INTERESTS & ACTIVITIES

Hiking Ausangate

Peru’s diverse landscape means it’s variety is almost bewildering: you can visit beaches, desert, high mountains and tropical jungle all in one week!

The cultural history is varied and engaging too: The Inca are the most famous Peruvian culture and many people just want to see Machu Picchu. But there’s also the chance to learn about the Caral, Moche, Chan Chan, Nazca and many other cultures that thrived in Peru over the past 5,000 years.

While most people come for the wildlife, trekking and archaeology, there are many other things that make Peru a unique place.

One of the fastest growing tourism sectors is Ayahuasca & Wachuma tourism. Many people come to Peru to experience the hallucinogenic effects of wachuma (San Pedro) and ayahuasca.

If you’re more into caffeine and theobromine than hallucinogenics, Peru has exactly what you want! Peruvian coffee is increasingly popular around the globe, as is Peruvian chocolate. You can tour cacao or coffee farms and visit places to see how chocolate is made.
