Peru has long been a popular destination for trekking enthusiasts and history buffs but including it in a family holiday to Latin America will make it the trip of a lifetime for all the family. In just 2 weeks it is possible to take in all the highlights and still have time to relax. A train to Machu Picchu is an exciting journey, no matter what your age, and the first glimpse of the lost city surrounded by verdant forest is a thrilling sight. In contrast, the northern areas of Peru are dry, desert like and filled with fun activities such as sand boarding and racing across the dunes in buggies. The coastlines offer beaches which boast world class surfing and on the Ballestas Islands you can get up close and personal with wildlife such as sea lions and penguins. As if all that isn’t exciting enough, Peru also has its own slice of the Amazon rainforest where children will love spotting weird and wonderful bugs, colourful birds and monkeys in the trees. The whole family is guaranteed to come away with wonderful memories to treasure, just don’t forget to take that llama selfie!
