Shopping in Peru

The tremendous variety of shopping facilities Peru has to offer will amaze you – Especially in Lima and other main cities throughout the country. I can assure it will cater nearly all tastes and preferences.

You can shop on traditional fruit and veggie markets or in modern supermarkets. For clothes you have the choice between many fancy boutiques, department stores, street markets and everything in between.

So, enjoy your shopping experiences, either the modern or the traditional way.
