Our guide on where to stay in Peru

The South American country of Peru is a bucket-list destination for many travelers, with everything from stunning natural scenery and ancient ruins to cities with historic landmarks and some of the world’s best food. While many come to experience the incredible lost Incan city of Machu Picchu, there are a wide range of places to visit from the spectacular coastline with its beach resorts to the dramatic Andes that host mountain resorts and the Peruvian Amazon with remote lodges. Before deciding where to stay you’ll want to prioritize the things you want to do, whether it’s treks through the jungle with unique wildlife like monkeys, sloths, and colorful birds, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or exploring the indigenous communities on the floating islands of Lake Titicaca. You might want to mix up outdoor adventure with time spent in exciting cities like Lima which has become renowned as a top foodie spot while offering buzzing nightlife and impressive architecture.

Accommodation options run the gamut in Peru with something for just about every budget from economical guesthouses to luxurious resorts. Cusco and Limo have the most extensive choices when it comes to hotels in Peru, although four- and five-star properties can be found in the Sacred Valley, Colca Canyon, Puno, and Arequipa, among others. There are many sustainable, eco-focused resorts so you can feel better about your stay, often found in rural areas, including several in the Amazon. Most provide free Wi-Fi, although some in the very remote areas provide the chance to immerse yourself in nature and forget about the “real” world for a while by disconnecting.

My love for South America started when I was living in Lima, Peru, and family and friends came to visit. That year I went to Machu Picchu 5 times! I do not have one drop of Latin blood in me, which is painfully obvious if you see me dance, and yet without realizing it for the past 15 years South America has been my home.
