Peru is the third largest country in South America, after Brazil and Argentina, ranking it among the 20 largest countries in the world. It has three well defined geographical areas: an arid and narrow Coast, the Highlands (Andes mountain range) with very high mountains and a very large Jungle or the Amazon (Rainforest). This creates great wealth: fishing, farming and mining; opportunities: gas and petrochemical industry and challenges: road integration of its territory.

With a population of over 31 million people, it has been, through its history, the meeting point of different races and culture.  Almost 500 years ago, the Spanish and then the migration of Africans, Asians and Europeans joined the indigenous population.

 

LOCATION
Peru is located on the western coast of South America, bordered on the north by Ecuador and Colombia, on the east by Brazil and Bolivia, on the south by Chile, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. 

 

CLIMATE
Peru’s weather varies greatly depending on the geographical region. The Coast is at sea level.  The temperature in central & south coast is 19-29 ºC and 14-20 ºC in winter. On the north coast between 25-35 ºC. The Highlands are cooler and drier with temperatures dropping below zero at night but sunny during the day in the months of May to August and warmer and rainy from November to March. La selva or Amazon is the hottest, humid and where most rain falls in Peru.
