Taquile Island: Around 13,700ft above sea level, Taquile is an ancient jewel in the waters of Lake Titicaca - the local Indians speak in whispers and, apart from a few solar electric panels, there's only llama power.
Nazca: Famous for the ancient geometric and animal designs etched into the surrounding desert plateau, Nazca is the gateway to many more mysterious pre-Inca sites and ceremonial centers.
Máncora Beach: Big waves and un-crowded beaches. One of Peru's most popular surfing haven, Máncora is a rustic but comfortable stopover when travelling on the north coast - equipment can be hired locally.
Machu Pichu: 7,000 feet above sea level and nestled on a small hilltop between the Andean Mountain Range, the majestic city soars above the Urabamba Valley below. The Incan built structure has been deemed the “Lost Cities”, unknown until its relatively recent discovery in 1911.
Archaeologists estimate that approximately 1200 people could have lived in the area, though many theorize it was most likely a retreat for Incan rulers. Due to it’s isolation from the rest of Peru, living in the area full time would require traveling great distances just to reach the nearest village.
Lima is the capital and largest city of Peru. It is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín rivers, on a coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It forms a contiguous urban area with the seaport of Callao.
Iquitos: Iquitos is an ideal place for the eco-travelers and those that they want to experience travel into the Amazonian Jungle. For the adventurous the Amazon gives the traveler an intimate experience into the parks and natural reserves, which are full of flora / fauna along with the many species of birds, animals and villages which inhabit the jungle. The Amazon is one of the greatest biodiversity zones in the world.
Inca Trail: The Inca Trail, one of the famous trekking trails in North America. The trail is one of many hiking trails that snake across the Peruvian Andes, but it leads to the spectacular ruins of Machu Picchu. This trek draws trekkers from around the world and reservation / permits are required.
Colca Canyon: Spectacular views and one of the few canyons in the world with a 1km drop from the edge of the cliff to the bottom of the river. On a clear day, Colca boasts some of Peru's finest Andean scenery and is the most reliable place for wild condor spotting.
