Recommendations

Recommendations for traveling to Peru:
Plan your trip to Peru with the necessary information to make a pleasant and memorable trip with information on what you need to take during your trip.

Documents you should bring – Money in Peru – Luggage – Type of footwear – Personal cleanliness – Mosquito repellent – Weather in Peru – Electricity in Peru – feeding – Health and medicines

Documents you must bring:
To enter Peru, you must present your valid passport; depending on the country of origin, you need to obtain a visa to enter Peru. (Visitors from the US, Canada and the European Union do not need a visa.)

Consult details on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Peru (http://www.rree.gob.pe/SitePages/home.aspx) or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of your country. You must carry your passport with you at all times because it can be requested in various establishments and places of tourist interest. If you need a certain kind of medicine or have a health problem, you should keep your medical history.

It is recommended to purchase travel insurance and make sure that the minimum coverage includes: trip cancellation or interruption, mishaps with your luggage or documents, medical expenses, emergency assistance. Have a copy of your insurance policy throughout your trip.

Money in Peru:
In Peru you can exchange money in banks and exchange houses (Dollars, Euros, and other currencies). Avoid carrying damaged or torn Dollar or Euro bills because they are not accepted in Peru or have a lower price. Cash can be obtained at ATMs and banks. It is suggested to bring cash for food and purchases because few places accept credit cards (and they charge an 8 to 10% commission). We recommend bringing Dollar or Euro bills that will be accepted in businesses related to tourism, but not in all. It is better to change your money to national currency SOLES and avoid painting or tearing the bills because some establishments will not accept them.

Luggage:
Airlines and train networks apply weight limits to luggage per person and there are restrictions on carrying some risky items. Consider that it is better to pack light.

Clothing:
Depending on the season of the year and place to visit during your stay in Peru, you can find days of radiant sunshine with temperatures of 20 to 30°C and sometimes cloudy skies with sporadic to heavy rains, because Peru has irregular terrain and of varied altitudes from sea level to 5000 meters above sea level.

Temperatures can have extreme changes between day and night. It is recommended to bring clothing for the cold and heat.
Bring a swimsuit if you plan to visit places with hot springs.
Some tourist sites are located in high places and the sun’s rays are more intense and it is recommended to use hats or sunscreen.
Recommended footwear:
Many of the places you will visit have irregular terrain and variable weather, therefore it is recommended to wear hiking shoes (tennis shoes) that have good grip and are closed.

Personal cleanliness:
Hotels and tourist hostels in Peru offer soap, towels and other items, but you can bring your own toiletries.

Mosquito Repellents:
If you visit places in the jungle or warm places like Machupicchu, it is recommended to bring insect repellent.

Electricity in Peru:
Electrical energy in Peru is 220 volts AC at 60Hz. (as used in North America) and single round plugs (as used in continental Europe) are standard in Peru. If you have a device with a different type of connection you will need an adapter (you can borrow it from the hotel).

La Alimentación:
En Perú existe variedad en la gastronomía y restaurantes que ofertan distintos platos al gusto del cliente.
Se recomienda consumir alimentos preferentemente bien cocinados.
El agua del grifo en el Perú no puede ser apta para personas con bajas defensas y se recomienda usar o beber agua embotellada.
Lavar los alimentos o cepillarse los dientes con agua embotellada. Algunos hoteles incluyen agua embotellada dentro de su servicio.
Salud y Medicamentos:
El malestar más común de los viajeros al Perú es el mal de altura (Soroche), con síntomas como dolor de cabeza, falta de aire, fatiga e insomnio.
Evite esfuerzo físico y alimentos pesados durante los primeros días de su estadía en lugares de altura.
Puede adquirir medicamentos como Soroche-pill o Acetozolamida en caso planea viajar a lugares de altura (previa consulta con su médico).
Beber agua y té de coca es de gran ayuda durante el periodo de aclimatación.
No se requieren vacunas para visitar el Perú, pero en caso de viajar a zonas de selva es requisito la vacuna para la fiebre amarilla (previa consulta con su médico).
