FAQ

Find the most frequently asked questions below.

Yes, Peru has a level 2 safety rating by the US State Department same as the UK and France just take standard safety precautions and enjoy the trip.

No, you DON’T need a visa to enter the country. You will be issued a tourist visa upon arrival so make sure you have a blank page on your passport and a return ticket. The visa is a ONE TIME use only, meaning you cannot use it again for reentry and is valid for up to 183 days.

Currently UBER is only available in Lima, but don’t panic! There are other reliable options such as Cabify. Ask your tour leader for other alternatives.

There are some recommended vaccines if your traveling to Peru. A Yellow Fever vaccine is probably the most important. Yellow Fever is spread by mosquitoes in tropical climates—it’s not super common in Peru, but there have been some reported cases. If you have specific concerns speak to your doctor.

We wouldn’t recommend it. Peru’s tap water doesn’t meet the WHO standards for clean drinking water, and most locals don’t drink it. You should boil the water from your tap to sterilize it, or just stick to bottled water to be safe.

Altitude sickness can happen but don’t let it stress you out! Just stay hydrated, take it slow, and get plenty of sleep. Local cocoa tea can be a great remedy if the altitude makes you feel uneasy.

Peru uses the Peruvian Sol (PEN)—the current exchange rate is about 3.5 Sol to $1 USD as of August 2022.

Peru uses 220V outlets. That means if your device operates on 110V, you’ll need to buy a voltage converter. Although most of the devices we travel with (laptops, phone chargers, cameras, etc.) are dual voltage, so they won’t need a converter but always check the User Manual of your device.

As far as outlets go, Peru uses both Type A (those are the flat 2-prong plugs we use here in America) and Type C, which has 3 round prongs. You’ll want to get a Type C converter before you go—you can easily find one in the airport or at any travel store.
