Enjoy the Magical Holiday Moments at Peru

Peru, a land with a mystical touch, is one of the great destinations of the world that has a lot to present to its visitors. The country has preserved its history and culture in its quaint towns and villages which offer an idyllic escape from the bustling city life. 

History
The heart of Inca Empire, Peru is a blend of diverse indigenous cultures. Qosco, once the richest city in all Americas, was the capital of the Incan Empire. The history of Peru is marked by wars of succession of Inca Empire which were later followed by Spanish rule. 

Popular Places and Attractions
Peru has something for everyone. There are museums, lakes, popular squares, churches, great pieces of architecture, all packed into one. Lake Titicaca, the highest commercially navigable lake, is nothing less than a paradise. Spending a night at the calm waters is a treat to the human eyes. The place is also known for its exotic islands.

Cuzco, a small mystical city, is a relief from the hustle and bustle of urban cities. One must visit the majestic cathedral, The Museum of Religious Art, the Temple of San Blas and the Church of LaMerced for a perfect glimpse of Peru architecture.

Other attractions include Plaza de Armas, a popular Cuzco square, Church of San Francisco, Museo de la Nacion, Pizco (fishing village), Nazca (desert town), Machu Picchu, Santa Catalina Monastery, etc. One can have a real glimpse of the traditional Peruvian culture at all these places.

Getting Around in Peru
For travelling inside the cities, buses and taxis are the most convenient modes of transportation. Visitors can also go by train as Peru is well connected by trains. To access remote forest areas or lakes, boat and planes may also be used. Combis, colectivos and micros are other popular means of travelling intra-city.

Places for Entertainment
Food and shopping in Peru is fun. Peru is largely a fishing nation and hence fish is a significant part of their food. You would virtually find every Peruvian dish filled with potatoes, rice, pork, and of course fish. The lip smacking Comida Criolla, spicy Adobo de Cerdo and Carapulca are definitely worth a try in Peru.

Spending a night dancing at Peru discos is a great idea. One can have a look at their traditional dances such as El Tondero, La Marinera, etc in rural regions.

The fascinating country of Peru offers its visitors unparalleled accommodation options that can cater to the various needs. From four star hotels to luxurious hotels, from camp sites, budget hotels to youth hostels, bed and breakfast, guest house and motels, Peru accommodation options are comfortable and clean.
