Lima

Located in western South America, Peru borders the South Pacific Ocean and is well known for its traditional views and Incan heritage. Expect to marvel in a variety of ecological layers, climates, lifestyles and regions with spectacular natural landscapes and views. If you’re feeling brave, you can even choose to spend a night in a hotel that hangs 1,300 ft above ground. Gaining popularity as a bucket list stay for the adrenaline seeker, the Skylodge Adventure Suites offer a picturesque view where you either hike or zipline to get to your room. Many visitors head to Cuzco or Arequipa, Lima, which is the country’s capital. Wherever you plan to dedicate the most time, organization and preparation is suggested for a smooth quest. With an ever-increasing amount of tourists, tours and hotels are experiencing bookings quicker than other locations.

Machu Pichu stands apart in Peruvian history as one of the only Inca cities that were never found by Spaniards  as they captured and colonized the rest of the Empire. Set high up in the Andes Mountains, above the Urubamba River valley, it’s renowned for its polished dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks without the use of mortar, fascinating buildings and panoramic views. Its original use remains a mystery, but it surely is not a site to miss.

Peru is where the Amazon gets its start in life. In Carhuasanta, the jungle tangles its way down the Andes and into the Amazon basin on the other side.

Interesting facts

-Cuy (guinea pig) is Peru’s most notorious taste experience. It is most easily found in highland towns like Cusco and the Urubamba valley. Potatoes have been cultivated in the Andes for 10,000 years and even today, there are 3,800 different types to try!

-Surf Sport include:

  Villa – reef break

  Playa Waikiki – beach break

  San Bartolo – beach break

Good to know

-Taxi drivers do not expect a tip when providing their services. When dining out, a 10% tip (if not already added) is suffice. Be wary when receiving what seems like kind, generous gestures from strangers. If a local offers to show you the way he may expect a tip at the end.

-Try to restrain from taking photos without permission of general folks doing their day-to-day operations.

Culture and Etiquette in Peru

There is no formal dress code required when visiting Peru, but casual conservative is always a good choice.  There are no strict taboos or religious attire mandatory, however you will notice Peruvians wearing traditional woven fabrics.
