Mysterious, evocative, captivating, rich in pre-Hispanic and colonial history, Peru should be on the wish list of many an experienced traveller. Encapsulating many of the iconic sites that represent South America, as well as the much-loved Llama, this is a country for learning and exploring.  The massive Andes mountain range divides the country down the middle, with the dense jungle of the Amazon Basin on one side, the sandy desert edging the coast on the other and Central Sierra, home to Andean farmers and providing a fascinating glimpse of rural Peru, in the middle.
