Budget

Traveling through Peru can be very cheap, but also very expensive. If you are satisfied with a simple hostel, basic food and less comfortable travel, you have to pay between 10, -and 20€/day. If everything should be a little bit better, then you should have a budget between 50-70€/day.

The sellers, bus and taxi drivers, but also the restaurant owners like to charge more for foreigners, but in our case they were very honest. Helicopter flights are also more expensive, for example via Machu Picchu or via the Nazca lines, and also the entrance fees are not that cheap.

ATMs are available in the big cities.
We recommend BCP(no fees) or Scotiabank!

In the city you can drive by little taxis like tuk tuk in thailand.
But also you can use registered taxis.

Safety

South America is known a little bit criminal. So avoid to walk on the streets at night. But in case at night you can get a registered taxi. One good tip. Ask in your accommodation for safety informations.
