Don’t miss a Colourful experience exploring Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu and Tambopata National Park.

A long time ago, Cusco’s Main Square was the central point of the Inca Empire. The four roads that linked the whole Inca Empire met at this point. The Inca Empire spread from Ecuador, part of Colombia to the north of Chile and Argentina and included the entire territories of Peru and Bolivia. The ruins, temples, churches, mansions and the varied architecture make Cusco a showcase that displays all the cultures and eras from our country: Pre-Inca, Inca, Colonial and Republican.

Cusco is an unforgettable destination, full of history and culture and a splendid heritage. It is a mandatory destination for everyone visiting Peru.

Cusco is as well the starting point for the tours to the Machu Picchu Inca citadel.

Travelling to Tambopata National Reserve offers a unique opportunity to discover a lively biodiversity of birds, mammals, reptiles and trees. Record-setting numbers of animal species are concentrated within small areas, and the variety of plant life is greater than almost anywhere in the world. To help you experience the wonder of this magic place, we have prepared a programmed itinerary for your stay at Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion.

Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu and Tambopata are a great mix to know the Peruvian Coast, Andes and Rainforest.

**All our programs can be modified according to your requirements on duration, interests, activities, flight reservations or other additional destinations.**

Useful Info

CLIMATE

The climate in Peru can be divided by zones: the western Andes that has a dry and cold climate in winter and its very rainy during the summer. The rainforest that has a hot, wet and rainy climate and the desert coast with a warm climate without regular rainfall.

Cusco has a mild climate with temperatures that go from 14 ºC to 16ºC with warm days and cold nights. The rainy season is from December to March.

Machu Picchu has a semi-tropical climate with warm days and cold nights. The rainy season is from November to April.

Tambopata has a warm and rainy climate throughout the year. The temperature can decrease in June and July because of the “friaje” (cold wave) due to the southern winds.

The weather doesn’t hold the trip back in general, except when the “El Niño” phenomenon is very aggressive.

HEALTH
The Peruvian Andes are at high altitudes, so it is necessary to take precautions to avoid altitude sickness or “soroche”. It is important to rest a few hours, to walk slowly and to eat light before beginning any tour. We also recommend drinking coca tea that helps with acclimatization. Even though water is potable in most cities, it is advisable to drink bottled water to avoid any problems.

VISA
To know if you need a visa to enter Peru, please go to the closest consulate since the requirement may vary at any moment. For more information, please go to:

Visa types to enter Peru

LANGUAGE
Peru’s official language is Spanish, which is spoken by 80% of the population. However, there is a large portion of the population that speaks Quechua and Aymara (especially in the Peruvian Andes). Moreover, we can find 55 dialects in the Amazonian rainforest.

ELECTRICAL CURRENT
Electricity in Peru is 220 Volts and 60 Hertz. In some hotels, you may find dual voltage outlets, however, we suggest checking your appliances’ voltage and take precautions by having a power adapter or converter.

PERUVIAN GASTRONOMY
During the last years, the Peruvian gastronomy has become famous because of its variety and exquisiteness. Among the most known dishes you can find the ceviche, a dish made of fish and seafood marinated in lemon juice.

There is a new gastronomy trend in Cusco called “novoandina”. The novoandina cuisine is based on the creation of new dishes using local ingredients such as quinoa, quiwicha, potato, alpaca and trout. This way, we have dishes such as alpaca tenderloin with “quinotto” (risotto made of quinoa instead of rice) or grilled trout with sautéed vegetables and native potatoes.

Restaurants during your trip:
Cusco: international, local and vegetarian food restaurants.
Aguas Calientes: international and local food restaurants.
Tambopata: all meals will be provided by the lodge.

IMPORTANT
Colourful Peru reserves the right to make any changes without prior notice due to weather conditions, river levels, transport departures or arrivals, etc., to assure a better development of your trip’s operation.

FOR THE RAINFOREST

Yellow Fever Vaccine:
We recommend receiving the yellow fever vaccine at least 10 days before your arrival to the rainforest. It is a must to have the vaccination certificate during your trip.

ABOUT TAMBOPATA
Tambopata is located in the lower rainforest above the Ecuador’s south. It has a dry and cold climate during winter (from May to October), which is the best time of the year to go. During the day, the temperature is between 25 ºC and 31ºC and during the night it is between 16ºC and 22ºC.

In the winter, the temperatures descend to 9°C in the day and 5°C at night due to the friaje (cold wave) that comes from Argentina, so we suggest being ready for cold temperatures and light drizzles. The rainy season is from November to April. Heavy rains might last hours or even days.

IMPORTANT:
We ask the visitors to carry hand-luggage that doesn’t exceed 15 kilos (32 pounds) since it will be carried by hand from the boats to their room.
