Travel Tips Machu Picchu

Peru is a South American country. The capital city is Lima, which also became the name of a local bean (found in other Mesoamerican contries but named because they were often shipped from Lima during the Spanish colonial period). Portions of the Amazon Basin are found in Peru, and pre-colonization, the country was the center of the Incan civilization. Native fauna include the Humboldt penguin (also found in Chile).The darkest regions are purportedly home to marmalade loving bears.


  • Machu Picchu, the most famous Peruvian locale, has been referenced in several Muppet projects, and directly visited by Lola with footage on Plaza Sésamo.
