Find your Travel Style

By Alonso Cueto, Ph.D.

Are you a foodie, nature lover, or armchair historian? No matter what your passion, Peru has something for you. Use our Peru for Less Travel Style Guide to help you find destinations and activities that match your interests.

Travel Style

Culture / History

Peru is a wonderland of culture and history. There are so many different worlds within the boundaries of just one country. No other country in Latin America has been blessed with so many different sites and environments. Cusco and Machu Picchu are the obvious places to start. But don’t stop there, because you’ll be missing out on a lot. Go to Lima to see the wonderful mix of America, Europe, Asia, and Africa that make up modern Peru. A tour to Puno and Lake Titicaca will transport you to the oldest Andes with vibrant festivals that celebrate Quechua and Aymara roots. Food lovers, bring your appetite to Peru. As you’ll soon discover, no matter where you go, food opens the widest window into Peruvian culture. It is an example of how people from all over the world came here bringing their best to make such a rich and beautiful place.

With no shortage of mountains, jungles, deserts, and beaches, Peru was made for travelers in pursuit of thrills. You can go from the great rivers of the jungle to the highest peaks covered with snow. Choose from trekking or horseback riding in the Andes, zip lining in the Amazon or the Sacred Valley, whitewater rafting on the Urubamba River or in the Colca Canyon. Try your hand at sand boarding in Pisco and Ica, parasailing in Lima, paddle boarding or kayaking on a rainforest river, kitesurfing in Paracas, or surfing on the beaches of Mancora in northern Peru. Don’t forget to pause, catch your breath, and let the beauty of Peru’s adventure hot spots sweep you of your feet.

Get your nature fix in each of Peru’s three major regions -- coast, mountains, and jungle. South of Lima, the Paracas National Reserve protects a photogenic colony of sea lions and more than 100 species of seabirds. You will never forget a visit fo the sea lions in their natural environment, just a few miles away from the coast. In the mountains, the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary preserves not just the historic Inca ruins, but also rare flora and fauna. Visit the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo hotel’s private reserve to see this biodiversity in person. In the southeastern jungle, the Manu Biosphere and the Tambopata National Reserve are a hot spot of ecotourism in Peru. Go to see nature, stay to experience the magic allure of the rainforest.

City Scenes

Put on your urban explorer hat, because Peru has fascinating cities bursting with intrigue and cosmopolitan flair. Lima, Cusco, Arequipa, Trujillo, Iquitos -- each has a character all its own. The oldest continuously inhabited city in South America? That’s the great stone city of Cusco. A few days in the former capital of the Inca Empire will convince you that it is one of the world’s most powerful and sensual cities. Whatever you do, make time to visit Lima. Diverse, energetic and vibrant, the Peruvian capital is home to an enchanting array of museums, restaurants, plazas, and gorgeous coastal attractions waiting to be discovered. The majestic view of the Pacific Ocean with its long white waves, its stone docks and the seagulls flying around will always be with you.

Peru is the place to go to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. But beyond the famous trail, there are paths less beaten. Salkantay, Lares, Choquequirao, and Vilcabamba — these appeal to true adventurers. Outside of Cusco, the possibilities are equally endless. The Colca Canyon trek snakes along ancient terraced valleys shadowed by volcanoes. Further north, Huaraz, “trekking capital of Peru,” is basecamp for ascents to the icy 22,204-foot peak of Huascaran in the Cordillera Blanca.

With Peru for Less, you get more than just a tour package. You get a personalized experience from start to finish.

We started in 1998 with two questions: What if travelers were an end in themselves? What if the entire marketing budget went into traveler satisfaction?

And we've built itineraries to make the most out of precious vacation days.
