Peru is a South American country with so much amazing history and such incredible landscapes. It's hard to decide what to do! For us, the Salineras de Maras and Moray sites about 50 kilometers northwest of Cusco are an ABSOLUTE MUST! Not only are they beautiful and unique, but they are brilliant technological innovations.
Our trip to Peru began in the city of Cusco, but due to the high altitude (over 11k feet above sea level!) it was suggested to us to travel down in altitude so that we could acclimate to the altitude without getting altitude sickness. (Tip: Get the altitude medication BEFORE you leave the states! This helps your body to prepare for the incline and it helped us tremendously).
