Safety in Peru - Local street life in a village in the Andes of Peru, South America

Machu Picchu, the Amazon Basin & Fab Peru Holidays

Machu Picchu is surely the high-point of a Peru holiday, and with good reason. It is as magnificent as the legends and mysteries that surround it. The gateway to Machu Picchu is the ancient Inca capital of Cusco and the surrounding Sacred Valley, which retain their indigenous character. On the street, Quechua women in bowler hats sell pan chuta, the circular anise-flavored bread of the Andes, and at traditional craft markets colorful tapestries and alpaca wool accessories delight travelers.

Most visitors to Peru have about two week’s vacation time, which makes tailoring an itinerary and making arrangements a challenge. Unless you engage Enchanting Travels, whose local experts ensure you’re covered every step of the way. After all even the American explorer Hiram Bingham, credited with rediscovering Machu Picchu, hired a local to lead him there.

From Cusco the luxurious Belmond Andean Explorer train crosses to Arequipa via Lake Titicaca, where the Uro people have built a village of floating reed islands. And then there’s the vast Amazon Basin. Catch pink dolphins swimming or experience the rainforest from suspension bridges, canopy walks, and boat cruises on the mighty river. Unlike Cusco, Peru’s capital Lima is a very Spanish city, filled with magnificent colonial buildings and churches, and a great dining scene. Make sure you sample pisco sour cocktails, the more rustic corn beer chicha de jora, or the famous carbonated beverage Inca Kola, because they are so much a part of Peruvian identity.
