Experiencing any type of big or small emergency while visiting a foreign country can be quite stressful and sometimes even scary. But there is no need to panic if you get mugged or robbed, need emergency medical attention, become unexpectedly sick and have to consult or even stay in a hospital or just need a special medicine during your stay in Peru. Even if you won't expect it in a "3rd World Country", here in Peru you will find exemplary services and professionals. Be aware that the further you get away from Lima, the choices will be fairly limited!
Our listing of emergency numbers and contact details for the tourist police and police stations, for good ambulance services, for pharmacies including places where to find homeopathic and natural medicine, for recommended hospitals and various institutions giving you support, will help you find the right service in case you need it. Hopefully, you won't need any of them, but it's always better to be prepared.
Botikas Homeoperú are one of the best sorted pharmacies in Lima (now as well Ica and Cusco) selling homeopathic dilutions according to Dr. Hahnemann and Bach Flowers as well as prepared creams and ointments.
The voluntary fire brigades (Bomberos Voluntarios del Peru) of Lima's districts and of some other cities in Peru respond to any kind of medical emergency quickly and provide an excellent service free of charge (a donation is more than appreciated and needed).
