:: FOR YOUR SAFETY
While touring or shopping leave your passport and the bulk of your money in the hotel’s safebox. Only take with you the money you intend to spend. Take a copy of the picture page of your passpor to carry in your wallet you may need to exchange traveler’s checks or in case your passport is lost.
Do not change money with street changers.
:: INTERNET ACCESS
Public internet booths or cabinas are widely available in major cities throughout Peru, but few are of the cybercafe variety. Most are simple cubicles with terminals. The average cost for 1 hour is less than $ 1. Many cabinas now feature software to make very inexpensive international phone calls via the internet.
