Peru is located in the west coast of South America, south of the Equator Line. It is a diverse country with rich tradition and history – birthplace of the Inca and other ancient civilizations. Beyond the unique Machu Picchu – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – in Peru, one finds many habitats – namely 80 of the world’s 120 ecological habitats. From deserts to rainforests and tundra, from streeped mountains to the deepest canyon and beaches reminiscent of the Caribbean. Generally speaking, Peru has three natural regions (something unique in itself); the coast, the mountains (‘La Sierra’) and the jungle (‘La Selva’).
