There’s no better time to visit Peru than between May and October, and while there is still a window of opportunity to plan a summer adventure to Peru, time is running out! Peru is one of the most diverse and exciting countries in the world and with something for everyone, a customized tour can truly be the trip of a lifetime.
Inti Raymi – June 24th, 2014:
During the Inca Empire, the Inti Raymi or “Festival of the Sun” was one of the most important ceremonies celebrated, honoring the god Inti, as well as the Winter Solstice. The nine-day ceremony is also said to have indicated the mythical origin of the Inca, and led to a successful crop in the upcoming season. Today, this week-long celebration still honors the past with traditional dress, music, and lots of dancing. Hotel space is almost gone, so planning should begin now!
Inca Trail Sold-Out Until October:
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the most popular attractions in Peru. To avoid overuse of this cultural treasure, the Peruvian government has limited the number of trekkers allowed on the trail. Right now passes are sold out until October. While there’s still time to plan for October, those passes will be selling out soon as well. If someone is looking to travel sooner, not to worry, there are a number of other wonderful hikes to enjoy around the region such as our Lodge to Lodge trek.
While exotic and exciting, Peru is very easy to travel to. No Visas are required for travelers arriving from the US, Canada, or Europe. No shots are necessary and travelers arrive in Peru jet lag free when coming from North America. Once in Peru, an English-speaking Yampu local guides will be able to provide an opportunity for local immersion and an in-depth history of each destination.
Peru is the perfect location for all types of foodies; from those seeking out adventurous street cart cuisine, those looking to enjoy authentic local dishes prepared in remote villages, or those with a refined palate and a taste for 5-star dishes prepared in Lima with some award-winning Peruvian wine. Lima is ranked #1 for food and drink by Frommer’s.
As an added bonus Yampu Tours is offering an extra $100 off on Yampu Peru Highlights Tours until May 31st! Travel must be completed by December 31st, 2014.
