South America on a Shoestring - Peru (Chapter)
This is the Peru chapter from Lonely Planet’s South America on a Shoestring guidebook.
Peru is one of South America’s top picks for adventurous travelers. You can chase perfect waves off a sunny Pacific beach, ending at the cloud-topping Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Or groove to Afro-Peruvian beats, explore remote ruins in the north and ride a slow boat down the Amazon.
- trek a breathless rite of passage to awe-inspiring ancient Inca ruins hidden in cloud forest at Machu Picchu
- pound colonial Andean cobblestone streets of Cuzco, take in historical museums and trek humbling Inca hillsides
- explore the historical city of Arequipa, surrounded by imposing volcanoes and sunken canyons
- restaurants & accommodation
