Why should you visit Peru

Hosts always offer their guests drinks (water, juice, soda, etc.) and may offer other refreshments, but declining them is not impolite. Though the practice is declining, it was once common for hosts to invite people visiting around 5:30 p.m. to stay for lonche, a light breakfast-type meal served around 6 p.m.

The population is largely concentrated in the west. Peru is divided into three distinct geographic regions: the narrow, dry coastal plain (costa) in the west; the tropical lowlands (selva) of the Amazon Basin to the east; and the high mountains (sierra) of the Andes roughly in the center.

Celebrations and Traditional music

In Peru about 3000 typical fiestas are celebrated every year. The majority of those are organized to celebrate the day of a santo patron (a saint). Those saints originally formed part of the Christian calendar in the Colonial Period but they were always mixed with the magical religion of the Andean regions. A good example of this “cultural syncretism” is the Festivity of Corpus Christi in Cusco. This religious day, originally introduced by the Spaniards, was accepted by the Peruvian inhabitants as for them it had little to do with Catholicism, so much more with an old Inca ritual. The Peru music is a fusion of sounds and styles drawing on Peru's Andean, Spanish, and African roots.
