Peru is home to one of the most iconic sites in the world – Machu Picchu. However, there is so much more to this fascinating country. From the Andes to the Amazonian rain forest to the coastal deserts, Peru has a lot to offer.

One of the biggest barriers to exploring more of the country in one trip is the travel time between the region where Machu Picchu is located and other regions – oftentimes travelers will have to overnight in Lima or have an exceedingly long travel day.

Starting in June 2018, travelers will now have a direct flight option from Cuzco to Pisco, meaning you can start off the morning in the Andes and end it on the coast! The flight will operate on Thursdays and Sundays on LATAM and is roughly a 1 hour, 15 minute flight.

This new flight will allow travelers to get in touch with the former capital of the Inca Empire while visiting ancient religious temples, beautiful trails and archaeological sites such as Coricancha, Sacsayhuaman and Macchu Picchu and then, with only a short flight, land in Pisco to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the National Reserve of Paracas including a visit to the Ballestas Islands in a luxurious yacht to spot sea lions and other fauna. Not to be missed is a flight over the mysterious Nasca lines!

Get in Touch

We traveled to New Zealand this year for a great adventure exploring the country. This trip was 4 years in the making due to the Covid pandemic. We booked in 2019 with Esplanade and they planned a fantastic trip. The Esplanade team worked with us seamlessly over the years as we booked and Covid cancelled our trip at least 3 times. When we finally were able to travel in 2023, they had everything perfect. We were really expecting a lot of confusion due to the multiple bookings and cancellations, but Esplanade had everything perfect at every turn. The accommodations, excursions, transfers, etc. were all planned even better than we could have imagined. We highly recommend Esplanade Travel and will be using them again on our next adventure.
