Peru is a country in South America that’s home to a section of the Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, the famed ancient Incan city high in the Andes mountains.

The region around Machu Picchu, including the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail, and city of Cusco, is rich in archaeological sites. On Peru’s arid Pacific coast is the capital Lima. The bustling metropolis of 9.8 million people is one of South America’s largest cities.

Best Time to Visit Peru

The winter (May – September) is the driest season in Peru and the best time of year to travel, especially if you’re planning to visit Cusco or trek to Machu Picchu on the Inca trail.

I traveled to Peru in November, the beginning of summer (November – March). The weather in Lima was warm but chilly at night, but Cusco was cooler in the Andes. Summer is also the best season to check out Lima’s surf scene along the coast, you can take surf lessons from a local if you’re new to the sport or just go swimming for free.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Language: At the political level, Spanish is the official language of Peru and, in areas where they are common, Quechua, Aymara, and some other Indigenous languages are also the official language.

Currency: The currency in Peru is the Peruvian Peso.

Credit Cards and ATMs: Major hotels and restaurants accept credit cards but most small businesses and shops only accept cash. Not all ATMs in the country accept foreign bank accounts, but locals will sometimes accept/exchange foreign currency for you.

Plugs: The plugs in Peru are types A, B and C. The standard voltage is between 220 V, and the standard frequency is 60Hz. I recommend buying a universal adapter and using a converter for hairdryers and hot tools.

Safety: Overall Peru is a very safe country. You may come across petty crime if you’re not careful as is true in many countries.
