Famed for Machu Picchu and its Incan ruins, there’s much more to Peru than meets the eye. Sit back with a drink and watch the sunset from the Pacific cliffs of the capital city Lima, and surf on sand dunes in Huacachina, from where the sand in your hair will serve as a souvenir for days. Take the buses, so that you can stop by the Nazca Lines, and take flights too, so that you can see the Andes from above. Peru is hard to forget.

How to Go Sandboarding in Peru
Going sandboarding in Peru is what we thought was a once-in-a-lifetime experience - that is, until we both did it twice! After going sandboarding and dunebuggying, watching the sun set from the top of a dune in the Peruvian desert is awesome!
How to Discover Lima's Chinatown
Lima's Chinatown (known as Barrio Chino) is an interesting mix of cultures, and has a history that dates to the 1860s. We explored the options for eating and found chifa cuisine in a back alley of Calle Capon.
