At VIVA, we know Peru like no other guidebook company possibly can, as our headquarters are right up the road in Quito, Ecuador, where we frequently take trips to the "Southern Inca Empire." VIVA Travel Guides' on-the-ground authors bring you travel wisdom and street smarts. We live here, we understand the language, we understand the people, and we understand how to make the most of your time and money in Peru.
Peru's soaring mountains, untamed jungles and wild beaches have been welcoming travelers for millennia. Visitors today will find a dynamic, exciting country that is still immersed in its past as the center of Inca civilization and Spain's New World empire. Let VIVA guide you through Peru's fascinating mix of cultures and landscapes.
With this guidebook, you can:
-Navigate new alternatives to the Inca Trail on foot and mountain bike

Why settle for an outdated guidebook written by someone in New York or London?
We include the date that each piece of information is updated in this book. Other guidebooks don't do this and many proactively hide the publication date of their books because their information is several years out-of-date. It's nearly impossible to keep a printed book updated, and we're not perfect, but we are transparent. We make a sincere effort to keep the books as up-to-date as possible.
The VIVA community of travel writers, local experts and travelers like you are continuously on-the-ground updating and improving this guide at vivatravelguides.com. Join us, and together we'll make the best guidebook to Peru even better.
