Money

on January 12, 2012

Our suggestion: There is no specific amount of money for all the clients; so please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing food, drinks, tipping, shopping.

Every person, every traveler is different and therefore spending money requirements may vary from one to the other, for example many travelers will prefer to purchase more souvenirs than most, some others will prefer to enjoy the best restaurants than others.

Food

on January 12, 2012

Our suggestion: Take it easy with the food the first day; the Peruvian cuisine is delicious but their ingredients will be new to your body which is not accustomed to many.

You will be remarkably surprised with the flavors, aromas, textures of the food in Perú, which actually is recognize all over the world.

Peru is home of the potato and has a wide selection of different varieties that make up part of their staple diet along with rice and many meat dishes. Don’t  miss dishes with quinoa!!

Water

on January 12, 2012

Our suggestion: Do not drink tap water, only bottled water

As visitor you might be concern about the water when outside your country and for good reason.  We will resume the problem as “the contents of the water” in Peru are different than the ones your body is used to, so your body might create adjustment problems for the digestive system. The time covered by your visit is not normally enough to allow you to accept the changes but with a little care you should have a trouble free visit.
