Tips for Peru
Violence against tourists is rare but theft is extremely common. Hold on tight to your things!
Avoid soccer stadiums before and after big games. Soccer fans can get very rowdy.
Peru’s currency is the Nuevo Sol. However, the American dollar is accepted on occasion.
Do not drink tap water. Only drink bottled or boiled water.
Adventure have to be healthy
Even cloudy Lima can surprise you with the strength of the sun when it makes its way through the fog. Make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen, hat and a good pair of sunglasses.
In the mountains, the lack of oxygen and strong sun will dry your skin rapidly. Make sure to pack some hydrating creams or lotions, and don’t forget a good lip balm.
If you’re planning a trip to the jungle, it’s mandatory that you take a good repellent for gnats and mosquitoes. Try to find one made of natural ingredients.
People who live in colder climates race to the sunshine to top up their tans and people
from countries which are constantly hot may travel to places to try activities such as skiing
which they could not do so easily in their home country.
Are you unlucky in love? Live in a small town and just can’t meet anyone? Then go travelling!
Some people like adventures and to escape their normal monotonous life. They like not knowing
what they can expect and want to deepen their knowledge in other lifestyles.
