Peru is the third largest country in South America and is approximately three times the size of California. Most Peruvians are either Spanish speaking mestizos-a term that is an amalgamation of indigenous and European/Caucasian-or Amerindians, largely Quechua-speaking indigenous people. Peruvians of European descent make up about 15% of the population. A small number of the population is also made up of African, Japanese, and Chinese lineage. Peru not only boasts of rich and race, but is also home to a variety of other nature as well as man-made magnetism. Which goes without saying, adds to its picturesque beauty and magnificence making it one of the most desired tourist spot in the world. Peru’s tourism is among the most varied in South America, thanks to a diverse climate and topography that has given way to a wealth of nature wonders. Most people come for the Machu Picchu and other ruins around Cusco, but there’s a lot more to see and do.

Chiclayo is a simple village of Indians and mestizos in the road between Lambayeque and Zana incolonial times. It had the good fortune, however, of being in the center of an important Pre-Incan archaeological area, the site of recent spectacular archaeological discoveries such as The Lord of Sipan in Huaca Rajada, The Lord of Sican in Batan Grande and the pyramids of Tucume. The Museo de Tumbas Reales de Sipan and Sican National Museum, housing a collection of immeasurable worth, has made these discoveries accessible to all. Chiclayo has thus become Peru’s second destination, after Cuzco, in terms of archaeological and historical interest. Chiclayo, also known for its highly-regarded sorcerers and healers, is located on Peru’s northern coast.
