Sometimes a backpacker has had enough of high-demanding treks. The Ancash region of Peru has so many trails to offer the trekking enthusiast that he might get dizzy just trying to decide which he wants to tackle.
Iquitos, Peru is the largest city in the world not reachable by road. Of course today you can fly into its airport in just a few hours. Or you can reach this jungle metropolis the same way it’s always been done – by boat.
Lima is cold and foggy in September, but just four and a half hours south is a place where the sun heats the sand and the pisco flows freely, no matter what time of year. This oasis is called Huacachina.
