Peruvian cuisine is a symbol of pride for each of its inhabitants. It is one of the most extensive and exquisite in the world without a doubt. Every day, representatives of our kitchen create new techniques and variations of dishes that definitely delight the palate of their lucky guests. A country blessed with a privileged kitchen, which costs a lot to decide which one is better than another. However, there are 20 typical dishes of Peru that you should not stop eating:
The campaign, promoted through the travel program “And you what plans” of PROMPERÚ, is aimed at the national tourist and considers the promotion and dissemination of the tourist routes of Tres Cañones de Suykutambo, Palccoyo (Rainbow Mountain), Mirador de Cóndores de Chonta and the Q'eswachaka Inca Bridge.
I know that knowing Machu Picchu is the dream of many, and even more so to get there as the Incas went there, walking the Inca Trail. The Incas over the years built an elaborate and extensive system of trails, known as the Qhapac Ñan, that connected all of Tahuantinsuyo
The Hacienda San José was built at the end of the 17th century, it used to be one of the main haciendas along the Peruvian coast, not because of the important production of sugar cane but also because of the number of slaves who worked there and who converted it in one of the most prosperous lands of the time. These days it is used as a tourist hotel, where many stories and vestiges show how Afro-Peruvian immigrants used to live in this part of Peru. However, in all honesty it is not what is in the farm or what is around it that makes it so interesting, it is what is underneath that makes it simply amazing!
In its moment of maximum splendor, the Inca Empire extended its power over several countries in the region and therefore established a gigantic network of roads known as Qhapac Ñan (royal or Inca road, in Quechua), which came to unite Quito (Ecuador ) with Tucumán (Argentina) through the Andes Mountains. Our Inca Trail is just a small part of this wide circuit, which stands out for its incredible landscapes, important archaeological complexes, as well as for its great diversity of flora and fauna.
Cusco is the archeological capital of South America, located in Peru, today it has around 300,000 inhabitants and is 3,326 meters above sea level. It has an excellent infrastructure dedicated to tourism (possibly the best in Peru), with hotels, restaurants and services that adapt to the thousands of tourists that come from all over the planet. You can buy clothes, crafts, etc.
Do you know the Lambayeque or Sicán culture? It doesn't sound to you, right? We had never heard of her until she reached Chiclayo. It was one of the great civilizations that developed on the current north coast of Peru and that have amazed and continue to amaze archaeologists and those who, like us, discover them as they pass through the country. Vicús, Moche, Lambayeque and Chimú were some of these advanced cultures that inhabited this area for about 3000 years but which most of the common people know little about. Why? Because later came the Incas, the famous Incas. A civilization that developed over a hundred years and whose fame hides / hides millennia of development from other great peoples.
Chachapoyas, mochicas, lambayeque-sicán ... and we still had one more culture to discover in the #LatTrip before arriving in Lima: the Chimú or Chimor Culture. In Trujillo we visited what was its capital: Chan Chan, the largest mud city in the world at the time - and now occupies the second place behind Bam, in Iran. At its peak it occupied an area of 22 km2 and had a population of between 60,000 and 300,000 inhabitants - archaeologists disagree on this point. Again, even more in this case, we decided that going through adobe avenues without an explanation would not be the best way to get to know this great culture and we opted for a guided tour.

With so much to see and do, a trip to Peru could last a lifetime, but we select the best to make it round.
Machu Picchu is one of the 7 Wonders of the World and any trip to Peru must include your visit. This citadel impresses anyone, not only for its buildings, which can still be perceived, but for its incredible location. Machu Picchu is between mountains, almost 2500 meters above sea level, and one is not able to imagine how such a huge construction could be completed in such an inhospitable place. In addition, Machu Picchu emanates a special energy and we recommend you visit it first thing in the morning, especially at dawn, when you will have it practically for yourself. The sunrise in Machu Picchu can become the star of your trip to Peru and you should not miss it.
Do men spend the same as women? How many take advantage of the date to confess their love? These are some of the questions posed by the study.
Although Lima is a city of passage to Cusco and other cities of Peru, it has a huge colonial charm that is worth discovering with our own eyes. In addition, one day in Lima is insufficient, and for this reason I will give you the best recommendations to take advantage of your temporary trip.
There are mysteries in this world that have been igniting the imagination of human beings for centuries: from the construction techniques of the pyramids of Egypt or Stonehenge to what happened with cultures that disappeared completely without leaving any more trace than their sculptures - like that of St. Augustine in Colombia or that of the megalithic temples of Malta. We like the questions we cannot answer - some for now and others never - so, being in Peru, we could not stop flying over one of those classic mysteries: the Nazca lines. It is clear that we do not have all the answers, but we do know what the questions are: what, when, where, who and how.
The Catador, which is the name of this vineyard, has passed through the hands of 5 different generations. Over the years they have had to work to balance the tension between keeping tradition alive and incorporating new technology to produce enough wine. This whole process is completely handmade and is part of the Inca tradition. Different types of grapes grow here, including Quebranta, Criolla Negra, Mollar, Uvina, Torontel, Moscatel and Italy, which are the most popular.
After our visit to Chachapoyas knowing its ancient culture, our trip through Peru continued with pre-Inca archeology and civilizations. As we wanted, in this second visit to the country, we continued traveling in time, but much further back. We introduce you to the Moches or Mochicas, one of the most important civilizations in northern Peru for their art –impressive ceramics–, longevity and extension.
The night touches almost the dawn on the terrace of the Osso restaurant, where the gin-tonics try to appease the impressive feast that we just hit in the best meat place in Peru and, perhaps, one of the best in the world. “What are you going to do tomorrow?” Rafa asks me, “I pass by you at 10 in the morning.

Last year there was a record number of Argentines, who in addition to the classics, are increasingly visiting the beaches of the north, the deserts of the south and the Amazon. Prices for next summer.
It is often believed that these lines can only be seen from the sky. That is why they have generated all kinds of questions and lucubrations. Were the Nazca lines dedicated to the gods? Was there at that time possible technology for the magnitude of this work? Were they landing strips for aviation prototypes of the Nazca culture or, beyond, for extraterrestrial beings? Were they made by human hands? What is certain is that the beauty of the Nazca lines can be seen from the top of the surrounding hills, which radically changes the way of understanding them. In fact, the Peruvian archaeologist Toribio Mejia Xesspe discovered them in the 20th century, specifically in 1927.
