The Secrets of Peruvian Ceviche

When travelling in Peru, you cannot ignore it: you will probably hear about the dish ceviche, or find it on the menu of any restaurant. It is one of the most famous Peruvian dishes based on raw fish marinated in lemon juice. For every fish- or non-fish-lover the dish is worth a try!

Learn about the Secrets of Peruvian Ceviche.

The origin and tradition

Ceviche is a very well-known and popular dish in the Spanish-speaking countries of South-America. Its origin presumably comes from the first inhabitants in the North of what is now Peru and the limes were introduced by the Spaniards. Ceviche is a dish often eaten during lunch or brunch, because it is such a light meal with a refreshing taste. Also, this dish is very popular on the beach and in the capital Lima.

From that point on, the Incan cuisine was wonderfully fused with European sensibilities from France, Germany, and Italy as well as with deliciousness from Asia and West Africa.

5 green, Fair and Local choices for Travelers in Cusco

The city of Cusco is a hotspot for touristic activity in Peru. Being the ancient center of the Inca Empire of Peru, it today combines culture, history and a modern way of living in itself. Every year around 1 million tourists come to the city of Cusco to explore the city and the surrouddings with the City Tour, or the Sacred Valley Tour. Or they scroll on the streets, visit museums, and explore Machu Picchu by train or by doing a trek such as the Inca Trail or the Salkantay Trek……. and they enjoy the local, colourful festivals.
