Peru: a Family Destination

Discover what makes Peru a destination for the entire family!

Imagine a family trip to Peru. Here you will find a natural landscape like no place else, diverse ancient cultures, and a history that is endlessly fascinating.  Peru is a destination that inspires travelers to embrace the authentic local culture, to taste something of Peruvian life as it is actually lived. That is why the Land of the Incas is such a special place to explore with your family, so you can together discover the wondrous diversity of experiences it offers its guests. 

But why is it so special as a family destination? Because children of all ages will find endless sources of inspiration and learning in its nature, culture, and history. This is a land that fires the imagination. Children will strengthen their ability ​​to appreciate and respect their surroundings while gathering memories sure to last a lifetime.

And, best of all, they will do it together with their family through fun, adventure, and interaction with people from a culture different from their own. Bring them to surf spectacular waves on the coast and then learn to prepare ceviche. Take them to do sandboarding and explore one of the driest deserts in the world by buggy. Go up to the Andes and get closer to the sky than ever before to visit the wonderful Andean communities who live there. Show them the fascinating prehispanic archeological sites that are spread across this miraculous land, and at the end go down to the Amazon rainforest in search of wildlife in the most biodiverse place on the planet.

Also, this is the perfect destination for teaching your children green values and how they can travel ethically. In Peru, people are increasingly engaged in conservation, so we ask you to be a RESPONSible traveler and respect our nature, our culture, our people, and help us keep improving as a country. 

This is why RESPONSible Travel Peru was established: to share our travel and planning knowledge so guests can enjoy the best of Peru while minimizing their visit’s environmental and cultural impacts and maximizing the economic and social ones. 

We go a step further. We are committed to assisting our travelers so that they leave a positive mark on the country we love so dearly. We welcome our guests into the world of conservation and sustainability to actively contribute to the development of Peru.
