Over the past few years, the Peruvian economy has been recovering and GDP is growing at 2.4%. These are good prospects and make Peru an appealing place to live. Large parts of the country are still untouched by development so it’s also a great place for adventurers to start a new, exciting chapter in their lives.
Almost a third of the Peruvian population lives in Lima. It is the capital of the country, a desert city, yet is located on the coast. It is surrounded by mountains and ocean and apart from being the capital city, Lima is also the business center of the country. The cost of living in Peru is low and it is possible to live a very comfortable life. People are warm and friendly and welcoming of newcomers.
Peru has an incredibly rich and long, very long, history. Many people travel to the country at least once in their lives to see the world famous ‘Machu Picchu’, the ancient Inca mountain citadel. But there is much more to see, do and experience in Peru. National parks, canyons, museums and deserts; weekends and holidays in this country will definitely not be boring.
