Edwar was raised at his grandmother’s home in a native community of the Andean highlands, working on a farm and learning the local culture and traditions, speaking Quechua as his first language. With the encouragement of his grandmother, he left his community for Cusco to work and begin high school.
As fate would have it, Edwar met two travelers from the US who would change his life forever; who ultimately would become his parents and encourage him to begin studying archeology.
During his formal education, Edwar worked as a guide on the Inca Trail for 4 years, developing his leadership skills and creating educational programs on local flora and fauna, as well as Peruvian archeology and history. Since becoming an official tour guide, he’s focused on Machu Picchu and the Cusco region, specializing in native Peruvian history and architecture. His passion lies in educating young children within his community to respect nature and to take pride in their legacy left behind by the Incas.

Peru Travel information
When to travel to Peru? Considering that Peru is categorized as one of the 17 megadiverse countries on earth, you have a variety of climates and seasons to consider. That being said, you can visit Peru year-round depending on where you would like to visit. However, if you are looking to explore the Amazonian rainforest or traverse through the Andes Mountains, many travelers choose to avoid the rainy season which runs from November to March with its peak between January and February. Visiting from April through October lands you in the generally dry winter season, which is an excellent time to visit Machu Picchu, experience a world-class trek, traverse the exotic Amazon Rain forest not to mention the other amazing destinations Peru has to offer. Speak with a Qosqo Expeditions Designer today to discover the best time for you to experience a luxury tour of Peru.
