This is not your average family vacation! Travelling the coast, up into the Andes and down to the jungle, this trip is designed so you can have the most fun, appreciate the highlights and even have time to relax. We take a boat trip to the nature-filled Ballestas Islands on the coast, ride dune buggies and try “sand-boarding” on massive sand dunes, fly over the Nasca Lines, visit Machu Picchu and feed hungry llamas. We top it off with time in the jungle searching for monkeys, macaws and giant river otters; the kids will be talking about this one for years!
