Peru is a country in western South America, bordered by the countries Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Ecuador as well as by the Pacific Ocean in the West. Due to its extreme biodiversity the habitats range from the Andes mountains to the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region to the tropical Amazon rainforest in the east.
The official language is Spanish, although different native languages, such as Quechua are spoken among many Peruvians. Peru was colonized in the 16th century by the Spanish Empire until it claimed and secured independence in 1824.
The currency is the ‘Peruvian sol’ (PEN) which is the Spanish word for ‘sun’. It is subdivided into 100 céntimos (‘cents’). One US dollar equals approximately 3.22 PEN (January 2018).
