Although people travel to Peru in hopes of seeing the world-famous Incan monuments of Machu Picchu, there are many other things on offer throughout the country. With the Amazon rainforest, the Andes Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean beaches all within its borders, knowing the best places to stay throughout the country is essential.
Cusco – Cusco is essentially one big UNESCO World Heritage Site spread out across an entire city. This is where travelers can find day trips to Machu Picchu, while staying at some of the best hotels in the country.
Travelers can find accommodation in the small and compact city center, as it is highly recommended for first time travelers to Peru. However, if you want to be closer to the archeological sites, Sacsayhuaman is a little further out and is slightly cheaper.
Arequipa – Arequipa is the second most popular destination in Peru, and with its laid-back atmosphere, makes for a great family holiday spot.
Although Arequipa is regarded as one of the safest places in Peru, it is still recommended to find accommodation in the city center, as it is not just safer, but also more central to the hotspots within the city.
Travel Tip : Most hotel receptions and accommodation owners will be happy to advise you on the safest places to visit.
Lake Titicaca – Straddling between Peru and Bolivia, this destination is an area with astounding natural beauty in the south of the country.
Puno is the only city in the Lake Titicaca region, and therefore home to the best accommodation.
Fun Fact : Lake Titicaca is one of the highest bodies of water in the world!
Peru is perfect for any and all types of travelers as it has a little of everything. Whether you’re traveling for the cultural sights like the Inca Monuments, or you’re simply looking for an off-the-beaten-track vacation, this destination will not disappoint.
