Peru Travel Insurance
Most first time visitors to Peru go to conquer the Inca Trail and explore the ancient Machu Picchu, and although this is an amazing experience, Peru has so much more to offer. From beautiful beaches and quaint fishing villages to epic hikes and stunning wildlife – not to mention Lake Titicaca and the Nazca Lines.

Key Contact Details and Important Information
Best Time to Visit
The best time to visit Peru is between May and October, but especially from June to September when you’ll find clear and sunny days and great visibility for the Inca Trail, and fewer mosquitos in the Amazon basin. July and August are the peak tourism months, so avoid if you dislike the crowds.
What to See and Do
There is so much to see and do in Peru, but here are some of our favourites to add to your itinerary;
- If you can withstand the hike then every visitor to Peru should travel the Inca Trail to the ancient city of Machu Picchu.
- Visit the ancient and mysterious Nazca Lines, huge geoglyphs which remained unexplained.
- Hike the spectacular Colca Canyon and spot enormous Andean Condors overhead.
- Surf and relax on the beaches in Menorca.
- Spot tropical wildlife in the Manu National Park.
What to Eat and Drink
If you’re an animal lover or a little squeamish, make sure you know what you’re eating in Peru, as they do like to serve things like Guinea Pig! Some dishes to try include Anticuchos, which is a mince beef kebab and ceviche, made from lime juice and raw fish. If you like your teas then Emoliente is a thick and sticky herbal version, or, if you’d prefer something stronger, try Pisco Sour, a drink made from local grape brandy.
