Peru is a fascinating country sharing borders with Chile, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and the Pacific Ocean. The country is made up of three distinct regions: the narrow Pacific coastal belt, the wide Andean mountain range and the Amazon rainforest.
Peru's population of over 25 million is a diverse combination of people of indigenous, mestizo, European, African, Japanese and Chinese descent. Spanish and Quechua, an indigenous language, are both official languages. All of this combined makes Peru the perfect place for getting a taste of South America’s different geographical and ethnic landscapes.
If you're in search of history and culture, you need not look further. Peru was once the center of the mighty Incan Empire; the empire's capital was what is nowadays the city of Cusco. Spread throughout the country are intriguing architectural ruins from the ancient Moche, Nazca and Incan civilizations, such as the remains of Machu Picchu- recently declared one of the New 7 Wonders of the World!
