Peru Travel Advice
Make sure you are up-to-date with the pre-departure essentials before your trip to Peru.
Useful Tips for Peru Tours
The currency in Peru is the Nuevo Sol (PEN). We recommend that you wait until you go to the city center to change your money. Exchange rates are usually more favorable in the city.
ATMs are available and credit cards are widely accepted, except for small payments such as meals and snacks.
We recommend carrying cash with you at all times, especially when trekking the Inca trail.
The Food Scene
Peruvian cuisine is one of the most cherished in the world, bringing together techniques from Africa, Europe, and East Asia.
Try ceviche, the country’s signature dish. Picarones will complement your meal with their sweet taste.
Don’t leave before you get a taste of the iconic Pisco, Peru’s most popular spirit. Pisco Sour is a must-try cocktail.
Drinking tap water is not safe in Peru.
Are you traveling alone? You can stay in a single room if your accommodation in Peru has the single supplement option.
You can also choose to be roomed with a solo traveler of the same gender.
Feel free to contact your tour leader if you require assistance.
