No longer a budget backpacker destination Cusco, the center of the great Inca empire, now offers everything to the luxury or budget traveler who wish to experience a higher level experience, fine breakfasts, private and personal service and travel assistance.

Ceviche must be tried in Lima, cuy in Cusco, lechon and mariscos in Arequipa.

Charming street side cafes and fine dining all add to the culinary adventure that Lima and Peru offer. Safe, upscale Miraflores with all its fine restaurants is a wonderful place to walk around walk with breathtaking vies overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
If you plan more time in Lima a day visit to nearby Barranco is a wonderful place to stop for ceviche and a Pisco sour while you contemplate the ocean, history, architecture and the local atmosphere.
