Love Peru

Step back in time to a place that feels truly historic and occasionally mysterious. From the wonder that is Macchu Picchu to the still curious geoglyphs that are drawn into the Earth, everything in Peru feels authentic, pure and special.

It’s not all ruins and worlds of yore however, there is a modern charm that runs throughout the nation. Amazing restaurants and a buzzing nightlife can be found in the capital city of Lima. If you are looking to celebrate, partake in the vibrant festival of Carnivale where party goers spill into the streets bringing them to life with music and merriment. 

Trying to get away from city life? Well the Amazon and Andes are only a short journey away from the hectic metropolis. Travel out of the city to enter a completely different world that is lush in greenery and rich in history. Peru is an explorer’s dream with trails spread throughout the nation for bikers and hikers a like. Ziplines, rafting and Amazon trekking make this the ideal destination for the active traveler. 

Of course a trip to Peru would not be complete without sampling the distinctive cuisine which can vary from the fresh to the gourmet . With Indigenous, colonial, and Asian influence, your palate will not be bored and we can guarantee you will not find such a complex offering elsewhere.

General Information

First things first, tipping in Peru is usual.  At restaurants a 10% charge is added to the bill but if not you’d be expected to add 10% when making payment.

The dress code around Peru is as you’d expect in a modern society, casual is fine (although you’ll see a lot of people in climbing a trekking gear which is fine too!)

One thing to be slightly cautious of is discussing politics.  Peru has had some issues with corruption and this is a sensitive subject for many people as you’d imagine.  Of course, discussing drugs and religion should ale be handled with care.  One note, chewing coca leaves is not drug use! this is long tradition in this region.

Bargaining when shopping is widely accepted so one can haggle which can be a lot of fun!

Peru offers wonderful photography opportunities with such epic landscape and vibrant colours.  People generally don’t mind having their photograph taken but some may ask for a ‘donation’ which is not uncommon in many tourist areas, just something to be aware of.

Peru is a very friendly country with welcoming people.  As always, showing respect to local people, traditions and culture will help make your trip even more enjoyable.

Visa

British nationals don’t need a visa to travel if the purpose of the visit is tourism.

If you are travelling for any other purpose, check entry clearance requirements with the  Peruvian Consulate-General in London.

On arrival, you’re normally given permission to stay for up to 6 months.

Double check the period of time you’ve been granted. If you overstay, you’ll need to pay a fine. In the worst case scenario you could be held in detention. Keep the immigration paper given to you on arrival in a safe place, as you will need to show this on departure.

Weather

Peru is split roughly into three seasons however, a word of warning, as we are sure you know Peru sits on the coast but also has very high mountain ranges.  As with all mountain ranges the weather can quickly change and the idea of a ‘season’ is very loose.

The three seasons are Low (also known as Rainy) , Shoulder (also known as Spring and Autumn) and High.  Low season runs from December through to February and this time of year can be cold from the coast to the mountains, very cold in the mountains!  The Inca Trail is closed every year during February for maintenance and cleaning whilst in the Amazon the rains can last through until May.

The Shoulder season runs from March – May and September – November.  During these periods the tourist sites are less crowded and very good for those who aren’t fussed about getting a tan.  It’s also cooler than big season and so ideal for trekking in the Amazon however it’s worth keeping an eye on the rains!  During the rainy season some parts of the Amazon are inaccessible and / or not so pleasant for trekking!

High season, running from June – August is hot, as you’d expect.  This is full tourist season and so can be busy but not over powering.  The beaches are busy and lively and trekking the Inca Trail or in the Amazon is in full swing.  This is a wonderful time to visit but remember, it shall be warm!

Visitor Thoughts

Here are some comments from recent travellers….

David L June 20167:  “We recently visited Peru on an Inca Trail tour and we had the time of our lives.  We’d always wanted to see Machu Picchu and experience what Peru had to offer, the trip did not disappoint.  We hope to visit again as there is much more to see, we didn’t get to go to the Amazon or spend enough time in Lima but these re good excuses to return.”

Amy B June 2017:  “I travelled to Peru on my own, I was nervous at first as I was on my own and on a group tour but looking back I had no need to be.  The group wee great and made up of singles and couples.  The tour leader was brilliant and made sure were were all ok.  I am so glad I went, a great experience.”

Stuart P April 2017:  “The tour was brilliant.  I was worried about sharing with another traveller who I’d never met but it was fine although I was glad I took ear plugs!”

Getting There

There are lots of flights daily and direct from the UK to Lima.  We recommend using a search engine like Skyscanner or Momondo to help you find the flight you want.  Prices vary throughout the year but the general rule is the earlier you book the better the price you’ll get.  For lower prices consider taking an indirect flight, whilst longer you may find the price considerably lower than if travelling direct.
