Many organized tours of Peru cater to senior travelers. The major airlines offer discounts for seniors, as do international chain hotels, but other than that, senior discounts in Peru are nonexistent. For visiting the jungle, Amazon cruise boats are an excellent option for people with limited walking abilities.
Good senior agencies include SAGA Holidays (www.saga.co.uk), which offers all-inclusive tours and cruises for those 50 and older. Elderhostel (U.S. tel. 800/454-5768, www.elderhostel.org) arranges study programs for people 55 and over in countries worldwide, including Peru.
