About this item

This newly revised and updated guidebook introduces you to the wonders of Peru, from the high Andes peaks to the slow-moving Amazon waters. Be it learning about the four breeds of camels native to Peru or exploring the markets of Cuzco, you'll pick up the best suggestions for getting the most out of your trip. The guide begins with a detailed account of the country--what not to be missed, Peru today, food and drink, land and environment, history, and the arts--followed by nine regional chapters, including Lima, the Southern Lowlands and Southern Highlands, Cuzco and Machu Picchu, the North Coast via the Central Highlands, Huaraz & the High Andes, and ending with the Northern Highlands and the Amazon. A detailed Travelwise section tells you how to get there and how to get around, with author-picked hotels and restaurants.
