Why are grandparents so keen to travel with their grandchildren? With families now living around the country, traveling with grandparents is one way for kids to spend quality time with the older generation. Grandma and Grandpa are more likely than parents to be in a position to foot the bill for educational and experiential travel. While parents take care of the day to day needs, grandparents have the liberty to travel for the right reasons. To generate lasting memories and life-changing experiences with their grandkids. And if you ask the kids? There's something magical about traveling with your grandparents. Whether it's because they share a common enemy or because grandparents will patiently answer questions like, "why do dogs chase cats?" Everyone knows that grandparents make the best babysitters! Come on down and explore Peru with your grandchild.

Things to know:
