Destinations and Programs

Peru, for its strategic location in the central Andes, is one of the most varied geographical regions of the world and it is one of the five cradles of civilization, so it is a privileged destination for tourism and one of the most attractive investment markets. We are proud to have 84 of the 104 life zones in the world.
Considered by the World Resources Institute in the select group of eight countries "mega-diverse", not only that, the country is full of evidence of their long cultural evolution, the transition from hunting and gathering societies to producing societies that of llama and alpaca herds as well as agriculturalists was possible due to the Peruvian peoples' abilities to learn how to create complex organizations.

Heir to ancient cultures and a rich colonial tradition, Peru is also a magical enclave that houses one of the greatest biodiversity in the world: a melting pot of different cultures that coexist in its effort to forge a promise of a better tomorrow. Today we are glad to share our land, traditions and well-known hospitality with our guest; whether it be, in a modern and rushing metropolis like Lima, a frontier Amazonian town, in the open High platoon of Puno or in the historical capital of the Andes the Imperial Cusco.

Cusco

More than a city, Cusco is a cultural space. It is the symbol of the union of the cultures and races, and becoming the most important travel destination in Latin America. In order to know the real Cusco it is necessary to walk through its markets, plazas... in order to participate in the daily life of this magical town. Cusco is the starting point for those planning to visit the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary.

Arequipa

Arequipa is the second largest city in Peru.It is a very traditional and sometimes monastic town which has preserved its colonial character.You will find churches and monasteries such as Santa Catalina, which is the oldest of Peru. It is alsothe region where we visit the Colca Canyon, the second deepest canyon in the world.

Lima

Lima is known as the “City of Kings”, for the quality of its monumental architecture which can be best appreciated today by visiting its baroque and renaissance churches, mansions and colonial palaces, as well as its universities and archbishop’s palace. Lima as a cosmopolitan city offers you many archaeological and natural attractions, excellent history museums and art galleries.......

Nazca Lines

In the Nazca Desert of western Peru are etched lines and figures from approximately 2,000 years ago drawn on the desert soil. These lines, therefore, are the most intriguing of the many remnants of civilizations that prospered along the Pacific Coast for thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans. Just flying over this large Pampa and following the lengthy lines that have pointed to the stars since they were drawn, we can only speculate on the creativity that inspired the figures of the ancient Peruvians. You’ll find the Coast a fascinating contrast to the Highlands and the Jungle.

Puno

It is estimated that this part of the Altiplano is the centre of origin of the cultivated potato. “El Collao” was the territory of the ancient Tiwanaku culture in the mid-first millennium. The region was conquered by the Inca Empire in the fifteenth century. During colonial times it was an important commercial area. In the late eighteenth century it was an important headquarters for the Rebellion of Tupac Amaru II in two phases since the search for the independence of Peru.
