General recommendations:


Passport and Visas

Peru is basically a country of open doors. The entry into Peru for Citizens of some countries does not require a tourist visa. The maximum period of stay granted by the authorities is 183 days (cannot be extended).


 IMPORTANT: Passengers who are not U.S. citizens must check with the respective consulate or a visa agency to determine what personal identification is required. Check here if you need a visa: https://www.gob.pe/1062-obtener-visa-para-ingresar-al-peru

* It is each traveler's responsibility to have a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the dates of travel and a visa if required.

Travel Insurance:

Travel insurance is strongly recommended but not obligatory. Please bring this information (company name and policy number) for our records if you don’t have insurance. We suggest the following site: http://www.squaremouth.com/

Weather – In the highlands, including Cusco, the dry season lasts from April to October, when it is usually warm and sunny, although nights can be cold. Weather is more changeable in March and November, and rain is more common, although temperatures are higher. The rainy season is at its heaviest from December to February. On the coast, including Lima, it is warm and humid for much of the year, with overcast skies broken by occasional sunshine from April to November. December to March is usually sunny. Rain is rare at any time of the year. So, is warm in the day and cold at night, bring clothes for both warm and cold weather – you can buy things like hats and gloves here...double up as souvenirs!

Money – Money Withdrawal:

In order to avoid fraud, it is advisable that you withdraw money from ATMs located inside Banks or guarded shops during business hours only. from Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.And on Saturdays until noon.

Avoid surprises, in Cusco most of the ATMs have a limit of money to be withdrawn per transaction and it is usually $ 200 or 700 Peruvian soles and for each transaction they charge a commission of $ 10.00.

The Nuevo Sol (S /.) Is the official currency of Peru. There are tickets with denominations of 10, 20,50, 100 and 200 soles. There are coins of 10, 20 and 50 cents, as well as 1, 2 and 5 new soles. When you are changing dollars into Peruvian soles ask for small notes – 10s/ and 20s/ preferably (you will see that no-one ever has any change here so finding someone to take your 100 soles note is sometimes difficult).

ATMs  can be found in almost every city in the country and most are connected to the Plus (Visa) and Cirrus (MasterCard / Maestro), American Express and others networks. They can withdraw money in new soles or US dollars, but the exchange rate is usually higher.

*When you withdraw money from the bank your card is returned AFTER your money not before like in other countries – be careful not to leave your card in the machine.

Safety – Many national governments provide a regularly updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all areas your itinerary covers, as is the case anywhere in the world, crime can be a problem, especially in large cities. To minimize the risk, use common sense. Do not display signs of wealth, such as expensive-looking jewelry or cameras, We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while traveling, for the safe-keeping of your passport, flight tickets, cash, and other

valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry at home - you won't need it while traveling. Many of our hotels have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.Simple measures like carrying your day pack on your front, not hanging your bag over the back of your chair or on the floor and wearing a money belt will reduce any chance that your valuables should go missing.

Don't let your personal belongings out of your sight. Avoid using unofficial or unmarked taxis during the night. Avoid exchanging currency in the street or carrying large sums of money.

Currency exchange agencies are safe.

Each country has its own standards for health and safety, but these are often not as good as in your country. We take this into account when selecting hotels and request that they comply with all local regulations, but cannot guarantee that these are equivalent to British standards. Please take reasonable precautions to protect yourselves whilst on holiday, e.g. by locating fire exit routes.
