Peru is located in the west central part of South America. It encompasses an area of 498,222 square miles (1‘285, 215 km2) and can be compared in size to Spain, France and Portugal. In South America, only Brazil and Argentina are larger. Peru is the 19th largest country in the world.
The diverse geography of Peru is such that most travel between different regions and cities needs to be by air. Nevertheless, for pleasure and to enjoy the scenery, in some cases trips can be made by land, train or boat.
What Peru has to offer
Because of its geographic position and its tropical location, the presence of the Andes and both the Humboldt and El Niño currents, Peru is the earth’s most ecologically diverse country.
