Few destinations have as much to offer visitors as
an astonishingly varied country. Here you'll find panoramic
mountain ranges, vast deserts, beautiful beaches and tropical
jungle, not to mention fantastically rich history, archaeology,
wildlife and enduring indigenous cultures.
All are set in stunning landscapes, whether parched desert costa
(coast), soaring sierra (mountains) or remote selva (rainforest)
overflowing with wildlife. Such a diverse landscape generates
diverse pleasures; the visitor can hike through snowy peaks one
day, and relax on the beach the next; paddle a dugout through
lowland rainforest or hop on a traditional tortora reed boat on
some of the world's highest lakes.
There is a wealth of sports and activities on offer, from
sandboarding and surfing to extreme mountain biking and rafting.
Add to these medicinal hot springs, mesmeric music, well-stocked
museums, rich culture and uncommonly friendly people and you
have a destination with something for everybody.
