Everything You Need To Know About Your Peru Travels

Once home to the expansive Inca Empire, Peru is a favorite destination for every type of traveler. With its natural beauty, ancient Inca sites, diverse ecosystem, and outstanding cuisine, Peru is a destination of many wonders. 

Top Places to Visit in Peru

One of the most famous places in Peru is – without a doubt – the magnificent Machu Picchu. While this ancient citadel is a definite must-see, there are countless other places worth exploring. 

Some of the standouts are the city of Cusco, the ancient Inca Trail, the Salkantay Trek, and (of course) the breathtaking Sacred Valley. Other places worth a visit are the wonderful Peruvian Amazon Jungle and the colorful Rainbow Mountain. 

When Is the Best Time to Visit Peru?

Typically, winter (May to October) is the driest season, making it the preferred time for visiting Peru’s tourist attractions

The summer season (November to April) is warmer, but also experiences the most rain. Travel at this time offers certain advantages, such as greener scenery and exploring the major attractions with fewer tourists around. 

Peru Travel Requirements 

Most tourists can stay in Peru for a period of up to 183 days. Citizens of the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and the European Union are not required to apply for a visa prior to travel. It is necessary to have a valid passport with at least one blank page available for the entry stamp in order to enter the country.

Visitors from other countries, however, may need to obtain a tourist visa before arriving in the country. For more information regarding entry requirements, contact your nearest Peruvian Consulate. 

Travel Budget

Peru is a fairly inexpensive destination. If staying in one place, you may be able to get by on as little as $20 to $25 a day. This includes budget accommodation and eating at local restaurants. But because of the numerous attractions throughout the country, traveling to historic sites will add to your costs. Before heading off, make sure you have carefully planned out your Peru activities

Getting Around Peru

With 5 international and 18 domestic airports, one of the best ways to travel around Peru is by plane. Buses are another popular and inexpensive option, with plenty of companies operating short- and long-distance routes.
