Travel destroys racism
Did you know that travel destroys racism? It is difficult to adapt suddenly to a country where everything is different, where people speak other languages, dress differently and practice perhaps quite bizarre customs, but even if you find it difficult to accept it, travelers end up falling in love with that country, with the food and even you´ll want to dress the same.
At Come See Peru we take you to places you never thought existed as well as meet people you never thought you would meet in your city, let us be part of your change and help us change people’ lives who also need to meet you to know that they exist.

Moray is a place out of the ordinary that almost nobody expects to see, the ruins of Moray form circles exactly built and oriented to catch the sunlight during the day which makes each terrace create its own microclimate thus initiating the adjustment of different species of plants at different heights.
