Peru is located on the Pacific coast, in the central region of South America. The country has an extensive and rich history and culture. Peru offers a variety of opportunities to visitors: history, archaeology, culture, art, nature, adventure and gastronomy. Its economy is one of the most dynamic in Latin America. This growth continues, fueled largely by the export of metals, minerals, agricultural and marine products to China, the USA and Canada.
