Peru Highlights

Amazon Rainforest

The Amazon Rainforest is the largest jungle in the world. You’ll see species of plants, birds, fish, mammals, and insects as you relax in a comfortable all-inclusive lodge near the Tambopata Research Center in Puerto Maldonado. Luxury Amazon River cruises from Iquitos are an alternative option for jungle exploration done in style.

Inca Trail

Hike the famous Inca Trail to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu. This 26-mile hike through idyllic Peruvian landscapes only permits 500 people per day, so talk with your Inca Expert travel advisor today to book in advance.


Visit Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire and gateway to Machu Picchu. Tour through historical sights and Inca temples or delight in gourmet food at some of the top restaurants in Cusco.

Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca is a cultural and natural wonder in Peru. For impressive sunsets, a visit to the Uros and Taquile floating islands, and relaxing luxury hotels, head to Lake Titicaca.

Sacred Valley

The Sacred Valley has unending sites to behold and things to do. Visit the Maras Salt Mines, Ollantaytambo ruins, Pisac market, begin the Inca Trail, or simply relax at your scenic Sacred Valley hotel with unmissable views.


It’d be a mistake to miss out on Lima’s top restaurants and UNESCO World Heritage sites. The capital city is home to the most exclusive restaurant in Peru: Central. You can also tour through museums, art galleries, and more in the vibrant city of Lima.

Nazca Lines

The mysterious Nazca Lines are giant geoglyphs drawn into the desert floor. Soar above them to see the hummingbird, the astronaut, the spider, and many more!


Arequipa is a refreshing mix of colonial architecture, Peruvian history, and natural beauty. Visit the historical center, Santa Catalina Monastery, or various lookout points in the city for views of El Misti Volcano. Then, spot Andean condors soaring through Colca Canyon as you continue your tour through scenic Peru.

What our clients say


Paracas is worth adding to your Peru itinerary if you love the ocean, bird-watching, and archaeology. As one of the first National Reserves in Peru, the Paracas National Reserve is an emblem of Peru’s coastal landscape and its unique biodiversity. Brimming with migratory birds, ocean-kissed rock formations, and sea lions resting on every imaginable surface, nature lovers will find a haven in the Ballestas Islands. Visit the nearby Nazca Lines or Tambo Colorado archaeological complex for impressively preserved pre-Incan artifacts. Or simply relax beach-side in a hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Private car or bus. The 160 mile (260 km) journey from Lima to Paracas can be done in 3 hours with private transportation. The comfortable bus ride will take 4 hours.

We wouldn’t recommend only one day in Paracas simply because of the 4-hour transit time to and from Lima.

2-3 days. Most travelers opt for 2-days/1-night in Paracas. Day 1 includes traveling from Lima to a Paracas hotel and an overnight stay. Day 2 includes a morning tour of Ballestas Islands and a return trip to Lima. An additional day can be added for further sightseeing in the Paracas National Reserve.

Paracas Bay is a richly biodiverse ecosystem in the Pacific Ocean. The Humboldt current flows off the coast of Peru and brings in nutrients that attract all types of wildlife. With over 200+ bird species, 52 fish species, 19 mammals, and 6 reptile species, animal highlights in Paracas include:

  • Humboldt penguins
  • Sea lions
  • Fur seals
  • Humpback whales
  • Blue-footed boobies
  • Guanay guano bird
  • Dolphins
  • Pelicans
  • Flamingos

The best Paracas Hotels offer stunning views of Paracas Bay. Our Top Pick Paracas Hotels are:

  • 5-Star Hotel Paracas, A Luxury Collection Resort
  • 4-Star Hotel Hacienda Paracas

December - March are the summer months on the coast of Peru. Days are hot and skies are clear which draws in Peruvians who summer in their beach houses along Paracas Bay. Wildlife like sea lions can be spotted year round, but the best time to see Humboldt penguins is between April - November.
