Peru, Land of Hidden Treasures


The Incas forged an uncredible civilization that learned how to tame the geography of Peru. This ancient society lived in harmony with the rivers, the sun, the rain, the ocean, the jungle and the cold dryness of the Andes mountains.

Part of this ancient society still lives today in each town and can be seen through the customs of the people. A trip to Peru takes you back in time and allows you to rediscover the exciting lives of the Incas, Chancas, Chachapoyas, Mochicas, and Wari, as well as their great works of art, their feasts, the roots of their social strength and the energy of their people.

Experience Peru and discover a wealth of different worlds, all with their own individual landscapes, sounds, colors and tastes. In Cusco, Incan and Spanish colonial cultures converge. Lima offers cosmopolitan excitement. And, of course, no visit to Peru would be complete without experiencing one of the wonders of the world, Machu Picchu.

Today Peru (the original home of the potato) is being recognized by foodies around the world as a country at the vanguard of culinary innovation. Peruvian chefs are combining fresh, local ingredients with Peru's multi-cultural influences to create delightful dishes, served at world-renowned restaurants. Traditional recipes meet with a rebellious spirit of innovation to delight diners nightly.
