The division in three very different ecological zones canbe seen on the map above; the Andes dividing the country in a narrow coastal zone, the Andes itself with mountians that go over 6000 meters,
and the big amazon rainforest zone. See also our
map in the climate section
or go directly to the bigger map
for an even better idea about these 3 zones.
Principal Roads in Peru

The roads in Peru shown on this map are in good state especially on the coast. Here from North to South one can travel by bus or car over large distances rather easily, and enter or leave the country at the
borders with Ecuador and Chile. Another story are the roads into the Andes. Arequipa is still easy to reach, but Cusco and Puno sometimes not, as especially in the rainy season,
roads can be blocked now and then because of landslides, despite of those roads being completely asphalted nowadays. So always ask and check the situation locally when travelling by road. To reach
Bolivia one could travel to Puno and cross the border towards La Paz. A new possibility to reach Rio Branco in Brasil is the road called the "Interoceanico", going from Cusco, to Puerto Maldonado
in the jungle and then to the Brasilian border, from where one can travel further into Brasil. Very recently this road was finished, before it was quite an adventure to reach Puerto Maldonado from Cusco,
especially in the rainy season. But even now, it is good to consult the state of the road before travelling. For more information on this road see here: Carretera Interoceanica
