Travel and Getting Around:

Most of the cities are navigable by walking or taxi. Taxis are the easiest and most direct way of getting around. Rides can be arranged by your hotel reception desk.

Language:

Spanish is the most widely-spoken language in Peru. Whether you’ve never spoken, Spanish before, or need to brush up your skills, it is best to know some phrases as you’ll find fewer English speakers outside of the tourist areas. Some things to know, or have handy:

  • Basic phrases

  • Taxi travel
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping

Travel Visa:

Please check if you have a different citizenship as there may be additional visa requirements here: http://www.rree.gob.pe/servicioalciudadano/Documents/VisasXExtranEnero2012.pdf

Money:

Peru’s national currency is the Peruvian Sole. There are plenty of ATM in Peru, from which you can withdrawal Peruvian soles or US dollars, there are also ATM in many supermarkets. You can also change your US dollars at the “casa de cambio” (money exchanges houses), which always give better rates than a local bank. Most stores will accept Peruvian Sole, or Visa credit card. Some smaller stores may accept Peruvian Sole only. Be aware, any bills with a rip or tear in them are not accepted due to problems with counterfeiting.

Weather:

Peru has three main climatic zones: The tropical Amazon Jungle to the east, The Arid Costal Desert to the west; and the Andean Mountains and Highlands in the middle of the country. Peru’s climate varies depending on where you visit. On the coast it is usually quite hot although during the winter (April-August) it can get chilly early in the morning and at night. In the Andes there are two main seasons – wet and dry. The wet season runs from November to April and is wet but usually warmer overall. The dry season runs from May to October and has hot clear days but cold nights. The only one thing you can say about the weather in Peru is that it is difficult to accurately predict. You can beautifully clear hot days in the middle of the wet season and hail storms in the dry season – it’s one of the beauties of Peru.

Clothes:

In each city (Lima, Arequipa, Puno, Cusco, Aguas Calientes), there are places where you can do the laundry or if you want you can do it at the Hotel.

Vaccinations:

Yellow fever vaccination is recommended for all travelers older than 9-months of age going to areas above 2,300 meters in elevation, in the following: the entire regions of Amazonas, Loreto, Madre de Dios, San Martin, and Ucayali.
