Lima, Peru's capital was once reputed to be the most beautiful city in Spanish America. Lima today retains much of its charm, despite its rather shapeless expanse of modern suburbs and dusty shantytowns that run for miles in each direction along the Panamerican Highway.
One of the truly pristine areas of the tropics is located in Peru's southernmost jungle department of Madre de Dios. At 4.5 million acres, the National Park of Manu is one of the best areas in the Amazon rainforest for watching wildlife.
The Panamerican highway hugs the coast and passes through many areas of interest south of Lima, including Pisco, an important fishing port (best known for its white grape brandy), used by travelers as a base to see the wildlife of the nearby Islas Ballestas and Península de Paracas.
