Literary Guides to Peru

in South America/Travel Advice

Going to Peru and need some additional reading? Already been to Peru and would like some material to reinforce those connections you’ve made as a traveler? Below I’ve complied the titles I read prior to my recent adventure to the Land of the Incas. They are full of sensory details, cultural references, environmental relationships, historical facts and more.

I hope you’ll find these as insightful as I did. I encourage they be used as supplemental reading for your formal destination research. Remember, a wise traveler is an educated one.

Erika is a writer and content creator exploring the globe boldly and slowly one destination at a time. Her travels and rich upbringing as an Asian-American fuel many of her stories where she endeavors to write about the human condition. Although she might presently call NE Florida home, her heart remains listless for her home in Maui. She is an advocate for "experiences over possessions," a Marquez fan, and a self-proclaimed introvert.
