Back To destinations
Peru’s Pacific coast is a major attraction - and has been so for many thousands of years. We know this because of excavation of a site called Las Haldas, a vast site that dates back to Peru’s Initial period, around 2,000 BC. At its height, it is thought to have housed 10,000 inhabitants. Historians look to this site as a key to the very beginnings of Peruvian culture. Visit the site for a hike and a guided tour. Once you’ve had a hike around the ruins, you can relax on the nearby beach.
