Travel medical insurance for visiting Peru

Peru, the beautiful South American country is home to the Andes mountains, a part of the Amazon rainforest as well as the renowned Inca city of Machu Picchu. The capital Lima is along the Pacific coast while the former capital of the Inca empire Cusco is in the Andean mountains. The country is divided into three geographic regions namely, the Pacific coast, the Andean highlands and the Amazon jungle. The coast which is about 12% of the country has some beautiful beaches as well as arid desert land. The highlands constitute 28% of the country with the Andes mountains having snow covered peaks with altitudes greater than 6000 metres. The remaining 60% of the country is the Amazonia jungle region with topical climate, lush vegetation and plenty of flora and fauna. It is in fact one of earth's largest natural forest reserve and is the source of the world’s largest river, the Amazon.

The country has plenty to offer tourists ranging from the cosmopolitan city of Lima, to Lake Titicaca the highest Andean lake on the border with Bolivia, to beautiful beaches along the Pacific coast and to the rich bio-diverse Amazon jungle. However for most tourists the UN designated World heritage site of Machu Picchu is a must see. Machu Picchu was in fact voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in a global internet based poll in 2007.

Given all these attractions, it is no wonder that tourism is growing fastest in Peru when compared to all other countries in South America. The most popular nationalities for tourists to Peru are from the United States, United Kingdom, France, Brazil, Spain, India, Japan, Chile, and Argentina. Travel to Peru from the US has become easier thanks to regular affordable flights from US cities like New York, Los Angeles and Miami. It is however important for international tourists to have the proper travel insurance cover while visiting Peru. Customers can compare visitor travel insurance plans and buy the most appropriate plan for their needs.
