Every corner of our planet holds its own allure, but Peru manages to captivate and rise above the rest. This country is brimming with an abundance of natural wonders and cultural treasures that have fascinated people for centuries and continue to do so today. With countless reasons to visit, here are 7 compelling motives to explore Peru!

Unveil Ancient Ruins and Culture

Peru offers a wealth of intriguing history within easy reach of any traveler. Whether it’s strolling through museums, meandering through towns and villages, or embarking on hikes to hidden Incan ruins, you will be immersed in a palpable sense of history and cultural influence. The ancient Incan ruins are renowned for their ethereal beauty and enigmatic allure. Among the most awe-inspiring sites are the Sacred Valley and the majestic Machu Picchu, best experienced by trekking the Inca Trail. Peru’s historical tapestry extends beyond Incan remnants. In the north, the city of Chan Chan reveals the vestiges of ancient civilizations, while the southern region boasts fascinating evidence of antiquated cultures at Lake Titicaca, in the city of Puno, and through the enigmatic Nazca Lines.

Embrace the People

Interacting with new cultures and meeting people from different walks of life is always enriching, but the people of Peru elevate this experience to new heights. Many Peruvians maintain a direct connection to their Incan ancestors, underscoring the importance of preserving Quechuan culture for Peru’s past. Peruvians are often hardworking, polite, peaceful, helpful, and genuinely interested in their visitors’ experiences. Many have never ventured beyond their own country, let alone their cities or villages. Engaging in conversations and sharing stories with them provides a unique learning opportunity about the country and its vibrant culture.

Delight in Artisan Crafts

Where else can you encounter Peruvian history, culture, art, and exceptional craftsmanship all in one place? The answer lies within their exquisite handcrafts. Textiles stand out as some of the most renowned Peruvian handcrafts. Witness skilled women weaving intricate patterns into decorative wall hangings, scarves, sweaters, and a myriad of other textiles. Peru’s artisan crafts encompass a wide range, including instruments, wood carvings, canvas paintings, jewelry, and more. Not only do these crafts make for cherished souvenirs and mementos, but purchasing them also supports traditional practices and provides livelihood opportunities for local families.

Embrace the Natural Diversity

Peru boasts an astonishing 28 distinct climates, creating a rich tapestry of ecosystems and natural wonders within one country. Experience the juxtaposition of snow-capped Andean peaks and the exhilaration of sandboarding in the desert oasis of Huacachina. Marvel at penguins on the Ballestas Islands near the dry and arid town of Paracas, then find serenity while peacefully rowing along the rivers of the Amazonian jungle. Scale mountain summits in the Andes or descend into the world’s deepest canyons, the Colca and Cotahuasi Canyons. The combinations are endless, allowing for budget-friendly trips that showcase Peru’s incredible natural diversity.

Indulge in Culinary Delights

Peru is renowned for having one of the finest cuisines in South America. With a melting pot of ethnic influences and a climatic range of 28 climates, each city offers a unique culinary experience. Don’t miss out on iconic dishes like Lomo Saltado (beef stir-fry), Ceviche Mixto (mixed seafood marinated in lime juice), Empanadas (mini pies filled with chicken, meat, or vegetables), Tiradito (Peruvian sashimi in lime juice), Butifarra (meat and salad roll), and Chicharrón (fried pork skin with meat). For the adventurous, try the Andean delicacy of guinea pig meat, known for its juiciness and tenderness. Peruvian cuisine is often spicy and hearty, a delicious journey for the taste buds.

Enjoy Stunning Beaches

Peru is renowned for its breathtaking beaches, making it a true paradise for surfers. Head south of Lima, the capital, to discover top surfing spots such as Herradura, Costa Verde, and Punta Rocas. For a sun-soaked getaway, explore popular beaches like El Silencio, Punta Sal, Punta Hermosa, Pucusana, and Santa María, where you can bask in the warm sand and crystal-clear waters.

Savor Exquisite Drinks

Great food deserves great drinks, and Peru knows how to deliver. Whether you’re captivated by the bubblegum flavor of Inca Kola or prefer the array of robust beers, Peruvian beverages will leave you craving more. Sample the famous wines from the Ica region, sip on pisco sours (a sweet and tangy cocktail made with egg whites), indulge in emoliente (a traditional herbal infusion), and savor coca tea, known for its ability to alleviate altitude sickness. Coca-Cola enthusiasts will be delighted to taste the best Coca-Cola in the world, sweetened with real sugar.
