10 Tips for Traveling to Peru with Families
Myths and Mountains love families!
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - Myths & Mountains share that Peru is a hot destination for families for many reasons. Peruvians are family-oriented and love children; the adventure of exploring a historic location such as Machu Picchu stokes the adventure fantasies of children; and visits to the Amazon Rainforest appeal to kids who love bugs and birds, mini crocodile hunters and wanna-be naturalists.
The staff at Myths and Mountains plan family trips to Nepal, the Galapagos and Myanmar as well as Peru. They’ve complied 10 Tips for Travel Peru with Kids on their blog which will help in planning a family trip and allow everyone to have a great time.
- Allow kids to be spontaneous with local children during a visit to a rural school.
- Tell hotels and guesthouses family needs in advance
- Ask for guides who work specifically with families
- Ask for small hotels in Peru
- Participate in activities your family has not done before
- Don’t cram too many activities into a day
- Try a new experience such as weaving or cooking
- Be prepared for last minute changes in plans
- Consider children’s physical abilities and limits
- Bring small things from home for “Show and Tell”
The Machu Picchu and Beyond itinerary is highly recommended as it goes beyond touring the 600-year-old Inca ruins to meeting the fascinating people of Peru’s small rural villages, markets, and towns. It’s an adventurous mix of wonder, mystery, and real-life experiences in Peru. Even better, it’s a gentle way to expose children to a foreign culture, especially if it’s their first trip abroad.
