With the diverse variety of options, choosing a specific destination for your vacation can be challenging.

From the various sights to the rich history of Lima, to the magical coastlines of Ballestas Islands and the ever so mysterious Nazca lines, Peru offers it all.

This obviously makes it hard to fit all the things you want to within your time here.

We shed light on some general tips you can use to turn your vacation into an unforgettable experience:

How Much Time Do You Have?

Even though before going on any sort of vacation you need to have a clear idea of the number of days you have on your hands. But it is especially important for Peru.

Peru is roughly the same size as Alaska and it may be near to impossible visiting the whole country in a single visit. Most tourists come down to visit Machu Picchu and some come solely for the Inca Trail hiking experience.

Try Travelling Off-Season

The busiest time to visit Peru is between June and August. Try planning it out around this period. Also, the rainy season in Machu Picchu is between later November and February. If you are traveling during these months, don’t forget to bring your rain gear along.
Lima and most of the coastline are sunny yet cool around these months, making it the perfect time to travel.

Brush Up On Your Spanish

Contrary to other countries in Latin America, most people in Peru don’t really speak English fluently.

Even though most people in our Peru touring network speak English, it will still make you a bit more comfortable if you brush up on your Spanish. You might also end up making some local friends.

Check Out The Local Restaurants

Peruvian cuisine is gaining popularity around the globe due to its style. Don’t forget to try out restaurants in Larcomar in Lima or if you are looking for something on the wharf, check out Rosa Nautica. Do remember; you need to be a bit adventurous to try out local Peruvian cuisine.

There is a lot to do in Peru which is the reason why thousands of tourists come down to visit every year. Ready to plan out your Peru tour package? Get in touch with us right away to get started. Facebook.
