  TRAVEL TIPS PERU
  Informations for Travelers:

⇒  Peru is located on the central west coast of South America: 

Its neighboring countries are: Ecuador and Colombia to the N; Chile to the S; Brazil and Bolivia to the E; and the Pacific Ocean to the W. It is the third largest country in South America, with a surface area of 1 285 215,6 km2 (larger than France, Spain, and Germany combined) distributed approximately in the following manner: 12% coastal territory, 28% Andean highlands and 60% Amazon jungle. Its capital, Lima, is located in the coastal area, where the country's greatest economic activities take place.

⇒  Time Zone:

Peruvian time is five hours past Greenwich Mean Time and is similar to Eastern Standard Time in the United States (except when the U.S. goes on daylight savings time from April to October). In reference to other cities, when it is noon in Peru, it is: Santiago de Chile and Caracas 13:00 Rio de Janeiro 14:00 New York 12:00 Tokyo 03:00

⇒  Weather:

 Peru's climate may be divided into two: The Western Andes and the Desert Coast. On the Coast, it does not rain and the temperature is warm trough the year. On the other hand, in the Andes, there are two seasons: Rainy and dry. As Cusco is situated in the Eastern Andes its rainy season is between October and May.

The rest of the year, it is dry: Rainy time, starting in October/ November has its own maximum in January, continuing until March/ April. In some years, it has meant landslides, floods, etc.
In High altitude cities, it is cold in the evenings but sunny and warm in the mornings. It is even possible to wear t-shirts, but when the sun sets it gets really chilly so please bring a warm sweater (or buy an alpaca one in Cusco) and a good jacket.

⇒  Altitude :
- Lima: Sea level, 54 m / 177 ft (a.s.l) (above sea level)
- Cusco: 3,360 m / 11, 028 ft (a.s.l)
- Machu Picchu: 2,400 m / 7,875 ft (a.s.l)
- Urubamba Valley: 2,850 m / 9,348 ft (a.s.l)

⇒  Water
Tap water in most of Peru is potable, but the chemical content varies from place to
place. To avoid problems, we recommend you to always drink bottled water.

⇒  Visas
All travelling passengers should refer to their closest Peruvian Embassy to check which visas are required, although current visa requirements may be subject to change at any time.

⇒  Language
The official languages of Peru are Spanish, spoken by 73% of the population, and
Quechua spoken by 24% of Peruvians. English is widely spoken in hotels and shops.

⇒  Currency
Peru's official currency is the Nuevo sol ; its symbol is S/. The denominations in circulation are bills of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 nuevos soles; coins of 1, 2, and 5 nuevos soles; and coins of 5, 10, 20 and 50 céntimos of a nuevo sol. US$ are widely accepted. At the moment, US$ 1.00 is worth around 3.20 Nuevos Soles.

⇒  Tipping
Whilst tipping is a personal matter, we are happy to give some guidelines: Most restaurants add a 10% tip. The total tip should be about 15%.Doorkeepers should be tipped 1 US$ per bag. Taxi drivers do not expect a tip.

⇒ Photography:

If you are taking photographs of local people, always ask their permission beforehand. Your guide can assist you in this. Do not take photographs of military installations or airports. Film is readily available in all tourist areas. It is advisable to carry your camera in a dust-proof bag. Photography or camera fees are applicable at most sights and museums; your guide can give you details of the latest charges.

⇒  Electricity:

Peru's electrical current is 220 volts AC 60 cycles. However, special travel adapters can be purchased to enable all normal plugs to fit all mains sockets.

⇒  Vaccinations:

Full details of the latest health requirements should be obtained from an authorized medical source, such as your doctor and/or HBS Health Services (ask for Sharon Follayttar). There are no mandatory health requirements for Peru. Because you are visiting Andean areas, don't forget to take precautions to avoid altitude sickness. Be sure to try hot tea or infusion of coca leaves on your arrival in the altitude; during your first day move slowly and eat lightly.

⇒  Peruvian Gastronomy:
Peruvian cuisine is highly varied and spicy. Some of our typical dishes are: "cebiche" (raw fish marinated in lemon juice), "aji de gallina" (de-boned chicken cooked in a milk and aji sauce), and "anticuchos" (shish kebabs of beef heart and meat), apart from the typical dishes from each region. Be sure to try "Pisco Sour", Peru's typical mixed drink prepared with pisco, lemon, egg white and sugar.
