Peru is a growing tourist destination. Machu Picchu, the so-called Lost City of the Incas, is the biggest draw, with more than 850,000 visitors last year. As explorers who care, we want to share with you some useful travel tips, to make your stay in Peru a more rewarding experience.
Respect the Earth. Leave only footprints; take only pictures.
To make your travels more meaningful, learn as much as you can about the geography, customs, manners and cultures of the region.
Do not buy products made from endangered plants or animals.
Always follow designated trails.
Learn about and support conservation-oriented programs and organizations working to preserve the environment.
Whenever possible, walk or utilize environmentally sound methods of transportation.
