Peru land of the Incas
Peru tours inevitably evoke images of Machu Picchu and the Inca Empire, the country is also riddled with archaeological sites which are a legacy of even more ancient times. Located on the central West coast of South America, Peru is divided into three main regions - a narrow desert belt on the coast to the West, the wide Andean mountain range in the center and the Amazon River basin to the East. Travel within Peru is modern and convenient. A valid passport is usually all that is required to enter the country.
Entertainment and live music are easy to find everywhere on a Peru tour. Clubs with contemporary Latin or Coastal criolla-style music are popular in Lima. Restaurants and hotels in Cuzco and other cities offer floor shows with folk music and dancers. Or visit a "Peña", a lively club with colorful performances and audience participation! Peru tours aim for nature and ecology as major priorities. The Peruvian Amazon has been named one of the world's ten "biodiversity hot spots" with an unusually high number of flora and fauna species. There are nine national parks, seven national reserves, three national and historical sanctuaries, two reserve zones and an increasing number of forest reserves, preserving the precious natural environment for future generations.
