Hello VW Fans, below are pictures of classic VW Buses and Beetles in Peru, taken by German VW enthusiasts Kristine and Tim in May 2013.

Kristine and Tim traveled through Peru to see Machu Picchu, Inka and the Volkswagen culture.

Since I have been in Peru in 2004, I was able to give good advice. The aircooled VW culture in Peru has changed from 2004 to 2013 a bit. In 2004, I saw many classic VW Beetle Taxis in Lima, unfortunate they are not there anymore. Click here to see my Peru VW pictures taken 2004.

Outside the capital, the Volkswagen live style did not change much. The people of Peru are still using the classic VW Buses and Beetles as a daily driver and so, there are interesting things to see. The name for the Volkswagen Beetle is "Escarabajo" in Peru.

The first pic shows a VW Bug and the Cathedral of Santo Domingo in Cusco Peru.

Enjoy classic VW Buses and Beetles at historic places in Peru.
