Facts about Peru


Peru is well known for its ancient history which encompasses archeology, ruins, dusty remnants, and museums. This makes visitors in Peru feel a little closer to the past after leaving the country. There are close to 5,000 archeological sites in the country and the existence of many of them still remain a mystery to the ordinary eyes. Peru is also very popular for its' biodiversity and natural resources. The country has 158 protected natural parks and  84 of the 117 life zones around the world. Parks and nature reserves around the country are home to one-third of the world’s species of birds, 3,500 species of reptiles, 4,000 types of butterflies, pink dolphins, jaguars, and other primates. Tourists also have the luxury of visiting attractive beach resorts and attending festivals during their time in the country.


The tourism industry in Peru is the third-largest industry in Peru, besides the fishing and mining industries. Peru is one of the most visited countries in South America and, as a result, tourism in Peru is growing faster than in other countries on the continent. The annual growth rate of the industry is in fact estimated to be at 25% for the past five years.


Drug-related crimes are harshly treated as drug-smugglers are made to face long prison sentences. The majority of the products made with animals or plants are made from illegal means and could involve protected or endangered species. Tourists are advised not to buy any products made with animals and plants. It is also illegal for artifacts to be exported.
