6 Reasons You Have to Visit Peru NOW!
Planning a vacation and don’t really know where to go? Or maybe you are just on a tight budget? Well, look no further! I am giving you 6 reasons why Peru is where you need to be this year...
1. The Language
Peru is located in South America where the mother language is Spanish. But if you don't speak the language, don't let this intimidate you...it is a remarkable thing to experience.
To be in a different city and try on another language is fascinating. Plus, many Peruvians speak some English so communication is rarely too difficult.
2. El Cambio (the exchange rate)
If you’re visiting from America or another country that isn’t in South America, chances are your currency is a lot higher than the Peruvian Sol. Making your trip extremely easy to maintain a budget.
Also, lets not forget that also means that souvenir shopping will be lots of fun!
3. La Comida (The Food)
ATTENTION FOODIES: Peru is where it's at! Yes, Peru!
Peruvian cuisines are combinations of Hispanic, Chinese, and Spanish. Making most--if not all dishes--absolutely delicious. The most famous Peruvian dish is the Ceviche, a seafood dish.
For those that are thinking: “it’s just raw fish with that lots of lemon”. You’re right, but when a Peruvian makes it they add spices, corn, sweet potatoes, and nuts.
4. La Cultura (The Culture)
Peru has so much rich culture. If you really want to experience culture and feel part of something different, visit Cusco.
Cusco, Peru is a small city in the middle of the Andes Mountains. It’s where most people go before climbing Machu Picchu and is a lovely city where old traditions of the Incas are very much still alive.
5. La Gente (The People)
Most people have this unsafe perception of South America and as someone who has lived in Brazil and traveled to other South American countries, I would say that South America isn’t one of the safest continents. So when I knew I was coming to Peru I was little scared.
Well I am happy to say, I was wrong. I mean don’t get me wrong, it’s still South America and you should be careful in any country you’re traveling in.
But Peru is probably one of the safest South American countries I’ve visited. Not to mention that the Peruvian people are extremely humble, kind and helpful (from my encounter).
6. Visiting a NEW World Wonder
If that doesn’t convince you then don’t even bother visiting Peru!
Ladies and gents (or Caballeros y Damas), Machu Picchu is named one of the NEW world wonders (2007) and I promise you that when you actually come and see with your own two eyes, you’ll understand why. It does not disappoint!
We grew up reading about the history of Machu Picchu and all its mysteries so visiting Peru to visit Machu Picchu is an absolute must.
