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!

Looking to slow down your trip instead of speed it up? Check out our option for a luxury train ride through the mountains and canyons of Peru.

Get in Touch

Esplanade arranged a wonderful New Zealand adventure for my wife and myself in 2020…just a couple of months prior to Covid shutting down the world! During this difficult time for the planet, the staff from Esplanade continued to reach out to us on how they recommended we deal with our travel plans and the expenditures we had previously committed to. They continuously updated our travel plans and made all the necessary adjustments to our itineraries. Almost three years to the day later, we were able to enjoy our New Zealand trip. The reservations, excursions, and overall recommendations made by Esplanade were fantastic! We commented several times that their commitment to the smallest of details was very apparent. Our flights were perfectly spaced, our drivers all showed up on time, and our accommodations and excursions were beyond expectations. We now plan on trusting Esplanade for our future travels to Africa and Europe. We cannot recommend them more.
