Peru

Peru’s very name conjures up images of a magical world lost to time, where the thin mountain air preserves the archaeological and cultural vestiges of a lost empire. Mythical Machu Picchu, perched against a spectacular Andean backdrop rivals the ancient Incan capital of Cuzco, South America’s oldest inhabited city. The native way of life remains alive in mountain markets—where Quechua-speakers trade beautifully dyed alpaca sweaters, potatoes, spices and ceramics—or in the manmade reed islands of Titicaca, that vast lake between the altiplano and the Andes from which the sun god’s children immerged to found the Inca Empire. Wonder at the mysterious Nazca lines, visible only from the sky; ride down the great river in the tropical Amazon Basin; or try the Pacific Coast’s legendary surf spots. Whether in Lima’s Baroque architecture and excellent museums, the soaring peaks of the Cordillera Blanca or the stretching coastal deserts, discover the variety of this legendary home of El Dorado.
