The white volcanic sillar Spanish architecture glimmers in the sunlight as three colossal volcanoes tower in the distance absorbing the skyline. Arequipa is a sight to behold, especially in the center of town which UNESCO has dubbed a World Heritage site for its unique structures and views. Nearby a variety of adventurous expeditions can be arranged into the vast canyons and sky-kissing peaks,
while in town locals and travelers can be found mingling at many of the town’s cafes and bars. Known as the Alpaca capital of the world, if one is in the market for high quality wool this is good place to grab it. You won’t likely need it here though as the weather is almost always amicable, with little precipitation and mild temperatures throughout the year. Arequipa is also a spectacular place to enjoy Peruvian culinary delights, with many of the country’s famous dishes originating here and many opportunities to learn to cook yourself should you be so bold.
As Peru’s second largest and second most touristed city one will never be hard pressed for people to meet and bounce ideas off of. Aside from the considerable seismic threat (Earthquakes are a regular occurrence here), Arequipa is a nearly paradisiacal blend of scrumptious food, pleasant weather, impressive scenery, arresting architecture, and modern sensibilities sure to capture the heart of any wandering nomad.
