Peru is one of the beautiful countries that Geauxing Place Travel can help you plan a visit to. But it also comes in handy to be prepared yourself. If you intend to have a fun, once-in-a-lifetime adventure visit to Peru, the following tips will be helpful on your journey.

  • Enjoy the Country’s Beauty
  • The whole country is beautiful. You won’t have to go to the big places before you’ll be wowed. Peru is a breathtaking destination with amazing sunsets. You’ll be glad you visited.

  • Try the Local Restaurants
  • Peru is one country with delicious food scattered around. Lima is one of the known food capitals in the world so if you want to partake and visit places like the number 5 restaurant in the world, you’ll have to ask for reservations months in advance. Having a list of recommended eateries that you can visit before getting there is bound to help.

  • Stay Hydrated
  • You’ll need to double your water intake in Peru. All your exploring and the high altitude will leave you feeling thirsty so be sure to have an extra bottle of water handy. You can’t drink the tap water in Peru.

  • Exchange Your Money for The Local Currency
  • Woven socks, alpaca sweaters, and blankets are some of the handmade goods that Peru is famous for. You won’t, however, find an ATM handy, so it’s best to exchange your money into the local currency for your stay there.

  • The Weather Is Unpredictable
  • When it comes to the weather in Peru, be prepared for it all. From sunny weather to rain, thunder, lightning, and even hail, make sure to pack appropriate gear when visiting. The weather in Peru can be quite unpredictable.

  • Have Bug Spray and Sunscreen Handy
  • Regardless of what season you visit in, have your sunscreen handy. You could have hot sunshine in the middle of the rainy season. We advise taking yours along from home as you may not find a place to get one when you all of a sudden need it.

  • Altitude Sickness Is Not A Myth
  • Some places in Peru have an altitude of over 11,000 feet, so if you’ve never experience altitudes of that level before, you can’t exactly predict how you would react. You might fall victim to some conditions, the least of which is a slight headache. Having altitude sickness tablets can be a great relief. It also not advisable to drink too much water before your visit as you may throw up. A better idea is to go with lots of water that you can then drink there as your body adjusts.
