The Unexplored North - Peru Travel Itinerary

I love Northern Peru and recommend it to everyone heading to South America. It's often overlooked but is a budget traveler's goldmine with access to archeological sites, great beaches and the birthplace of ceviche. Unfortunately most travelers miss out on half the country by flying into Lima and only traveling South. But the Inca history didn't stop in Cuzco! The North is home to Incan ruins and the civilizations that came before them. For those looking to learn, spend some time surfing and eat great food Northern Peru offers it all at a fraction of the price elsewhere in the country. Check out our Northern Peru Itinerary
