ica and vineyards TRAVEL

Surrounded by desert, the beautiful city of Ica awaits in the middle of a lush valley located in southern Peru. The warm climate, gorgeous white sand dunes, and a stunning lagoon, known as Huacachina by the locals, all contribute in making this wonderful city sing to any who long to experience a piece of heaven on earth.  

There is no lack of entertainment and visitors may explore the surrounding areas of the lagoon or go for an adventure in special dune buggies used for the ultimate sport of “Sandboarding” in the deserts of Peru. For those interested in archeology and the history of the area, Ica is proud to be in possession of one of the best archeological museums of Peru - “The Regional Museum of Ica”. For the wine connoisseur, time spent among the traditional vineyards in Peru’s countryside is in order. Along with gaining a taste of this age old practice comes a chance at learning how Peruvians prepare the delicious national drink - the “Pisco Sour” cocktail.  

Most may not realize just how long Peru’s wine industry has thrived and grown. Spanish conquistador Marquis Francisco de Caravantes was the first to introduce wine grapes to Peru during his sixteenth century visit and winemaking developed rapidly thereafter. Passion for the industry has had Peruvians perfecting their grape growing techniques ever since and the results shine. Today, outstanding wines are being produced by wine makers in the province of Ica and the world is discovering what local Peruvians have known well.

TRAVEL TO PERU, THE SPIRITUAL LAND OF THE SUN

Filled with magic, history, nature and culture

Peru Coast

The Southern Peruvian Coast offers two well defined seasons. From December to April it is considered summertime, when the weather is warm and it even gets hot (February). The ocean stays a bit cold compared to other spots around the world, but it’s still nice for swimming and getting a tan, especially if you like to surf. Temperatures during this time range from 25–33°C / 77-91°F. There is hardly any rain during these months. The beaches around Lima and the North can be crowded during the months of January and February, which coincides with school holidays. So, consider March if you are looking for a less busy time. From May to November, the temperature drops a bit and sea mist engulfs the coast. At this time of the year, only the northern beaches such as Punta Sal and Mancora will allow you got in some swimming.

Peru Andes

The Southern Andes have succinct seasons. From June to August, the winter days are typically sunny and warm, but the temperature can drop below freezing (27°F/-3°C) at night. There is usually no during winter. From January to March, the summer months offer daytime temperatures around 85°F/30°C, milder nights (typically to 45°F/8°C) and plenty of rain. Despite some rain, December and April are spring-like months that are great for traveling, since the mountains are blooming flowers and you get plenty of sunshine. May is the best month to travel because the rain has finished, the temperature is mild and the mountains are still lush. Andean spring and fall offers intermediate patterns between the seasonal extremes.

Peru Rainforest

The so called “dry season” occurs from April to October, with daily temperatures averaging 30–35°C / 86-95°F. However, cold fronts from the South Atlantic are common. When this happens, the temperatures can drop to 15°C / 59°F during the day and 13°C / 55°F at night. Dry seasons are great for jungle tours, because you don’t have to deal with mosquitos and the beaches are visible due to low waters. Animals can also be seen when the rain levels are low. From November to March, we have the wet season. It is hot and humid and there are heavy rains, but the heavy rains only occur for a couple of hours, so you can still enjoy your trip.

Machu Picchu 7 Wonders of the World

Home of Machu Picchu, one of the 7 Wonders of the World, Cusco is a fascinating place. Everywhere you go and everything you see is a constant reminder of its past. Many buildings have two layers: the stone Inca walls , and on top, the Spanish conquerors buildings. The breathtaking city of Cusco was the capital of the glorious Inca Empire and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983 by UNESCO.The name Cusco, derived from Quechua and Aymara word “Qusqu” is originated in the phrase qusqu wanka (‘Rock of the owl’) and based on one of the main foundational myths of the Empire: The Ayar brothers. In this story one of the siblings becomes a bird and flies to the site of the future city. There, he becomes a rock as a way of marking possession of the land.Cusco was built in the shape of a Puma, the heart of which is located in the Plaza de Armas or main square. It is also called “the navel of the world” by locals, probably, because it was the center of the vast Inca Empire.
