Home to the incredible Machu Picchu ruins - the greatest remaining testament to the power of the Inca Empire - Peru is a land of wonders and a destination where travellers will always discover something new. It is rich in exotic wildlife thanks to its amazingly diverse landscapes, which range from the towering Andes Mountains to lush jungles, shimmering salt flats, and breezy plains looking out toward the vast Pacific Ocean. To properly explore Peru, car hire is a must; you are guaranteed not to be disappointed when you take to the road and set out to discover this ancient land's secrets for yourself.

On the road

Peru only has one international airport - Jorge Chávez International Airport, serving Lima - but it is worth taking a connecting local flight down to the 'white city' of Arequipa and beginning your journey from there, as it will give you far more direct access to the most interesting parts of the country. You can take the coast road up to Chala and stop off at any number of beautiful beaches, then drive north into the desert to the village of Nazca, where you can see (and walk along) the world famous Nazca lines, which form pictures when seen from high above. How they were created remains a mystery, but local pilots will be happy to take you up in their planes so you can see them in their full glory.

Driving east through the dramatic landscapes of the Andes will take you to Cuzco, once the capital of the Inca Empire and still a thriving town where the ancient world collides with the modern. In Cuzco, you can explore the markets selling traditional weaving and carvings before journeying north to the legendary ruins at Machu Picchu.

Driving in Peru

The condition of the roads in Peru is variable; so discuss your itinerary with your car rental outlet to make sure you hire the most suitable kind of vehicle. Be wary of bad driving habits among the locals - especially those driving buses and trucks - and try to avoid driving at night as there is very little illumination outside the cities and animals often use the roads. If you are careful and patient, however, you'll love having the freedom to travel around this beautiful country at your leisure.
