A cruise holiday to Peru has a lot to offer: bustling cities, stunning landscapes and ancient cultures. The first thing most people think of when Peru is mentioned is the legendary lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu and with good reason. It must be one of the most awe-inspiring sights in the world.
From the port of Callo, it is within easy reach as are Lima, the stunning Lake Titkaka and Cusco with its cobbled streets and unique combination of colonial and religious buildings.
A cruise to Peru is all about the history, people and ancient ruins. But you mustn’t forget the imposing mountain ranges, vast deserts, beautiful beaches and tropical jungles. The food also won’t disappoint. Hot and spicy in nature, Peruvian food uses garlic and hot pepper to create its distinctive taste. Watch out for the pisco – the national spirit, which is brandy distilled from grapes.
All in all a 2017 or 2018 cruise to Peru is like stepping back in time. So grab your Indiana Jones hat and unearth some ancient Inca treasures.
