Insight Guide Peru focuses comprehensively on one of the world's most spectacular countries. Full-color photos throughout combine with the lively text to help you get under the skin of this breath-taking destination - its people, ancient cultures and incredible natural diversity as well as its places. Our "Best of Peru" section outlines attractions and activities not to be missed, while features by local writers cover subjects from the obvious to the not-so-obvious: daily life in the Andes, music and dance, the wildlife of the Sierra and the adventure sports scene, but also witch doctors and mystical healing, jungle lodges and the foodie revolution.

Fourteen Places chapters then take you on an inspirational trip, from Lima and the highlands to the Amazonian region, the elegant cities of Arequipa of and Cusco, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley, heartland of the last Incas - with plentiful maps to show you the way around. Finally, the Travel Tips cover all your practical needs, with a wealth of information and listings.
