A Peru honeymoon is a dream trip for many couples thanks to the mystical archeological site of Machu Picchu. Combined with Peru’s fascinating history, tranquil landscapes, and uniquely flavorful cuisine, it is one of the most romantic honeymoon destinations in the world.
Simply so, is Peru romantic?
Peru is a country that has a wonderful mix of adventure, romance, discovery, relaxation, and luxury, and all this makes it a wonderful holiday and honeymoon choice.
Thereof, is 2 weeks enough time for Peru?
But when your holiday time is limited, as it is for most of us, 2 weeks in Peru is enough to sample the highlights of this South American country. You can travel from the sophistication of Lima back in time to ancient Incan ruins high in the Andes Mountains.
Is 9 days in Peru enough?
9 days is a perfect amount of time to explore two or three regions of Peru and to get you excited about visiting the rest on future trips. This 9-day itinerary focuses on the Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca regions – the two most popular destinations for first-time visitors to Peru.

In Lima you will find beaches in Miraflores (Costa Verde), Barranco and Chorrillos, and also La Punta and Cantolao in Callao. The best beaches are located south of Lima, and they are the favorite ones of young people.
Just half an hour south of Lima, there is a beach with clear waters and thick sand. The bay keeps big waves with peaks that run both right and left that will allow you to swim or do some water sport.
Peru is one of the least expensive countries to live in South America. You can cover your basic expenses for $2,000 per month or less in most areas other than in Lima. Living in the capital costs you a bit more for the same quality of life as you would experience in outlying areas.
It’s always better to overestimate the cost of how much money you will need, since nobody wants to be stuck without money while traveling. Machu Travel Peru considers that around $30-40 USD per day -including the additional expenses- seems reasonable. Peru has so much to offer, it can be hard to know where to start.
How much money should I bring? Depending on the length of your trip, plan to bring $300-600 per person for spending money, tips, taxi rides, additional visits and those meals not included in the itinerary.
