Romantic Locations in Peru for Outdoor Lovers


1. Machu Picchu

Proposing at this iconic Inca citadel could be a truly unforgettable experience. The mystical ruins and the panoramic views of the surrounding Andes Mountains create a dramatic backdrop for popping the question.


2. Colca Canyon

With dramatic vistas deeper than the Grand Canyon, the Colca Canyon offers stunning scenery. Imagine proposing at the “Cruz del Condor” viewpoint, where you can often see Andean condors soaring overhead.


3. Miraflores Boardwalk - Lima

For a more urban setting, the boardwalk in Miraflores provides spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. Sunset is a particularly magical time, offering a romantic atmosphere as the sun dips below the horizon.


4. Lake Titicaca

Consider a boat ride on the highest navigable lake in the world for a serene and picturesque proposal. You can even arrange for a private moment on one of the floating Uros Islands, made entirely of reeds. 


5. Sacred Valley

The lush, verdant valley with its backdrop of the Andes and its scattered Inca ruins makes a beautiful and tranquil setting for a proposal. 


6. Gocta Falls

Nestled in the Amazonas region, these impressive waterfalls are among the tallest in the world. A hike to the base of the falls offers a dramatic and secluded spot for a proposal.


7. Arequipa’s Santa Catalina Monastery

This beautifully preserved convent offers a maze of colorful alleys and courtyards that provide a quiet and picturesque setting for a proposal.

Romantic Destinations in Peru

Peru is full of romantic mountains, sand dunes and deserts. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal over a glass of wine, at a spectacular sand dune, or at a beautiful mountain.


8. Huacachina Oasis

The desert oasis of Huacachina, with its surrounding sand dunes, creates a stunning and unusual landscape for a proposal. You could even celebrate with a sandboarding adventure post-proposal.

9. Rainbow Mountain - Vinicunca

For the adventurous couple, a trek to Rainbow Mountain offers breathtaking views of the striped, colorful mountain terrain, making a vibrant and extraordinary setting for a proposal.


10. Nazca Lines

For a truly unique proposal, consider a flight over the Nazca Lines. The mysterious geoglyphs carved into the desert are best seen from the air and provide a memorable backdrop for such a special moment.
