The South American country of Peru is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world — with its Amazon rainforest landscape, the Andean mountain range (the longest mountain range in the world), and its beautiful Pacific coastline, Peru is certainly one for nature lovers. Its capital Lima and exciting tourist hub Cusco have been attracting expats for years. Many expats find Peruvian people to be very friendly and welcoming, and have found they have a number of local friends in the country. The cost of living is relatively low, and the crime rates are much lower than in some of its other South American counterparts, such as Colombia. Peru is the world's second largest producer of silver and third largest producer of copper, and its trade and export economies have continued to grow over the last few years. Many expats move to Peru with an international company or find work teaching English or translating.
