Criolla is the name given to the traditional Peruvian style of cooking (which usually involve meats, particularly chicken or sea food, blended with Peruvian aji chillies, lime juice and red onions and served over rice or potato), however that just skims the surface as the variety, beauty and complexity of the food and flavours any traveller to Peru will be able to experience. You must try a Pisco Sour in Peru - delicious!
A visit to the ancient Inca citadel Machu Picchu is a must. Cusco is the archaeological capital of the region with a Spanish colonial heritage. Visit an Andean family home and interact with Peru's friendly locals and take a cooking tour in Lima, known as the gastronomy capital of South America.
Peru’s climate has two main seasons – wet and dry – though the weather varies greatly depending on the geographical region. Temperature is mostly influenced by elevation: the higher you climb, the cooler it becomes.Back to top
