Airports in Peru... Top landing strips in the country
Peru is not a country easily explored overland
that's why airports in Peru comes to the rescue
to help you organize your Peru holidays.
Moving away from the coast - where the majority of the population lives - the geography of Peru is predominantly marked by the rugged terrain of the Andes and the vastness of its impenetrable jungle.
Distances also play a very important role
as many tourist attractions in Peru are simply too far apart
or plainly impossible to be reached overland (i.e. Iquitos).
The bus journey Lima-Cuzco for instance -1
200km / 730 miles - will take you twenty hours to complete
but only one hour if you travel by air.
In this context
the following list of airports in Peru will help you plan your Peru vacations in a time-efficient manner.
