Peru is by far the most interesting country in South America or even Latin America with regards to cultural diversity and has much more activities to offer than just seeing the Andean mountains and the Inca ruins. Peru is the cradle of the great Amazon River and the biggest part of Peru consists of rainforest. Peru also has a really rich history with a lot of pre-Columbian cultures including Moche, Sican, Sipan, Nasca, Chachapoyas to name a few. All of these cultures have left their mark…ruins and relics, especially on the coast and in the North of Peru.
