The most beautiful country in South America, and one of the nicest in the world. The country is divided in three regions: The pacific coast, where you can find the nicest district beaches in the short south of Lima (from 40 Km. south), we got districts beaches called Punta Hermosa(where the best surf female performer in the world Sofia Mulanovich raised) , San Bartolo, Santa María, Asia, Cerro Azul (130 Km) , etc. We got big waves, a californian beaches live style, the most delicious seafood in the world (mariscos), nice clubs, nice camping spaces right at the oceanfront with no restrictions, etc. In the far north from Lima (540 Km.) you'll find Huanchaco, Pimentel (700km.), Mancora(1000Km.), Cabo Blanco (1200km) where you'll find nice resorts, nice food at the oceanfront, and you just can go camping and drinking with your bodies. Then you go 100 km. east from Lima and from the begining of the road you gonna start climbing up and seeing a lot of huge mountains and at the 90 Km. of the central road from Lima you gonna start seeing snowpeak mountains. That region is called the "Sierra"(Highlands). You can go either north or south, you'll find dozens of cities and towns rounded by snowpeak huge mountains (that's 10000 feet above sea level), beautiful landscapes (just like the ones you see in switzerland, but we got 12 switzerlands in there), the weather is cold (the highest you go the colder it gets), sunny, and by 60 F- 70 F degrees in some places, and that's where most of the Peruvian Indian population live. People there is hospitalary, well instructed and nice with the foreigners, and they are willing to show you our origin as the biggest culture in America. They got typical food called Pachamanca (assorted meat (goat, cow, rabbit, pork,etc., cooked underground), Trucha frita ( fried sweet water fish eaten with white rice and lime, real good!!!), etc. You'll find the Inca's ruins and fortresses (built by the Inca's 800 years ago, like Machupicchu, Sacsaihuaman,etc.), and colonial style houses and cathedrals (built by spanish conquerors 500 years ago), and clay houses (with red tiled roof and white walls typical in the "Sierra"), and besides, you can go alpinism, or just hang out and socialize in the Major Parks at nights or just go to the clubs, and you see people from all over the world there. And then, you get in the road and go east, and you'll start dropping down (from 10000 feet til sea level), and by 40 km. of dropping you gonna start watching green mountains and hills all over the place, and as you're going further lower the only non green thing you'll see is the blue sky and the black road that lead you to the other region called "Selva" (jungle). Is a tropical weather region, with nice locals called "charapas" (girls are hot cos' they barely wear clothes cos' the hot weather and they're nice looking too), where you'll find the Amazon river at its biggest, and a variety of tropical food like "Cecina con Tacacho" ( salted pork meat with fried mashed salted green bananas), juane (a pyramid shaped salted tamale made with green selva's rice with pork or chicken inside), and more. The states's capitals are Iquitos (Loreto), Pucalpa (Ucayali), and Puerto Maldonado (Madre de Dios), Chachapoyas (Amazonas) and Moyobamba (San Martin), and Tarapoto. The selva's size is like three times Florida.
