Why stay in an Airbnb in Peru
There are several good reasons to stay in an Airbnb instead of a hotel when visiting Peru.
First, you can feel what it’s like to actually live in Peru and stay amongst the locals, which is a really nice option. Second, it’s usually much cheaper than staying at a hotel.
Another great thing is that by staying in an Airbnb, you get to experience totally unique places that would be hard to find as a regular traveler, such as domes, tree houses, luxurious villas, and more.
In this guide, you will find a selection of the best Airbnbs to stay in Peru. Plus, we have also added a list of valuable travel tips for your trip.
