific Ocean, Lima relies heavily on its scenic coastline. In addition to the recreational opportunities, Peruvian food also thrives in Lima. Seafood is especially decadent there since Peruvian waters are flush with a multitude of fish.
A trip through this South American country is worth your while. A visit to La Costanera Restaurant is a good place to start. This Peruvian restaurant is located in Montara Beach. Not only does it offer excellent views of the Pacific Ocean, but it also has the best Peruvian flavors in North America. Get your taste of South America by making a reservation for dinner today.
