National Geographic magazine named the 5 best places for travelers to visit in Peru in a recent issue. The article, ¨Top 5 Places to Visit in Peru¨ presents Peru as a land of adventure for every pallet.
The article lists Lima as a must-see because of its unique connection the colonial history of Peru. Other locations include the city of Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.
The final location to make the list was the Peruvian Amazon because of the variety of activities and wildlife the region offers.
However, while many people agreed with the list, many others felt the list was rather homogenous, with three of the locations being from the Cusco region. Some felt that regions like Arequipa, Tumbes, and Puno deserved to be on the list.
