What makes a Peru family vacation so special?


Adventure activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, whitewater rafting and even sand buggying in the desert ensure that adrenaline seekers won’t be disappointed. Gentle camping treks in the Cusco region are also popular, as are day hikes and picnics in the countryside.

Nature & biodiversity

Those who venture to the Amazon rainforest have the chance to uncover a cornucopia of exotic plants and animals in the most biologically-diverse part of the planet, and that’s not to mention the varied flora and fauna of the mountains and the coast.

Education & discovery

Peru offers a rich educational experience for families that choose to travel here. The country’s history poses no end of intrigue, with the captivating Machu Picchu or the enigmatic Nazca Lines enough to feed any youngster’s imagination.

Cultural interaction

Children can also benefit from having direct contact with people from a different culture; meeting local children, doing volunteer work or donating to a good cause can vastly broaden a child’s understanding of the world around them.


Why should I plan my family’s trip with Aracari?

1) We have experience

We specialize in designing fun and interesting itineraries to suit the whole family. In seventeen years of operation, we have organised trips for families with children as young as one-year-old to those in their late teens.

The key to our success has been combining conventional visits that suit adults with pursuits that provide invaluable experience and insight for young travellers, as showcased on our two featured itineraries. We are especially well-prepared for managing the logistical demands of a family trip and ensuring that safety arrangements are taken care of.

2) We pay attention to the finer details

Playful and fun details are a highlight of a Peru family tour. We have added such unusual delights such as a trip to a Peruvian chocolate museum for a hands-on chocolate making lesson or an interactive treasure hunt in Cusco to make these itineraries absorbing and memorable. Other details such as a family-friendly welcome pack and special treats and surprises along the way will help a Peru family vacation with Aracari stand out.

3) We carefully select suitable guides

We select guides that not only have expert knowledge of culture, archaeology and botany but they are also gentle, patient, caring and great with children, as well as being engaging for teenagers and young adults.

4) We hand-pick the perfect hotels for families

We have selected hotels that have the right infrastructure for young people and that work in partnership with us to provide the most appealing and appetising kids experience. We have close relationships with Peru’s hotels and are savvy to choosing the best rooms and directing families to the most suitable options.

There are many factors that we take into account when assessing the suitability of a hotel for families: whether it has connecting rooms; whether it is in a pleasant natural environment; whether there are modern and interactive elements such as toys or electronic gadgets; and whether there are special activities for kids are just a few of the aspects that we consider.

5) We help you to connect with local people

Trips to indigenous communities and museum visits specially designed for children ensure that families are offered ample opportunity to engage with Peru’s people and their diverse cultural background. We can set up a trip to a local school, for example, allowing children to experience life in a different culture first-hand while interacting with children their own age.
