The constant search for the magnificent past of my ancestors has taken me through the different regions of Peru, where I have found natural places of great beauty as well as Inka temples full of mystery and radiance. I am lucky to have been born in the Andes, and specifically, in Cusco which was the spiritual center and capital of the great Inka culture, still called Qosqo - the Navel of the World. Here , I discovered nature and its elements, the mountains and jungles with their spirits, and the Andean and Amazon peoples, who, like their wise ancestors, are full of simplicity and respect for everything which surrounds them.

Throughout my travels in the Andes and the coast of Peru, and my explorations of the Amazon, I have found many natives with great knowledge, and studied their philosophy and wisdom. I invited them to give several conferences in the United States where we were able to meet with native peoples from many regions of the world. These events culminated with an invitation to give a conference in the White House in Washington during 1995.

This extensive background gives me a detailed knowledge of my country, and through PumaPeru Expeditions I can impart a way to explore Peru in a deep, inner fashion that displays the essence of several marvelous cultures Inka, Pre-inka and Amazonic, along with the powerful natural scenery that each region presents in its own spectacular show. This mixture will make your visit to Peru the journey of a lifetime, full of interesting experiences with a seasoning of adventure, ecology, culture and even the truly sacred.

There are surprises in store for all those who explore Peru, a land of mystery and tradition located in the heart of the Andes. Peru has many diverse environments. There are the coastal deserts with their fertile valleys watered by rivers flowing down from the Andes. Snow peaks and massive mountains in the center of the country guard the most enchanting and marvelous Inka cities and temples. In the east are low-lying jungles. Here large areas have been declared national parks and ecological reserves due to a great diversity of plant and animal species; many of these are not only unique but are also in danger of extinction. And if these riches were not enough, we can study culture, philosophy and art joined together in ancestral traditions dating back more than two thousand years.
