Peru, land of the Incas, has a large history of ancestral cultures like Paracas, Chavin, Mochica, Wary and Inca among others with much wisdom and mystery that will transform you. Peru offers newlyweds luxury hotels on beautiful beaches, the exotic jungle and the majestic Peruvian highlands,´Sierra´.
If you are an adventurous couple you can maximize your adventure and fun during your trip with sports like Biking, Ziplining, Rafting and Hiking with exotic and spectacular views. If you like to eat, Peru has one of the best cuisines in the world.
Start your Love History in Lima
I recommend spending a couple of nights in Lima to get to know ´The Kings City´ and its wonderful cuisine. You must visit Miraflores and Barranco district, enjoy the views of the Pacific ocean. Don't miss "El Circuito Magico del Agua", the perfect setting for a romantic evening stroll, Lima’s Magic Water Circuit located at the "Parque de la Reserva", is a great spot to visit in the evening with all of its flowing fountains alight with iridescent colors and accompanied by music and a laser show. For lodging, we recommend Belmond Miraflores Park in the district of Miraflores with its many amenities and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. In the morning go to historic Lima, the downtown, and visit the Cathedral, the catacombs at San Francisco church, try the famous "Chifa" Peruvian Chinese food at China town in Capon Street.
The Exotic and Sensual Amazonia
From Lima, you might be taking a short flight to the city of Iquitos, Peru`s capital of the Amazon Rainforest for a luxury honeymoon. Cruise down the Amazon River: the MV Aqua, Aria Amazon or the M/F Delfin Cruises, based in Iquitos, are five-star river cruise small ships furnished with deluxe suites that include huge picture windows. You can watch the river go by from the comfort of your California king-sized bed. These cruises feature cuisine made from fresh local ingredients prepared by internationally recognized chefs. Discover and marvel at the exuberant nature, taking excursions. Regular excursions to see wildlife are taken from small launch boats that include comfortable padded seating. These cruises even feature a jacuzzi on its observation deck!
The Millenary Machu Picchu
Your trip wouldn’t be complete without the “Imperial City” of Cusco and the “Lost City” of Machu Picchu. You can choose any luxury Hotel in Cusco like Belmond Hotel Monasterio, Inkaterra in Machu Picchu Pueblo. Many of them have a blend of rustic and colonial architecture, great food and many amenities, including a luxury spa for couples to enjoy.
Cusco is a beautiful city which mixes the Inca archeology with the colonial, you can go to the artisan neighborhood, do adventure sports and much more. And not to mention the magic, mystery, and majesty of Machu Picchu, where you can transport yourself to Incas time.
Romance on the Beach
Another exciting option for your honeymoon is Peru`s northern beaches for a visit to the beautiful and warm sandy beaches of Mancora. We recommend Arennas Mancora, a luxury hotel. Try the exquisite northern cuisine (one of the most recognized of Perú), and splendid beaches. Activities include surfing, water skiing, horseback riding, or just lying around on the beach. Mancora is a truly romantic destination for honeymooners with its warm tropical ocean waters, and exquisite ocean sunsets. Excellent to rest and spark your romance, before starting the return home.
