Peru is a jewel in the crown of South America. Not only is the country full of history and natural beauty but it has some of the friendliest people on the planet. Tourists once avoided Peru in favor of places with more resorts, but today a rise in the amount of eco-tourism and people interested in visiting archaeological sites has led to a rediscovery of the country of Peru.
There is something for everyone in Peru, even those looking to stay at a luxury resort. A luxury resort, though, will isolate you from all that Peru has to offer. For a taste of the real Peru, stay away from these resorts and stay in smaller accommodations. You will be rewarded by being able to experience the real atmosphere of the people and culture of Peru.
