  Travel Info:


























Few travel destinations in the world equal Peru.

Nowhere else, for example, may one better appreciate the beauty, grandeur and mystery of lost civilizations than at ancient Machu Picchu. There is no more intriguing archaeological riddle than the great ground drawings on the desert floor at Nazca.

In Peru one may cruise the Amazon at Iquitos, surf the Pacific off capital Lima, and visit the ancient Inca capital Cuzco in the high Andes.

Dining can be very exotic throughout Peru, and shopping equally so at a wide range of Indian markets and modern malls in major cities.

Also increasingly popular are sidetrips to the astonishing new mystery sites in the desert at Sipan, Tucume and Chan Chan.
