travel tips and safety advice for peru

Most travelers planning a trip to Peru have already heard or read good meant warnings and tips about the safety and security situation in the country before even exiting the plane. Once in the country, even locals might warn you about dangers lurking around every corner.

Although crime is present in Peru and cannot be argued away, most (though not all) warnings are – at least for people like you and me - unfounded; often potential risks are hopelessly exaggerated, and fears unnecessarily fueled. Keep an open mind, be aware of your surroundings and use your common sense!

To give Peru travelers and newly arrived expats a comprehensive overview of the actual situation in the country, we are covering every conceivable aspect regarding safety and security including useful travel tips in this "Safety, Security & Travel Advice Peru" series.

Please take your time and read through the articles in this series as they contain very helpful information to ensure you stay safe when traveling and staying in Peru!
