Peru is most often associated with the ancient tribe of the Incas. Although this history offers visits to majestic sites such as Machu Picchu, the country has many other sites that are sure to excite any traveler. The capital city of Lima offers a glimpse into the pre-Columbian and Moorish influences that have shaped the culture into what it is today. If the Inca Trail and city sights are not what you are looking for, Lake Titicaca is a great alternative. This area allows travelers to experience the Andean plateau with prime views of Bolivia’s tallest mountains while engaging with the local Campesinas (peasant women) who wear the quintessential bowler hats many individuals associate with Peru.
