Short documentary on Machu Picchu by Fernando Garza Serinya
Welcome in Peru, the most fascinating destination in South America.
Peru is an incredible mixture of archaeology, historical monuments, nature and adventure.
Geographically, Peru is divided in three regions:
The Coastal area next to the Pacific Ocean, featuring deserts, beautiful beaches and fertile valleys.
The Highlands area dominated by the Andes Mountain Range, with elevations as high as 6.768 meters above sea level (22.204 feet) at the summit of the Huascarán snow-capped peak.
The Jungle area of lush tropical vegetation forming part of the Peruvian Amazon Region, home to Peru’s largest nature reserve areas.
Visit the great Peruvian cities, hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, take a trip to Lake Titicaca in Puno, overfly the Nazca Lines, visit the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest canyons in the world (3,400 mts), embark on a natural experience to the Paracas National Reserve or navigate through the Amazon Jungle to visit the Tambopata and Manu Natural Reserves.
Remember: When you arrived in Peru you were issued with an entry permit. First, make sure you know how many days you were given! Whichever entry permit you have received, you must renew this at least one day before it expires. Be careful - 60 days does not translate as 2 months. Do not forget! One way to renew your visa is to cross an international border. From Cusco a visit to Bolivia (Copacabana, La Paz) via the fabulous Lake Titicaca is the quickest and easiest trip enabling a visa extension. Alternatively, extensions can be made for one month at a cost of around $28 US at Immigrations in Cusco. This will take you most of a morning.
