    Check out this map and youll see all our provinces

    There are 3 regions:

    1.- The rainless Coast (much like San Diego and Baja California)

    Is like a desert except for the valleys formed by rivers, great beaches for surfers. From North to South: TUMBES, PIURA, LAMBAYEQUE and the western part of LA LIBERTAD, ANCASH, LIMA, ICA, AREQUIPA, MOQUEGUA & TACNA. The eastern part are the highlands (between 4,000 - 15,000 ft above sea level)

    2.- The highlands are part of the provinces already mentioned along with the provinces of CAJAMARCA, HUANUCO, PASCO, JUNIN, HUANCAVELICA, AYACUCHO, APURIMAC, CUZCO & PUNO.

    3.- The AMAZON. The rest of the provinces belong to the Amazon Jungle: AMAZONAS, LORETO, SAN MARTIN, UCAYALI & MADRE DE DIOS

    Every Province has a tourist atraction and many cities to go

    TUMBES: Great beaches & fishing. Cities Tumbes & Puerto Pizarro

    PIURA: Great beaches, Surfing & fishing. It's capital Piura is an oasis in the middle of a great desert, MANCORA, CABO BLANCO.

    I could keep going on and on but that would be spoilling your exploring experience!

    I'll just give you a pointer for places of tourism attraction in order of inportance: CUZCO, AREQUIPA, LIMA, LA LIBERTAD, ANCASH, PUNO, ICA, LAMBAYEQUE, CAJAMARCA, LORETO, MADRE DE DIOS, PIURA, AMAZONAS & AYACUCHO

    you could bypass to Lima's significant sq. (plaza de Armas) the place you would be waiting to ensure the Persident's domicile and the Cathedral. you need to bypass to 3 museums too. Museo de la Nacion (greatest museum), Museo de Oro(only Incan gold shows), Museo de la Santa Inquisicion (the previous Spanish inquisition), Huaca Pucllana (an incan temple interior the process Lima), Museo Nacional de Antropologia (a lot of Incan stuff). March is a great time to bypass to the coastline too i'd fairly advise finding for some form of excursion to confirm you bypass to as many places as attainable once you get there.

    This's best description you can get about Peru

    Machu Picchu ruins

    The only hotel in Machu Picchu is the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge. It is considered as extraordinarily expensive; you pay a hefty premium for merely "very nice" rooms, because of the location, location, and location. Rooms do not have views of the ruins themselves.

    It's difficult to get a reservation unless you already have one at the same company's Hotel Monasterio in Cuzco. US$715 (double) - US$1045 (suite). Guests of this hotel can visit the ruins with the same schedule of travellers who sleep in Aguas Calientes, but can enjoy the magnificent isolation of the sanctuary.


    Tourists from North America, receive a visa upon arrival for up to 90 days.

    When entering the country, you need to pass the immigration office (inmigration). There you get a stamp in your passport that states the number of days you are allowed to stay (usually 90 days). You can get an extension at immigration offices in any major city for 20US$ per month plus 26 soles administration fee. Make sure to take your time, don't expect things to be ready within less than an hour or even a day. The maximum extension allows you to stay for up to 180 days in total.
