Where's the best place to stay in Peru?

Hi folks, we really want to visit Peru but don't want to be ferried around! We much prefer to explore by ourselves. Can anyone help with info? Considering staying in Lima: is this a good place to branch out from? If not do you have any suggestions? Thanks !

Your flight will arrive to Lima, so it is the place to branch out from.

Most visitors go to Cusco and Machu Picchu.

It is a very difficult to answer.

Peru has many beautiful places to stay.

You have mountains, beach, jungle, mix for everything, hot weather, cold weather, natural area, city etc.

I think you first need to know what do you want .)

We have many places .

I miss my country

Good Luck!

Peru is a much larger and more diverse country than you may imagine.

I think a travel guidebook might be a good investment.

Almost daily someone posts their tentative itinerary for advice. Look at those--they generally stay within the typical "gringo trail"--and see which parts interest you. It really does sound like you need to buy a guide book or two and read up on what Peru has to offer.

Lima is certainly worth spending time in, but you can't expect to make day trips from there. To get to Machu Picchu you must go to Cusco.

Cusco and Huaraz are the most visited cities for trekking so choose any or both :)

Get a lonely planet peru guidebook. By far the easiest one to read and understand. Well used by backpackers. Have fun, Peru is fun and easy.
