Lima is known as “ciudad de los Reyes” which is translated as “The City of Kings.” It became the capital of Viceroy of Peru until the country gained independence from Spain in 1821.
Located in the middle of the Peruvian Andes is the ancient home of the Inca Civilization, Cusco. The city is famous for its spectacular main square, cobbled streets, and houses with terracotta tile roofs that will remind you of some ancient European villages.
The Tambopata National Reserve is 274,690 hectares (1,061 square miles) of preserved land in Southeastern Peru. The Reserve has many diverse habitats, including lowland Amazon rainforest, riverine forest, and oxbow lakes.
