Peru is one of the most visually blessed countries in South America. This nation not only has some of the most gorgeous places in the world, but it also has a cultural heritage that’s been gaining fame each year. For that reason, you should plan your trip to this country very carefully and in advance, so that you have time to visit everything. Plus, by planning carefully you also have time to apply for the Peru Affidavit, an online document necessary to enter the country. This document was launched as a result of the pandemic that arose from COVID-19. The Peru Affidavit is easy to obtain with iVisa.com because it only requires you to fill out an online form in a few minutes. Keep in mind that this way, you receive the Peru Affidavit by email, so you can store it on your cell phone or mobile device on the day of your trip. By having your passport, your Peru Affidavit, your luggage, and your trip arrangement ready, you can now enjoy the beauty that Peru has to offer. Peru is one of the best places to go on vacation. It’s mainly engaging in what’s called cultural tourism, and that’s actually the largest sector in the country’s tourism industry. In this country, you can find a lot of remains of civilizations that lived in the Pre-Columbian era, including the Chavin, Moche, Nasca, and Inca. The archaeological impact alone is enough for cultural tourism to grow in the country. Perhaps the most memorable archaeological treasure is the ancient city Macchu Picchu. This place is located in Southern Peru, in the Eastern Cordillera. It was probably built before the 15th century, and it’s locally known as a llaqta, a Quechua word for an ancient Andean Inca town. Fascinating facts about this place are still being discovered, but what’s known so far is that it was a religious sanctuary and the home of important Inca emperors. Keep in mind that before visiting this place or any other side in Peru, you have to apply for your Peru Affidavit on time. Peru is more than Macchu Picchu. A place that always attracts visitors is the Nazca Lines (or Nasca Lines), located in Southern Peru. This place covers an area of more than 1000 square kilometers. The lines define more than 300 giant shapes or geoglyphs, some of them are The Condor, The Hummingbird, The Tree, The Monkey, and the Spider. These shapes are hard to see if you’re on the same level as them, which is why there are many planes ready to help you with that. These figures can only be seen on an airplane or atop nearby hills and mountains. As you will notice, there are many ruins and tourist places that represent the pre-Columbian population of Peru. You can find several of them in Cuzco, especially if you want to continue learning more about the Incas. Even so, as you read before, not only the Incas stood out in this Country. That’s why many travelers end up fascinated when exploring this country because it has a lot of variety in its ancient civilizations. However, not only the pre-Columbian civilizations attract visitors to Peru. There are a lot of colonial architectural wonders that are still visible even in present-day Peru, with the most remarkable in the cities of Arequipa, Cuzco, and Lima. Some of them were built more than 500 years ago, and they show the creativity and talent of the Spanish colonists during their control of Peru. These architectural knowledge have survived the test of time and the buildings are still standing for those who visit Peru, and many of them have been recovered from a crumbling state. Many museums showcase the mixed nature of Peruvian culture and history, and you can explore most of them in Lima. It’s not a lie that this city has many historical spots and museums, some of them being the Rafael Larco Herrera Archeological Museum, the Museum of Italian Art, the National Museum of Peruvian Culture, and the National Museum of Anthropology, Archeology, and History. Don’t forget that if you want to explore these museums and other places in Peru, you have to apply for the Peru Affidavit. You can find the Peru Affidavit application form on our website located at iVisa.com and you can complete it in a few minutes. Outside Lima, there are other important museums like the Regional Museum of the National University of San Martin located in Tarapoto, or the famous Royal Tombs of Sipán Museum in Lambayeque, to name a few. Peru also has strong ecotourism. That shouldn’t be a surprise since three-quarters of the Peruvian land area is dominated by the Amazon rainforest. Also, 60% of all land in the country is located within the Amazon Basin. This means that most of the land is protected as national parks and environmental reserves, with a higher percentage than any nation on Earth. The Peruvian Amazon is one of the most untouched areas in the world, with pristine rivers and tributaries, and also a lot of virgin forests. The beauty of this region makes it one of the most popular destinations for tourists and visitors who are interested in the ecology of the rainforest and in communing with nature. Even with all that, a million hectares of the same rainforest have been reduced to stumps and burned remnants over a period of 15 years. The main causes for the collapse of this section of the rainforest are deforestation, agriculture, conversion of the land for livestock pasture, mining for gold, degradation of the soil, and construction of roads. However, the Peruvian authorities keep doing the best possible to preserve the diversity and nature of this region. If you visit the Peruvian Amazon rainforest, you’ll discover that it’s divided into the Lower Jungle and the High Jungle. Don’t worry about learning how to differentiate them, as your local guide will help you with that. What you should notice is that this place has a high biodiversity index, with a great number of species that can be found nowhere else in the world. As for the national parks and reserves, you cannot forget to visit the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, Tambopata-Candamo Protected Area, Rio Abiseo National Park, and Manú National Park. Peru stands out as a country of ‘coast, jungle and mountains’. The sierra is one of the most impressive areas for any adventurer, especially since this country has the mountain range of the Andes, boasting some of the most amazing and beautiful spots in South America. This mountain range is home to a number of tall waterfalls and stunning peaks like Huascaran, the fourth highest peak in the Americas and highest in Peru. By the way, thanks to this mountain, you can now visit the famous Huascarán National Park, one of the World Heritage Sites since 1985. No matter what you decide to visit in Peru, don't forget that it’s still mandatory to have a Peru Affidavit before entering. We recommend you apply for the Peru Affidavit before planning the rest of your trip, in order to ensure your entry into the country. As for the coast, you can always enjoy the pristine waters of Punta Sal and Mancora beach areas. Or, if you prefer shopping centers and bars, you can also visit Asia in Southern Lima. What you cannot forget when visiting Peru is eating. Gastronomic tourism is popular with visitors trying out the different dishes in Peruvian cuisine, with its origins in Spanish cuisine and infused with delicious Peruvian ingredients and spices. You’ll always find a good place to eat in this country. You can try the classic ceviche, or experience other delicacies such as the ‘causa rellena’, the ‘lomo saltado’, Peruvian rice with chicken, Peruvian pork rind, or even exquisite desserts such as the purple mazamorra and the ‘suspiro a la limeña’. Just remember to apply for your Peru Affidavit on time to avoid any issues at the airport. We invite you to use our website to get your Peru Affidavit as fast as possible and take the next plane to Peru!
