En este recorrido de una semana por la "Tierra de los Tesoros Escondidos", experimentará todo, desde la ciudad capital de Perú, Lima (la "Ciudad de los Reyes"), hasta las enigmáticas Líneas de Nazca, las Islas Ballestas parecidas a Galápagos, el Cusco colonial y finalmente la ciudadela de Machu Picchu. En Lima, experimentará una combinación inmejorable de lo antiguo y lo moderno: visitará antiguos sitios arqueológicos incas, joyas de la época colonial como la Catedral y distritos modernos de lujo como Miraflores y San Isidro. Viajando a la árida región de Nazca, podrás presenciar, maravillarte y contemplar las enormes representaciones de patrones geométricos, animales, figuras humanas y miles de líneas perfectamente rectas que se extienden a lo largo de kilómetros. Dirigiéndose a las Islas Ballestas, ese grupo de islas rocosas ubicadas frente a la costa del Pacífico cerca de la ciudad de Paracas, navegará en lancha hacia lo que se ha denominado las "Galápagos del hombre pobre", ya que estas islas también albergan miles de aves y mamíferos, incluidos pingüinos, leones marinos, charranes incas y pelícanos. Un destino completamente diferente te esperará en la antigua y colonial ciudad de Cusco. Aún conocida como la “Ciudad Sagrada de los Incas”, descubrirá las murallas incas en las calles de este centro urbano que es cosmopolita al extremo -como lo notará a través de la gran variedad de restaurantes y tiendas- y al mismo tiempo rebosa de fina plazas coloniales, espléndidas iglesias y sorprendente arquitectura republicana. Finalmente, completarás esta peregrinación con tu viaje a la ciudadela de Machu Picchu, el Santo Grial de los viajeros del mundo. Después de visitar la enigmática ciudad perdida de Machu Picchu, el sitio arqueológico más famoso de toda América del Sur, regresará a casa con una nueva perspectiva de la humanidad y de usted mismo.

Itinerario Detallado

Arrival in Lima – Lima City Tour

AM: Upon your arrival at the Lima airport, a host will meet you and drive you to your hotel.

PM: In the afternoon, we will begin our tour of Lima with a visit to the famous Parque del amor (“Love Park”) situated in the upmarket Miraflores district; this area also has a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Afterwards, we will visit Huaca Pucllana, an archeological site constructed in the 4th century A.D. Here, you can observe the world-famous pyramid structures, typical of the pre-Columbian epoch, situated off the coast of Peru. Then we will visit the traditional residential area of San Isidro, where the scenic El Olivar Park is located. The tour will then continue with a visit to Lima’s historic district, with its striking republican architecture and colonial-era mansions with their Moorish balconies. We will enter the San Francisco convent, which houses the largest display of colonial religious art in the Americas, and also visit its subterranean crypts, which are considered catacombs by some due to their similarity to the Roman catacombs. After this, we will visit the Main Square, the Archiepiscopal Palace, the Cathedral and the Municipal Palace. Afterwards, you will be taken back to your hotel, where you will spend the night.

AM: Following breakfast at your hotel, you will be driven to the bus station to begin your scenic trip to the town of Nazca, situated to the south of Lima.

PM: Upon our arrival, you will be welcomed and driven to your hotel for the night.

AM: After breakfast at your hotel, you will be driven to the aerodrome to board a light aircraft and fly over the mysterious Nazca Lines. Also known as “geoglyphs,” these gigantic geometrical figures consist of outlines of animals, plants, objects, human beings and deities. The immense lines and drawings that are found in Nazca are one of the most inexplicable enigmas of our continent’s archeology. Your pilot will provide a short explanation.

PM: This afternoon, you will travel by bus to the coastal town of Paracas, where you will be welcomed and driven to your selected hotel.

AM: After an early breakfast at your hotel, you will board a motorboat for a marine excursion to the Ballestas Islands. During this extraordinary adventure, you will view the famous “Candelabro,” an enigmatic design in a hill of sand that faces the Nazca plain. Once you land on the islands, you will enjoy the marine wildlife refuge, as the Ballestas Islands are inhabited by sea lions and a variety of birds that survive off of the abundant marine life of the Pacific Ocean. This will be an opportunity for you to get in tune with nature as you listen to the diverse sounds of the area’s sea lions and birds – particularly the Humboldt penguins, the only species of penguin that inhabits Peru. Later you will return to the wharf.

PM: During the afternoon, you will head out by bus to Lima. Upon your arrival, you will be met and driven to your selected hotel.

AM: Following breakfast at your hotel in Lima, you will be driven to the airport for your flight to the city of Cusco. Upon landing, you will be met and driven to your selected hotel, where you will be welcomed with a traditional mate de coca, a typical infusion that helps one to the city’s high altitude. The rest of the morning will be at your leisure, giving you time to rest or explore.

PM: This afternoon, we will go on a tour of imperial Cusco, visiting some of the best archeological remains of Inca times in areas in and around the city. We will visit sites such as Qoricancha, “the Temple of the Sun”; the Sacsayhuaman temple and fortress; Qenqo, with its passageways and canals; Puca Pucará, an Inca storehouse; and Tambomachay, the place of the water rituals. Returning to Cusco, you will also have a chance to visit some great colonial sites, such as the Cathedral, which is famous for its baroque style with inlaid gold and silver.

AM: After breakfast at your hotel, you will be accompanied to the Ollantaytambo train station, where trains depart for Machu Picchu City (a.k.a. “Aguas Calientes”). After a two-hour trip, we will head to the bus station for a 30-minute ride up the mountain to reach the entry of the fabulous citadel of Machu Picchu. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World,” we will begin our tour of this citadel, admiring its steps, temples, sanctuaries and terraces. There is still no known explanation as to how the Incas could move 20-ton stones to the top of Machu Picchu, making this a uniquely spiritual as well as a beautiful site.

PM: We will then have lunch and return to Cusco in the afternoon.

AM: Following breakfast at your hotel, you will be driven to the airport in Cusco for your return flight to Lima.
