Visit its buildings and each of its corners will make you discover the best kept secrets of the lesser-known cultures of our country. If you have planned a trip to Lima, you can not miss these places!

Caral

Did you know that in Peru lived the oldest civilization in America? In the northern area of ​​the department of Lima, three and a half hours from the city center, is Caral. This archaeological site preserves the ruins of a civilization that inhabited here about 5000 years ago, that is, it was contemporary to civilizations as old as Mesopotamia.

At present, access to Caral is allowed for tourist visits, which are carried out with a guide, and for the celebration of various activities.

 

Huaca Pucllana

Among the large and busy streets of Miraflores district in Lima and just a few minutes walk from our hotels is located the Huaca Pucllana, an archaeological site that impresses with its location and its history.

The Lima culture (200 AD – 700 AD) was commissioned to build this building made of adobe that originally was made up of several pyramids, squares and streets, of which only the great pyramid is currently preserved.

Knowing the Huaca Pucllana is one of the most exciting activities to do in Lima. For only S / 15 (US$ 4.5), you can access the ruins with a guide who will tell you all the details of its history.

 

Pachacámac

In the southern area of ​​Lima and very close to the Pacific Ocean is Pachacámac, which for a long time was the most important sanctuary of the Peruvian coast. This important archaeological site was built in different stages and by different cultures. The first one was the Lima Culture, followed by the Huari, the Ichma and, finally, the Incas, who created the imposing temple of the Sun, from which the sea can be appreciated.

This sanctuary is currently an archaeological complex in which you can see the buildings that are still preserved and an important museum that exhibits pieces of the four cultures that lived here and among which stands out the wooden figure that represents the god creator of the land, Pachacámac.

As you see, Lima is full of wonderful places where you can be trapped by history. If you want to visit them, we will wait for you with all the comforts in our hotels in the Peruvian capital. Know them here!

The road to Machu Picchu is a unique experience that you can experience in different ways: from a comfortable train trip through the Andes to an exciting walk of several days through snow-capped mountains, lagoons, waterfalls and many more.

It depends on your budget, the time you have to arrive and the type of trip you are looking for, you can choose between three different ways to get from Cusco to Machu Picchu.

Train

The train is the most common and fastest way to reach the Inca citadel. Inca Rail and Peru Rail are the two companies that offer this service to foreign and national tourists, but Peruvians and residents in Peru also have the option of doing this tour on the local train, much cheaper.

The trains to Machu Picchu depart from the Poroy and Ollantayambo stations, which can be reached by bus from the city of Cusco. The destination is Machu Picchu Pueblo, also known as Aguas Calientes. Once here, you have two options: take a bus to get to the citadel or do the last stretch, 1.8 km, by walking.

The price of the tourist trains goes from the 55 dollars (one way), whereas the local train costs S/ 20 (around 6 dollars) round trip.

 

Inca Trail

One of the great challenges of the most adventurous tourists is to reach Machu Picchu through the Inca Trail, a route that goes back to the times of the Empire, when it was used to connect all the regions of Tahuantinsuyo.

You will have to make this route with a tourist agency, who offer different options: from the best known of two and four days to alternative roads through the Salkantay or areas of the Peruvian jungle.

To carry out the Inca Trail you will have to be well prepared physically, since all the routes have large climbs and descents and pass through high-altitude points above sea level.

Also, if you are thinking about doing this trek, you have to bear in mind that during February the Inca Trail remains closed due to the rains and to carry out maintenance works.

Compared to the train, this option is much more expensive, since prices range between 300 and 600 dollars.

 

Alternative trekking

Contrary to what many people think, the trip to Machu Picchu does not have to mean a large outlay of money. If you want an unforgettable adventure at an economical price, you have to take the alternative route, a trek that is done on your own and in which you will find very few tourists.

To make this route, you will have to travel bby bus or taxi from Cusco to Santa Teresa and once there, you will have to take another bus that will take you to Hidroelectrica, where the walk begins.

It is simple to know which is the path that takes you from Hidroelectrica to Aguas Calientes or Machu Picchu Pueblo, since you only have to follow the train tracks and you will reach your destination in two and a half hours. Once in Machu Picchu Pueblo, we recommend you to find a place to stay and recharge energy for the next day to visit Machu Picchu.

As we said before, the last section that leads from Machu Picchu Pueblo to the citadel can be done walking or by bus. If you feel strongly, we encourage you to do it on foot, the landscapes are exciting!

The price of this route does not usually exceed $50 round trip, much cheaper than the other ones!

As you can see, the trip to Machu Picchu has options for all types of trevelers but all of them with the same goal: discover one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

To accompany you in this adventure, in Tierra Viva we have hotels both in Cusco and in Machu Picchu Pueblo, as well as in the Sacred Valley. If you want to know them and make a reservation, just go to www.tierravivahoteles.com. We will be very happy to be part of your trip!

If Trujillo is known as the City of Eternal Spring, it is because the sun and good weather are part of this city practically all year round. Located on the Pacific coast, Trujillo, in addition to having an enviable temperature, has beautiful beaches where you want to stay all day to bathe for hours in its waters or to enjoy its waves on a surfboard.

If you are looking for a place to enjoy the best beaches during this summer, Trujillo is the perfect destination. Here we tell you the best beaches to visit in the City of Eternal Spring.

Huanchaco

Huanchaco beach, located only 13 km away from the city of Trujillo, is not only a place to enjoy the sun and the sea, but also to learn about the culture of this area of ​​our country. The totora horses, great protagonists of this beach, are still used by the people of the area to fish, make trips to tourists and even surf.

Huanchaco is undoubtedly the most important and tourist beach in the city of Trujillo, so here you will find many places to enjoy a day at the beach: from surf schools to restaurants with the best marine dishes.

Also, very close to Huanchaco is Chan Chan, the largest adobe citadel in America, which you can not miss during your visit.

Chicama (Puerto Malabrigo)

The beach of Chicama, located in Puerto Malabrigo an hour and a half from the city of Trujillo, has become in recent years the dreamed destination of surfers. The reason: here is the longest left wave in the world.

Thus, Chicama has reinvented itself and adapted in recent years to receive surfers from around the world who try to travel the 2.5 kilometers long this wave has.

In addition, this beach is the scene of various cultural and sports events in which homage is paid to the Moches, civilization that lived in this area during the 2nd and 5th centuries. It is also the ideal place to practice fishing.

Pacasmayo

The colonial architecture and the sea are mixed in this place creating a beautiful scenery. Pacasmayo is a fishing cove where the wind runs at a perfect speed to practice sports such as windsurfing or kitesurfing.

If you plan to visit this beach, we invite you to take a walk through the streets of the city to see its beautiful nineteenth century mansions, such as the House of Culture or Grace House.

Puerto Morin

In the opposite direction to the previous beaches and in a trip of 35 minutes to the south of Trujillo you will arrive at Puerto Morin, a bay of calm waters ideal to enjoy many hours of sea and sports such as surfing or kitesurfing.

In this place, in addition to one of the cleanest beaches in Peru, you will find several restaurants with delicious marine dishes such as the cangrejo reventado or sudado de chita.

Also, very close to Puerto Morin is Pur Pur, a high altitude dune where you can practice sandboarding.
