7 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT PERU

Introduction:

Peru is a country with a millenary past due to the fact that before the arrival of the Incas, various pre-Columbian cultures existed which developed in the north, center, and south of what we now know as Peru. Each culture, developed in their regions, contributed their own art, beliefs and lifestyle. Knowing a country so rich culturally for its past will be seen today by its traditions, music, art and food which varies a lot in the place where you are within the Peruvian region.

There are many reasons to visit Peru and then we will let you know only some of them.


1.- To experience its ancient ruins and culture

With the arrival of the Incas, a new cultural process began and domination over the other cultures that lived thousands of years ago within the Peruvian national territory.

The Incas were excellent builders of temples made in stone, as well as good goldsmithing, agriculture and hydraulic engineering.

During its initial process in Cusco and expansive, the Incas built magnificent buildings which we can admire today, some of them are in the Sacred Valley or the same Machu Picchu in Cusco.

As they also had a good command of the metal, they applied goldsmithing techniques to create incredible pieces of clothing and jewelry ornaments which were in most cases used by the noble people.

Due to the Spanish conquest, many Inca buildings were destroyed and sabotaged however, some of their constructions have been preserved for the admiration of future generations in how they lived this incredible culture.

Along the length of Peru you can find other constructions before the Inca, which can be visited by travelers. There are those in the north in Chan, Chan or as well as in the north east in Kuelap or more mysterious and magical like the Nazca lines.


2.- To meet the people

As Peru is a diverse country of races, this is reflected in its traditions, music and dances which change from town to town as well as some of its customs.

In general the people of Peru are kind, peaceful, curious and want to welcome you to know that you come from another country, they really want you to feel like a local, at home.

The people who live in the provinces love to tell their stories and learn from the occurrences of other people, when the time comes they invite you to share with you to exchange experiences, which helps to strengthen the local cultural message.

In some regions you can also see the Peruvians who have a direct link with their Inca ancestors, and carry the lineage of the language as a preservation of the Quechua culture which is so important for Peru's past.


3.- To enjoy their handcrafts

Art in its various expressions are passed from generation to generation. In this sense we can see that many of the fabrics, ornaments, and jewelry made by local artisans in Peru are a unique expression that comes from very remote times in some of their cases show the fusion between two cultures, the Inca and Spanish represented in religious manifestations.

Textile art is incredibly well crafted by women who, by weaving exquisite patterns, compose a decorative wall mat, scarf, jumper, or anything that can attract the attention of the traveler because the colors are unique.

Other great crafts can be found in the form of instruments, wood carvings, canvases, jewelry and more. Undoubtedly the technique of Peruvian artisans will amaze you during your journey in this land of dreams, myths and legends.


4.- To see firsthand its natural diversity

Peru has a diverse microclimates of around 28 individual climates in a single country.

You can see snow in the Andes, and not far away enjoy the tropical climate of the Amazon, or instead enjoy the beautiful beaches of the north or also do sandboarding in the desert of the oasis of Huacachina in Ica. You can also appreciate the fauna, and nature in different landscapes, see penguins in the Ballestas Islands, next to the dry and desert city of Paracas, in the animals of the Amazon rainforest. You can hike to the summit in the Andes, or you can go down to the deepest canyons in the world: the Colca Canyon and the Cotahuasi Canyon (The Colca Canyon and the Cotahuasi Canyon).

Peru means variety! which makes it perfect for this destination to have many short trips and experience this natural variety to the fullest.


5.- To indulge in their cuisine

Peru has one of the best culinary cuisines in South America and now acclaimed worldwide as fusion food.

Peruvian cuisine is the result of the influence of European, Asian, African food with its own nuances for its taste in preparation. The Creole dishes, as it is sometimes called, are: Lomo saltado (meat in pieces, taken with potatoes, tomatoes, onions and other spices accompanied with white rice), the classic ceviche (pieces of raw fish cooked in lemon juice) ), empanadas (mini cakes made of chicken, meat or vegetables), Tiradito (Peruvian sashimi in lemon juice), Butifarra (meat and salad roll), and Chicharr贸n (fried pork skins with pork) in short these are some of the dishes that you can not miss during your tour of Peru. If you're curious to try an Andean delicacy, try guinea pig meat. It is juicy and tender, but not for the weak stomach. In general, Peruvian meals are usually spicy and heavy, but at the same time so delicious to the taste of your palate that they become an adventure without comparison.


6.- To Enjoy their beaches

Peru has an amazing Pacific Ocean coastline which is perfect for surfing purposes.

There is fabulous spots to practice this amazing sport which bring local and international surfers to enjoy different peruvian towns and a variety of food, music and traditional dances.


7.- To enjoy their drinks!

Peru national cocktail drink are the Pisco Sour which comes from the Ica region. Although Pisco sour is done with white eggs and some secrets..you can try the Pisco with a white soft drink called Chilcano. There is also a good selection of national vineyards such as Tacama, Queirolo o Vista Allegre which are an example for your final choice.

We have also a good variety of national beers such as Pilsen, Cristal or Cusquena. Also in recent years there is an increase on the home brew ones and can be found in any artesanal beer house.

As you know a good drink will come together with a selection of good food so this has been mentioned before. For this reason always ask your waiter the best choices available so you can mix well your drink with your food.

In case you don't want to try any alcohol than try our bubble gum tasting Inca Kola or the emoliente ( a mix of local herbs very relaxing indeed), or the coca tea which it will be super if you are around Cusco or any of the cities at a high altitude.
