During your stay in Peru
During your visit to Peru, it is important that you take the precautions that are shared among the world’s main cities and tourist destinations, such as not neglecting your belongings in public places or avoiding deserted places at night. Besides, we recommend taking the following:
- Consider getting a copy of your passport, airplane tickets, and credit cards; likewise, think about the option of leaving your personal documents in the safekeeping of the hotel and taking the copies with you.
- Discover where the unsafe areas of the city are and avoid visiting them, especially at night. Also consult the appropriate hours for visiting tourist attractions.
- If you must exchange money, do so in banks, exchange houses, or in your hotel. Avoid doing this in plain sight.
- If you drive a car, try using a parking garage or similar service. Do not leave it in dark spots or leave valuables in plain sight.
