Peru is typically a safe place to visit, but like with any location, tourists should use caution to protect themselves. It’s crucial to be attentive and take precautions like avoiding walking alone at night, keeping valuables secure, and being aware of common scams because crime, including petty theft and scams, can occur in tourist areas.
It’s also a good idea to research your destination and remain up to date on any travel advisories, as some areas of Peru, especially isolated ones, may have safety issues due to political or social upheaval.
The official language of Peru is Spanish. Don’t worry, you’ll get along fine if you don’t speak any Spanish, as many people speak English in the tourist regions.
This depends on how much time you have available. We highly recommend to come to Peru for at least 5-7 days so that you can discover the must-visit sites, such as Cusco, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley and more
Banks, exchange facilities, and authorized currency exchange offices, which are frequently located in tourist destinations, are places where you can exchange money in Peru. Besides that, you’ll find many ATMs, especially in the major cities and popular tourist destinations. Visa, Mastercard, and Cirrus/Maestro are among the international cards that are commonly accepted at ATMs. More info in our guide to money exchange in Peru.
Tipping is normally not required in Peru, however it is appreciated for good service. Here are some general recommendations about Peruvian tipping:
Restaurants: A 10% gratuity is frequently charged as a “servicio” charge on restaurant bills. If so, there is no need for you to leave a second tip. The general rule is to leave a 10% tip if the “servicio” price is not included.
Tour guides: Tipping the guide and the driver after the tour tour is common. Depending on the length and caliber of the tour, a reasonable tip ranges from 20 to 50 soles per participant.
Hotels: Although tipping is not expected at hotels, it is customary to give the housekeeping crew a little gratuity. Every night, a tip of five to ten soles is reasonable.
Taxis: While rounding up fares to the nearest full amount is normal, tipping taxi drivers is no common practice in Peru. If your fare is 17 soles, for instance, you may give the driver 20 soles and instruct him or her to keep the change.
The number one airline we recommend for traveling within Peru is Latam Airlines. They are by far the most reliable airline in the country.
