TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / August 18, 2020 / Travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic have canceled getaways and forced travelers to keep adding to their bucket lists. Avid traveler Justin Belill believes Peru should be a country at the top of your travel list when flights and safe travel around the globe resume.
Justin Belill is a member of the U.S. military and a former employee for two airlines, AirTran and Delta Air Lines. He has always had a major interest in airlines, aviation, travel, and experience cultures around the globe. As an avid explorer, Justin Belill has visited several countries that have proven absolutely unforgettable -- one of them is Peru.
"To me, Peru is one of the most interesting countries in the world," Justin Belill said. "It's overflowing with culture, natural beauty, unique cuisine, and all of the makings of an ideal bucket-list destination."
Justin Belill explained that one of his top reasons to visit Peru is to meet the people who call it home. Heritage isn't something that has been put on the back burner in Peru. In fact, many Peruvians still have direct links to Inca ancestors, which mean visitors can still experience Inca traditions, ancient recipes, and more. Justin Belill explained that Peruvian people tend to be incredibly helpful, peaceful, and polite, making asking questions and sharing stories that much more enjoyable.
"When many travelers think of Peru, they think Machu Picchu," Justin Belill said. "But Peru is amazingly home to more than 28 unique climates."
Justin Belill stated that Machu Picchu is surely iconic and bucket-list-worthy in itself. However, Peru offers far more than just one iconic destination. The Ballestas Islands are loaded with penguins, Paracas is a charming desert town, and the Canon del Cotahuasi is one of the deepest canyons in the world. From the peaks of the Andes to the deep blue hues of the Pacific Ocean, Peru is packed with must-visit scenery, towns, and other destinations.
"Food critics consistently name Peru as one of the top foodie destinations in the Americas," Justin Belill said. "You'll understand why within hours of arrival."
Peruvian dishes are known for being spicy and filling, including the unique guinea pig meat, known as cuy, found in the Andes. Other, more traditional, Peruvian foods include mouthwatering empanadas, fresh ceviche near the sea, lomo saltado, butifarra, and more. Justin Belill explained that because the country is home to so many unique climates, the foods vary drastically based on the areas you visit.
"It's impossible to pack all of the beauty, culture, and flavors of Peru into a single visit, but I encourage you to try," Justin Belill finished. "You won't be disappointed."
