There foods have the taste, texture and quality that rivals many of the popular foods found in restaurants all over the world. So, to truly experience Peru you have to experience the local cuisine as much as you can.

2. Machu Picchu Centennial.

One of the most historical Incan locations ever found has finally reached a pinnacle this year in 2012. This is an ancient fortress of the Incan Empire that is set up high in the Andes. It was only recently that it was discovered by an American explorer Hiram Bingham in 1911. That makes this year 2012 its centennial discovery. With many different activities, festivals and reenactments planned throughout the year. There is a couple of ways to get to this mountain isolation one is to hike the other is to take a train or a cab up the narrow mountain pass.

3. The Amazon

There can be no true description of the Amazon rainforest. You undoubtedly have to experience it for yourself. Nowhere else on earth is there such a litany of diverse biological or ecological untouched treasure than the Amazon. The world Heritage foundation has even recently named it one of the newest 7 wonders of the natural world. The rain forest stretch all through south America, but in Peru, there are some notable sites to see as Iguazu falls. You can experience the sites sounds and wonders of many of the species and plants of the Amazon rainforest. As always never venture into the rainforest on your own, always hire an experience guide to trek you through. They can be hired locals for around 20 dollars. So, it is well worth the expense to take one along and not get lost. So, plan wisely, and do not miss out on this once in a lifetime experience in the Amazon rain forest of Peru.
