Peruvians express their culture through their music, literature, art forms, dance, clothing, celebrations, religion, education, sports and clothing.
Art in Peru has been an important part of its culture for thousands of years dating back to pre-Inca times.
Relationships, Marriage, & Family Life in Peru Most young men and women live with their parents until they marry in Peru, at which time they usually move into a new home with their spouse.
In some areas, primarily the Andes, there is a growing trend of young people moving out of their parents' house prior to marriage in order to find a job in a large city like Lima.
Peru’s culture is a set of beliefs, customs and way of life inherited from the native Incas, Spanish conquistadors and settlers.
Immigrant groups such as Africans, Japanese, Chinese and Europeans have also contributed to the society, blend of cultures and ways in which Peruvians live.
In many cases generations of a family live together where the younger look after the elderly and help each other in difficult times.
On one hand – the girls in Peru are not nearly as hot as other Latin American women.
On the other hand – the girls you’ll meet in Lima will be sweet girls that like to have fun. That being said – you have a much better chance of actually enjoying your time with some of the women you’ll meet in Lima (and all over Peru). Just like there is no perfect city – there is no perfect type of woman.
Body language and gestures are apt to be demonstrative and expressive, as is typical with many Latin American cultures.
Once a friendship has been established, men frequently greet each other with a hug, and women may kiss one another on the cheek.
