Peru maps - Peru Travel GuidePeru, the land of the Incas, awaits you with a world of adventure and excitement.

The perfectly fitted stones of this glorious empire continue to be the main attraction to people from all over the world. Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas discovered centuries after the last Conquistador left, remains a web of riddles for the adventurer and the scientist to tackle. The Nazca lines, what were they, UFO landing sites or a pathway to the heavens and the gods?

You do not need to be a history buff to enjoy Peru. Of late, thousands of people have dared visit the still as yet unknown Amazon Rainforest (selva) in search of cures for the world's illnesses by tapping into the knowledge of Shamans (medicine men) who may hold the secret to help us defeat the incurable.

You can have a reasonably comfortable trip to the deeps of the jungle in Iquitos, starting at the sea side, crossing the Andes, and slowly making your way down. As Iquitos isn't reachable by road, the last two days will be spent on an Amazon Cruise boat. But if you want to get to the selva quickly, just fly one of the modern airlines that serves Iquitos and Tarapoto with daily flights from Lima. Despite being visited by almost 1.5 million foreigners each year, you can always find a place off the beaten track, where you will be the main attraction for the locals.

On the way to the low jungle in the Amazon Basin, some tourists will find that the high jungle plateau is a good place for them. Especially since it can tend to have a slightly lower humidity level than the low jungle areas. Tarapoto is the most important city in the area, and it is the trade center for the District of San Martin. Tourists aren't croweded into Tarapoto and surrounding cities as might be found in some other locales in Peru, but they are generally treated very well by the locals who welcome their business.

You may not be the adventerous type, but relax. Peru is working hard at becoming a modern country equipping itself to face the challenges of the new millenium. The five star hotels, the restaurants, and the nightlife will dazzle you. So come and explore this exciting land, rich in history and culture. Click now on any of the choices below to obtain information and tips to make your trip a delightful experience. Hasta la vista amigos! y Buen Viaje!

The capital of Peru is the city of Lima. The principle cities in Peru are Lima, Arequipa, Trujillo, Chiclayo, Iquitos, Huancayo, Piura, Chimbote, Cusco, Pucallpa, Tacna, Ica, Juliaca, Sullana, Chincha Alta, Huanuco, Ayacuchu, Cajamarca, Tarapoto, Talara, Tumbes.
