Exchanging US Dollar, Euro, GBP, AUD, CAD & BRL into Peruvian Nuevos Soles

Since 1991 the Nuevo Sol is Peru's currency. However, almost everywhere in Lima the US Dollar is accepted. The international code for the Peruvian currency Nuevo Sol (S/.) is PEN. The Nuevo Sol is subdivided into 100 Centimos. There are banknotes for S/. 10, S/. 20, S/. 50, S/. 100 and S/. 200. Coins have been issued for 5 Centimos, 10 Centimos, 20 Centimos, 50 Centimos, S/. 1, S/. 2 and S/. 5. Nowadays the Nuevo Sol is a quite stable currency with a moderate inflation and has more or less steady exchange rates with the US Dollar and Euro.

Our published exchange rates are an average/mix of the rates you should get (as reference!) in the local banks, exchange offices and official money exchangers (called "Cambistas"). Whenever changing money you should verify the rates form different sources. Hotels (and the exchange offices at the Lima International Airport) generally will give you very low exchange rates in Peru and you should verify before losing...

Old Peruvian Inti banknotes are no legal tender anymore! You can't exchange them anywhere! While the one or other bill might have a value for a collector if in impeccable condition, Intis are except for their sentimental value unfortunately worthless!

Exchange Rate Evolution: Nuevos Soles per US$1 (end of each year)

Peru has a free-floating exchange rate regime, with the government occasionally intervening for purposes of stabilization. As of the end of 2013, the Nuevo Sol is one of the least volatile currencies in the world, exhibiting firmness in the face of international market and currency fluctuations. The Central Reserve Bank of Peru (BCRP) implements fiscal stimulus and liquidity control measures.
