Undecided still, about where to spend this year’s Christmas or New Years’ Eve? Why don’t you come and visit Peru? Wouldn’t it be fabulous to wake up on Christmas morning to see the amazing sunrise at the old Inca ruins of Machu Picchu? Booking your tour to Peru and to Machu Picchu in December, this becomes a reality.

The amazing town of Cusco
The city of Cusco, capital of the old Inca Empire, is an amazing experience at only an hour flight from the Peruvian capital Lima. While you get acclimatized to the altitude of the Peruvian Andean highlands, you enjoy the magical Christmas atmosphere in the cobble stoned streets of Cusco full of restaurants, shops and cafes.  The Christmas atmosphere in Cusco is cheerful and magical. The highlight is definitely the Santurantikuy Christmas Fair held yearly at the Plaza de Armas in Cusco, the main square and the heart of the city. Here you will find the local people selling their typical Peruvian Christmas decorations. Well worth a visit!  And of course there is much more to do for Christmas in Cusco.

New Year Celebration in Peru

With the new year coming so close now, people all over the world are preparing New Year Celebrations for December 31.  As many other countries, Peru has its own, typical rituals and superstitions to dismiss the old year and to welcome the New Year with new hopes and new plans and projects.

In Peru, on New Year’s Eve, many people attend a party somewhere in town while others receive the New Year at home with friends and family. After a delicious dinner and a few minutes before midnight, the radio stations and Peruvian television announce and finally start the countdown. When clock strikes Midnight everyone hugs and kisses each other with good wishes and either champagne, wine or, Pisco sour, all with loud music, fireworks, firecrackers and rockets at the background.

Unlike the Christmas dinner, a typical Peruvian New Year dinner is very varied and lasts for several hours. They are usually large banquets where the favorite dishes are turkey and pork in the oven, accompanied by a variety of salads and rice.
