Just in case, it is a good idea to bring basic medications like aspirins and headache pills. However, the most important thing you must take with you is your camera. There is a multitude of landscapes, panoramas, sights and natural beauties which beg to be photographed!

3. Visit the most attractive places of interest. You will not get bored for one second if you visit South America.

Also, another great attraction you should see in Peru consists of the famous Nazca Lines. Not even the scientists can find an explanation for these lines and this makes them even more stunning and beautiful to look at.

If this is not enough and you want to experience even more then you are more than welcomed in Ecuador in order to see the renowned Amazon. If you have enough time at your disposal then you can also rent a horse and enjoy a beautiful trip near an amazing volcano such as Cotopaxi.
