Why Peru should top your 2019 vacation list

noviembre 1, 2018

Peru is one of the world’s hottest travel destinations this 2019… you ask why?

There’s a little bit of everything inside Peru’s boarders – diverse regions, great food, history, culture, nature and adventure. Peru is one of the only countries in the world to have coast, desert, highlands, mountains, and jungle. Here are 5 of the top reasons why you should make Peru your vacation destination for 2019…


Accessible, Affordable, and Easy

Lima’s Jorge Chavez Intl. Airport has become one of the major airport hubs in Latin America. There are currently direct flights from 8 international airports in the United States (LA, SF, Dallas, Atlanta, NY, DC, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale), as well as direct flights from Madrid, London, Amsterdam, and various destinations within Latin America. The great part of so much airport traffic coming into Peru is that there are options for everyone’s travel budget! If you prioritize comfort and service over cost, LATAM and AVIANCA are great options, and if your priority is to make your trip as economic as possible, you’ll find that AeroMexico, COPA AIRLINES, JET BLUE, or SPIRIT Airlines can offer quite inexpensive options. Either way, Peru is a great option for your next adventure away from home!

Machu Picchu

As one of the 7 Wonders of the World, the citadel of Machu Picchu should be on everyone’s travel bucket-list. Whether you decide to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, one of the top-rated hikes in South America, or travel to the ruins by train, visiting this majestic and energy-filled site will leave you revamped and curious to continue exploring more.

A New Look for Lima

For the past 10+ years, the city of Lima has received a bad reputation as a dangerous, dirty, and unattractive destination for travellers. The ideal trip included arriving to Lima’s international airport and flying directly to Cusco the same day. This isn’t the case anymore. Lima has become a major attraction within South America – host to some of the top restaurants in the world (Le Central #4 and Maido #13) as well as it being the only coastal capital in South America. The influx of international communities in neighborhoods like Miraflores and San Isidro has given the city a new feel – much safer and more attractive. Make sure to stop by the Larco Museum for a great overview of ancient Peruvian civilizations and one of the largest erotic art collections in the world.

Family Travel

With such geographic and cultural diversity (Peru is host to 30 of the world’s 32 microclimates) you’ll find a variety of destinations to enjoy as a family. Whether it’s navigating the Amazon River, surfing the northern coast, 4-wheeling in the Sacred Valley, or learning about medicinal plants on a jungle walk in Tambopata, Peru will keep the kids entertained and full of smiles.

An Adventure-Seekers Paradise

For those that love the adrenaline of white-water rafting, surfing big waves, and hiking snow-capped peaks, you’ll find plenty of activities to fit your travel needs within Peru’s boarders. Just in the region of Cusco you can indulge in downhill mountain biking, hiking to the summit of Rainbow Mountain along with a variety of hikes to Machu Picchu, rafting 4 and 5-star rapids on the Urubamba River as well as taking the tallest zipline in South America. Peru is truly a paradise for adventure-seekers – a place you’ll want to return to over and over again!
