Author of the Only Peru Guide

Paul Jones - Principal Author

About 10 years ago I was working in the steel industry in the UK, when I decided that it was time to see a little bit more of the world and travel somewhere new. I had travelled extensively throughout Europe and North America, but never into Central and South America, and the thought of it excited me (much more than selling steel for a living). So after a little preparation I was off, first starting in Mexico and working my way south, through Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Ecuador until I reached Peru. I only every intended to stay in Peru for a few months at the most, but needless to say I am still here several years later.

Culturally living in Peru is quite a shock to the system, and often life seems a million miles away from what I knew. My life has changed somewhat since I left the UK, and nowadays I am married to a Peruvian national and have a small family.

My love for Peru and its fascinating cultures has blossomed in the last few years and I enjoy passing the time reading and writing about Peru, especially the fascinating Inca Empire and the lost cities of the Amazon Jungle.

I currently work as a Senior Sales Advisor for Totally Latin America at our offices in Cusco, and I enjoy helping clients from all over the world visit Peru. My specialist areas include Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

I hope that you enjoy my writing about Peru. If you are thinking about travelling to Peru soon then please get in contact and I will be pleased to help you plan a tour to Peru.
