7 Things To Do in Peru (That Aren't Machu Picchu)

7. Sandboarding and racing dune buggies in Huacachina
This hidden oasis provides ample opportunity for adrenaline-junkies and thrill seekers to explore. Just four hours south of Lima, travellers can begin their day by boarding down sand dunes or racing across the desert in dune buggies for a truly exhilarating experience.

6. Explore the Peruvian Amazon
Considered to be less popular than its Brazilian counterpart, the Peruvian Amazon is home to a diverse wildlife population and winding rivers that you need to visit while in Peru. To access the diverse jungle terrain, you can take a flight from the city of Puerto Maldonado with flights leaving daily from Cusco and Lima. And the good news? Tours through the Amazon on the Peru side are significantly cheaper – meaning you can save your dollars for a bonus round of pisco sours.

5. Go deep into Colca Canyon
When in Peru, make time to visit one of the deepest and most spectacular canyons in the world, the Colca Canyon. Accessible from Peru’s second largest city, Arequipa, the Colca Canyon is Peru’s third most-visited attraction yet many hikers seem to skip this impressive site. Don’t make the same mistake as those hikers and add a trip to the Colca Canyon to your itinerary. Also, if you’re still yet to be impressed, the Colca Canyon is actually twice as deep as the United States’ Grand Canyon. See for yourself how it compares.

4. Embrace the serenity of Lake Sandoval
Lake Sandoval is part of the Madre de Dios region of Peru, which is part of the Amazon basin. To reach this majestic site, you can start your hike near Mare de Dios River and marvel at the impressive wildlife including parrots, macaws and other exciting creatures. Once you arrive, you will be greeted by an unforgettable sunset.

3. Taste the mineral-rich salts of Maras
Just outside of Cusco you will find the town of Maras which is held in high esteem across the world for its impressive collection of salt mines that date back to the Inca times. Here, you will find thousands of salt pools that make up the hillside that build an intricate network of channels that feed spring water into the ponds. For a small fee, you can taste the warm water and sample some of the finest salt in the world. The mineral rich salt is great for cooking and is believed to help reduce stress.

2. Walk the streets of Arequipa
You’ve heard all about Cusco and Lima, but what do you really know about Arequipa? This city is filled with charming baroque architecture built from white volcanic stone. Surrounded by breathtaking volcanoes, Arequipa has well and truly earned its place as a UNESCO World Heritage destination.

1. Do as the Peruvians do in Huilloc
There’s a reason why we saved the best until the very end. To wrap up your time in Peru, there’s no better way to experience Peru than by immersing yourself in local culture. Make time for a visit to the Quechua village of Hilloc and learn more about the fine art weaving from the female villagers who have been perfecting the craft since a young age. Then, sit down for a pachamanca lunch where stones and grass are used to cook cuy (guinea pig), fava beans and potatoes using traditional cooking methods. The hospitality and generosity of the Quehchea villagers will leave you feeling humbled and grateful for the experience.

Places to visit in Peru aside from Machu Picchu 2020

When we think about Peru, we think Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain. Many people skip places like Huaraz, the great outdoors of the north where beautiful lakes and mountains are abundant. Paracas and Huacachina in the center are also often skipped. Much more, the Sacred Valley of Peru which is the gift from the Incas.

These are the places you should visit in Peru in 2020 aside from Machu Picchu and the Rainbow Mountain!

What NOT to do in LIMA, PERU

If you're planning to visit Lima, Peru, there are some important things you should know. [Peru travel 2019]
►The travel credit card we use:

After traveling in Mexico for about 15 months, we decided it was time to visit another Spanish-speaking country. When some airplane tickets to Lima, Peru went on sale, we couldn't pass up the opportunity! That's what originally brought us to Lima where we experienced a bit of culture shock and made a few mistakes during our trip.

In this Lima 2019 vlog, we decided to share the biggest mistakes we think travelers are likely to make in the city. In this travel vlog, we talk about the biggest mistakes you can make in Lima, including:

- A common Lima candy you shouldn't take back on the plane;
- The local currency and how you can pay;
- The price of transportation in Lima and which is the best option to choose;
- A local beverage you should be very careful with;
- The tipping culture and what's expected;
- A big mistake you can make with Peruvian food;
- What the seasons are like in Peru;
- Heating and cooling in Lima homes;
- What the driving is like in the city;
- A big mistake you can make while walking around Lima;
- And more!

Some of these mistakes we made ourselves, and others are details about Peru or traveling in Lima that you might easily overlook. Even if you ask lots of questions and do tons of research before traveling to Lima, not knowing these helpful facts might make your trip less desirable.

We hope this information and our tips help you in your Lima, Peru 2019 travels! Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments.

In January 2018, we sold everything we owned in the US (except our husky Laska & what fit in our tiny, tangerine Prius C3) to travel the world—starting with Mexico. Since then, we've been making travel videos about our life in Mexico and the new experiences we encounter while traveling the world.

Why You Should Travel to Peru by TourRadar

Are you seeking steep treks to conquer? Craving Peruvian delicacies such as cuy? Dreaming of adventure activities such as biking, riding and surfing? Are you on a tight budget? If yes, look no further than a journey to Peru. Explore the picturesque and historic sights of Peru including the magnificent ruins of Machu Picchu to Sandoval Lake, or the desert oasis of Huacachina. This impressive destination has something for everyone.

Before you start planning your journey to Peru, there are a few things you need to know about health and safety. If you’re travelling anywhere near the Amazon, it’s imperative that you get yourself vaccinated for Yellow Fever and take some malaria medication. As for altitude sickness, if you’re trekking to Machu Picchu, you will need to allow for a few days in Cusco to adjust to the lower levels of oxygen found at high altitudes.

If you want to learn more about conquering altitude sickness and what to pack, take a look at our guide to trekking Machu Picchu here:

As you’re researching and considering a trip to Peru, it is likely that your mind will wander to the question of whether it’s safe to visit. Fear not, as Peru is most definitely a safe destination, even for solo travellers. In Peru the crime rate is relatively low, with pickpocketing being the most common problem that travellers will encounter. As long as you employ basic travel precautions and keep your wit’s about you should reduce the likelihood of any unfriendly or dangerous encounters.

To make the most of your next adventure to Peru, consider booking a tour to ensure your trip is fun, informative and hassle-free:

Next, comes the best part – planning your itinerary. Naturally, most travellers will want to visit Machu Picchu, and for good reason, but there are a few more destinations you need to visit. At the Colca Canyon, you can explore the deep river canyons where you can enjoy a spot of rafting or go trekking through the diverse terrain of the surrounding area. Next, make time to visit Lake Sandoval where you will find a large jungle lake surrounded by different types of rainforest and wildlife. Another notable destination is Huacachina, a desert oasis surrounded by palm trees and believed to host therapeutic properties. Each of these astounding destinations will leave you with lasting memories.

Once you’ve decided where to go, the next most important part of the equation is when you should jump on a plane to Peru. If trekking is the number one reason for you to visit Peru, the best time to travel is during July to August when the weather is at its finest. If possible, avoid the rainy season from December to January as some roads and trails may be subject to severe flooding. If trekking is not for you, you can still travel through the rainy season but just make sure you pack your best waterproof gear.

By now you’re probably feeling eager and excited to learn more about Peru. The good news? It doesn't end here. Continue watching another one of our videos or visit us on Days to Come.
