Long Pacific beaches, dry deserts, high Andes mountains, evergreen Amazon rainforests - all of this is part of the Peruvian landscape. Because of this natural and cultural diversity, there are lots of different things you can experience during your visit in Peru! At the same time Peru still belongs to one of the poorest countries in South America with a high crime rate. Children and young adults suffer from low job expectations and this is way a lot of local aid organizations invest in improving conditions, especially for the younger generations.
