Many couples' ideal honeymoon involves visiting Peru, namely the magical Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Because of its rich cultural heritage, beautiful natural scenery, and delicious food, Peru is a top choice for honeymooners. The old city streets, Incan ruins, and winding mountain roads of this stunning South American nation provide a wealth of adventure opportunities. Amidst the picturesque setting, there are many chances to refuel and enjoy relaxation. Listed below are some recommendations for your honeymoon in Peru. These will take you to Peru's most popular locations for the best experience.
Lima is the largest city in South America and a prime example of a thriving metropolis, with a population of about 10 million. Despite the city's size, Miraflores, Barranco, and the Historic Center are the three most exciting areas of Lima.
This capital and cultural hub of Peru is home to a wide variety of exciting attractions. Newlyweds can begin their exploration by visiting the city's charming Historic Center. Follow that up by visiting the Larco Museum, widely considered to be the finest art institution in all of South America. Excellent cuisine complements the museum's extensive collection of pre-Columbian items from all around Peru. And if you're feeling peckish, you can have a delicious meal in the museum's vibrantly hued garden. There are even beautiful Lima beaches to visit! The couple may spend quality time together here, free from the distractions of Lima's urban environment.
The pleasure of discovering the world's longest mountain range with your loved one may be very spectacular. Not to mention there is an abundance of world-famous attractions in the Andes for your honeymoon in Peru. These include the Inca fortress of Machu Picchu, the culturally rich Sacred Valley, and the ancient city of Cusco.
Various exquisite retreats and romantic adventures await newlyweds among these snowy peaks and lush valleys.
Here's one example: you may take a break from your travels and relax at a luxurious resort on the banks of the Urubamba River, treating yourself to spa treatments and enjoying the warm sunshine. You can stay in luxurious 5-star hotels, indulge in regional specialties and artisanal drinks, and enjoy all the historical charm Cusco is famous for. Alternatively, you may climb and camp along ancient Inca pathways on the Inca Trail, one of the world's most well-known treks.
The Andes is a romantic but also adventurous paradise. Ziplining, white water rafting, llama trekking, mountain biking, standup paddleboarding, and horseback riding are just a few examples of activities for the adventuresome. There are Pachamama rites, visits to local artisan workshops, and folkloric performances for anyone interested in learning about the region's rich cultural heritage.
Luxury Amazon Cruise
Your exotic Peru honeymoon can be luxurious as well. A luxury cruise down the Amazon is a great way to relax and take in the sights. Newlyweds can enjoy refurbished luxury liners with spacious staterooms and state-of-the-art amenities.
Additionally, they have Michelin-starred chefs and experienced captains who are familiar with every bend in the river. On a honeymoon in Peru, we recommend sipping some traditional Peruvian beverages while drifting down the Amazon on a magnificent river cruise and watching pink dolphins play in the water. Further, a luxury boat along the Amazon River is the ideal way to experience Peru's warm summer months.
Reach out and touch the clouds from the highest body of water that can be crossed by ship. Lake Titicaca is considered the "Birthplace of the Incas" and the spiritual core of Andean culture. Your stay at the lake in the sky will provide you with several possibilities to engage with the local community.
Puno, the gateway city to Lake Titicaca, has several cultural celebrations throughout the year, including the month-long Fiesta de la Virgen de Candelaria.
Furthermore, you may take a boat out on the lake from the city and enjoy the beautiful vistas and explore the many islands. Highlights include the floating, artificial Uros Islands, where you can learn about local traditions while exploring impressive homes, boats, and the islands themselves. And there's also Taquile Island, where you can hike to a viewpoint and enjoy the local plaza and market.
You may check into a luxurious lakeside resort or a quaint country inn not far away. Take your special someone on a romantic getaway to the lakeside resort for a weekend of spa treatments, kayaking, and soaking in the scenery. Or meet a local family, have a hearty home-cooked supper, and see a nearby temple all in one place at the country inn. It's up to you to decide which option you prefer for your honeymoon in Peru.
Cusco is the cultural heart of Peru due to its ancient history and colonial architecture. Start your walking tour of Santo Domingo in the city's historic plaza, Plaza de Armas, where you may visit the famous churches of Santo Domingo and the Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús. The nearby remains of Qurikancha, also known as The House of the Sun, are fascinating because their interior walls were previously gilded.
Local street sellers offer everything along the route to the large San Pedro market. And we do mean everything – from popcorn and plantains to figurines of the indigenous goddess Pachamama. It's the perfect place to get some souvenirs to remind you of your wedding! Make sure you protect all your memories and learn how to store wedding memorabilia. After the shopping, you may stuff your face with local specialties like empanadas, salchipapas (fried sausage with potatoes), rocoto rellenos (stuffed and baked peppers), fresh fruits and vegetables.
Hopefully, you've planned your honeymoon stress-free Sadly, we are approaching the trip's end. Before climbing the short ascent to Sacsayhuaman, you may treat yourself to a dessert at the neighboring Choco Museo. The Inca built Sacsayhuaman in the 15th century. It is high above Cusco, making it a lovely place to see the sunset. In the evening, head out to one of Cusco's many bars to start your farewell to Peru in style.
