Exotic Wildlife in Peru's Northern Beaches
Attractions & Activities in Peru’s Northern Beaches
Northern Peru, from Trujillo to Chiclayo, is a must-visit for wildlife and nature lovers. The meeting of the currents off the coast of Northern Peru and the region’s medley of climates, from high Andean cloud forest to desert-like coastline and tropical rainforest, make for an incredibly biodiverse environment.
Birdwatchers, especially, should take note of this hotspot for endemic Peruvian bird species like the Marvelous Spatuletail Hummingbird, the endangered White-winged Guan, the colorful Andean Cock-of-the-Rock, and the rare Military Macaw.
South America’s only bear species, the Andean Spectacled Bear, also calls this region of Peru home as do poison frogs, spectacular butterflies, and an unbelievable variety of moths.
On the dry northern coast, you’ll likely spot fur seals, dolphins, Peruvian pelicans, sea lions, and, if you time it right, Humpback Whales.
Come ready with the binoculars on your luxury Peru tour to Peru’s biodiverse north. For more information about wildlife and nature tours in Peru, contact a Kuoda Travel Designer today.
