Peru Placeholder

Peru is unspeakably beautiful, with some of the deepest, richest history anywhere in the western world. Machu Picchu is perhaps the place everyone in the world should see, as its stunning scenery and the story attached to it give one an intense feeling of appreciation. Coastal and mountains, dry deserts and rain forests, Peru has it all.

Capital City: Lima

Language: Spanish. It helps to know some basic Spanish questions, as many vendors and store owners may not speak English.

Currency: Peruvian Sol (PEN). PEN is currently a bit over 3 for 1 USD.

Power Adapter: In Peru the power sockets are of type A and C. The standard voltage is 220 V and the standard frequency is 60 Hz.

Crime & Safety: We’ve never, for one second, felt unsafe in Peru. Parts of Lima are very low-income and heavily-populated, but it’s generally not the type of area you’re going to go as a tourist. Stay in the Miraflores area, and you’re fine. The rest of the country is completely safe.

Emergency Number: 105 for Police, 117 for Ambulance
