Looking for reasons to visit Peru today? Read on and let the wanderlust take control!
1. Machu Picchu
It goes without saying that Machu Picchu is one of the biggest draws for tourists who want to visit Peru. And guess what? That is because it is absolutely incredible! It’s worth it to visit Peru to hike up this beauty alone, but of course the country has so much else to offer as well!
2. The Local Clothing
I absolutely obsessed with the colorful, local attire in Peru and would visit Peru just to marvel at it all once again. The locals are beyond charming and so willing to tell you all about their culture and traditions.
3. The Adorable Kids
Perhaps this isn’t the most compelling reason for many, but I found the local kids to be SO cute! If you are going to visit Peru then you’ll have to judge for yourself.
4. The Casual Alpacas Roaming the Streets
Born and raised in New York I am always slightly taken aback when I see wild animals walking the streets. Growing up I had a slight fascination (obsession) with llamas and alpacas so I was in heaven visiting Peru!
5. Rainbow Mountain
Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to visit this mountain myself, so I had to steal these beautiful shots from my sister instead. However, this colorful gem is the one of the main reasons why I plan to visit Peru again in the near future!
6. It’s Just So F***ing Beautiful!
Excuse my French, but Peru truly is one of the most incredible and picturesque countries. There are an endless number of hikes, diverse landscapes, and adventure suitable for the whole family! Not to mention, the food is absolutely incredible!
