South America's Best Non-Beach Honeymoon Destination

  |   By Jen O'Brien

Some couples were specifically engineered to garner maximum enjoyment from spending days on end sipping daiquiris on the sand, and others...not so much. If your idea of the ultimate vacation means exposure to ancient history and local culture, rather than simply sun and umbrella drinks, Cusco, Peru may just be the non-beach honeymoon destination of your dreams.

Imagine a city nestled in the heart of the Andes with llamas and luxury hotels in equal measure; a place where women in swathed in elaborate traditional garb cradling baby goats perch outside high-end boutiques, and where some of the world’s finest examples of Spanish colonial architecture sit in contrast to rugged mountain peaks – this is Cusco.

Once a backpacker haven used as a precursory stop before the trek to Machu Picchu, this vibrant Peruvian city, the former crown jewel of the Inca Empire, is re-establishing itself as a world-class destination.

From ancient wonders to modern amenities, we'll show you why this city of contrasts is the ideal non-beach honeymoon destination. Read on to discover everything you need to know to plan the trip of a lifetime in this fascinating part of Peru.
