Natural beauty, historical sights, hiking adventures, rich cultures, and delicious cuisine are all reasons to consider a family vacation in Peru. If you have been searching for a way to make memories with your family, while completing unique adventures, Peru is the answer. Today, I am sharing a sample itinerary of what your family could experience as you discover the best of Peru in seven days. Your itinerary will most likely look slightly different once I personalize it for your family. And that’s okay, because when you are making memories, you want them to be from activities you all enjoy doing!
On the very first day of your best of Peru family vacation, you will head to the village of Chincharro. Textiles are made in this village. You will see how the materials are dyed, as well as what is used to create the different colors.
After a delicious lunch, you will be taken to the salt mines near the town of Maras. These salt mines were created more than one hundred million years ago. This salt is for sale, so you may find yourself purchasing some before going to your hotel.
You cannot vacation in Peru without visiting Machu Picchu. You will travel to this ancient city via train. At the train station, you will board a bus to the Machu Picchu entrance.
When you arrive, you will have ample time to explore the Inca ruins.
Machu Picchu is one of the most popular UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Check out these underrated UNESCO World Heritage Sites and consider adding them to your future vacation plans.
Your family will have options for day three of your family vacation to discover the best of Peru. You can stay in Catalina to play with alpacas, relax, or wander around.
Or you can head over to Pisac to see the ruins and animal sanctuary. Since this is a day-long adventure, you will have time to go shopping at the market too.
The adventure on this day will take your family to the Urco ruins. You will only have a couple hours to explore before being taken back to Catalina for the afternoon. You will all want to go to bed early in preparation for the following day’s hike.
As spectacular as Machu Picchu was, a hike to the summit of a mountain in the Andes may be your favorite part of this vacation. You will hike together to an elevation of fourteen thousand feet. Then it will be time to check out hieroglyphics that have been in place for more than seven thousand years.
Your family will be tired at the end of this day. However, you will all feel rejuvenated and ready to relive the memories forever!
A day of exploring the city of Cusco will be exactly what you need after yesterday’s long hike. Start in the Plaza de Armas before venturing out to Shaman’s Row and San Pedro Market. Grab a bite to eat from a local restaurant before heading back to your hotel in Catalina.
Your family vacation in Peru will be coming to an end on this day. You will have had so much fun discovering the best of Peru that no one will want to return home. However, you must head to the airport for your flight. Hopefully, at some point in the future you will be able to return to see these beautiful sights once again.
As you can see, there are so many unique activities your family can do while exploring Peru on vacation. You can easily see some of the best of Peru when I personalize your family’s itinerary. All you need to do is let me know what everyone is interested in, and you will be making memories of a lifetime in no time at all.
