Check out some tour packages when planning trips to Peru. This will give you an idea of the places you can venture too and these packages usually include travel to your different destinations and your accommodations too. One place which you should be on your agenda is the Temple of the Moon and the Temple of the Sun in Huanchaco.

An amazing part of the Mohica cultures history is found within the Sun Temple and the Moon Temples in the town of Huanchaco which are believed to be from the early 5th century. In the Moon Temple you will notice it is encircled with homes of the ancient days and burial plots of the Mohica's of old. There are also extravagant once upon a time murals in the polychrome crafting which adorn many of the walls here.

The capitol of the Empire of the Chimu in the early thirteenth century is now Chan Chan. Here archaeology is at its highest due to the massive finding of the complex of mud they have found and are still excavating. The on-site museum shows you everything that has been discovered here shards of ancient pottery and some intact objects like jewelry and more. Another building you cannot miss here id the Tshudi Palace.

The Peru Coast on this side actually is home to the Huaca Prieta which is deemed the most ancient original constructed building in Peru. The Shaman or the El Brujo as they call it is where it is found along with another such pyramid but not nearly as old as the one above. This pyramid is named the Huaca El Brujo.

The culture of Sican can be seen and explored within Ferrenafe township. The culture is saved within the museum of the Sican along with many artifacts which have been found upon excavations. Some of the most treasured items include some pieces of their art in ceramics and jewelry as well as some weapons and tools of their lives used each day.

To see the exquisite and historical stone forests and the Monks Sanctuary you will need to travel to Cumbemayo. You will also be able to view the ancient Incas aqua ducts which are a true architectural sight for their times. If you are a adventurer then you cannot overlook the Caves of Callacpuna they are truly part of the beautiful faces of nature when added to the majestic waterfalls which can also be seen and hiked too.

Poachers almost killed off an entire species of wild horses called the Takhi. They were killed for many reasons meat, hides and for sport. Thanks to the people at the Khustai Nature Preserve they are now growing in numbers and have a safe sanctuary to live and breed within, At last count the numbers were over 200 horses. The best part about this preserve is that you can spend the night in a traditional Nomadic Ger if you wish.

For the teenagers in your group and the children at heart journey to the farm called Porcon in Cuarto de Rescate. Here the workers manage livestock of many types from sheep, camels, cows and more to fields of crops in their agricultural areas. You and your family can spend a day on the farm working alongside the farmers here and see what it takes to do the things they do to survive and make a living on your trips to Peru.
