For those who enjoy the quirkier side of life, Peru has just what you’re looking for. Llamas and Alpaca are like squirrels here, roaming the land and can be found almost everywhere. They make perfect subjects for photos, adding a cute and goofy flair. Lake Titicaca mounts the border between Peru and Bolivia, and despite it’s somewhat silly sounding name, boasts the world’s highest navigable body of water and is said to be the birthplace of the Incas themselves. The reflective, still waters are home to the man made floating reed islands, still inhabited today.

The Dry Season is Gorgeous
From May to September, Peru experiences the dry season. The sun is beaming and flora is blossoming, making travel and outdoor activities even more enjoyable. Basking in the sun’s rays, leisurely exploring and spending time gazing at the clouds are a nice reprieve from the humdrum of daily life.
