GASTRONOMY

Peruvian gastronomy dates back to the pre-Inca and Inca cultures, already having ingredients such as corn, different varieties of potatoes and spices. Our cuisine has evolved with the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors and the different migratory waves of Chinese, European, Indian and Japanese citizens (mainly throughout the 19th century), exchange of cultures has given way to the fusion of new dishes and throughout history and events have taken a place in our tables, festivals and typical customs. Travelers will have the opportunity to taste many local specialties! Here are some culinary delights not to be missed during your next trip to Peru:
  • Ceviche, the national dish of Peru. It is a seafood dish, typically made with fresh raw fish cooked in fresh lime juice and seasoned with aji, chili peppers, chopped onion and salt.
  • Pisco Sour, an alcoholic cocktail of Peruvian origin! The name of the drink comes from pisco, a grape liquor. The cocktail consists of the base liquor pisco, freshly squeezed lemon juice, simple syrup, ice and egg white. very refreshing!
  • Té de coca, herbal tea made from raw or dried leaves of the coca plant, native to South America. The infusion has many benefits and is used for altitude sickness.
  • Lomo Saltado, a popular traditional Peruvian dish, a stir-fry that typically combines marinated sirloin steak strips with onions, tomatoes, fried potatoes and other ingredients. It is usually served with rice.
  • Conejillo de Indias, commonly called "Cuy". It is cooked in the oven and often served with vegetables.
  • Anticucho: meat dish consisting of small pieces of meat skewered and grilled, the most popular of which is made with beef heart, called "anticuchos de corazón".

HEALTH AND PERSONAL CARE INFORMATION

  • Do not drink tap water unless it is boiled or purified with tablets.
  • Beware of meat and fish based meals in local markets! It is recommended to try Peruvian dishes in restaurants.
  • Peru does not require any vaccinations for entry, although it recommends vaccination against yellow fever. Consult your physician.
  • In case you stay in the Amazon rainforest, we recommend you consider a malaria vaccine (consult your doctor).
  • Symptoms of altitude sickness tend to occur within a few hours after arrival at high altitude and include headache, nausea, shortness of breath and inability to exercise. Do not plan any physically demanding activities for the first few days and drink plenty of water and eat well balanced meals.

Peru has a great geographical diversity and different climatic zones, determined by its altitude and seasons.

  • On the coast: the summer season is from November to April and reaches high temperatures, while winter is quite cool and foggy, but never cold.
  • In the Andes and the Amazon there are two seasons: the dry season (May to October) and the rainy season (November to April). During the rainy season it is not recommended to hike in the mountains because snowfalls can be quite heavy and dangerous. In the Andes the weather can change a lot during the day. We recommend you to bring a variety of clothes, warm for the cool nights, lighter for the sunny days and a rain coat.

 

A passport valid for six months is required to enter and leave Peru. Tourists must also provide evidence of return or onward travel. Travelers to Peru will receive a Peruvian Immigration card upon arrival indicating the approved length of stay (usually 90 days). Visit the Peruvian Embassy in your country for more information. We recommend you to have travel insurance for your trip in South America.

 

The Sol (S/0.00) has the official currency code PEN and replaced the Peruvian Inti in 1991. The name is a return to that of Peru's historical currency, as the previous incarnation of Sol was in use from 1863 to 1985. Although Sol in this usage is derived from the Latin solidus (English: solid), the word also means "sun" in Spanish. Thus, there is continuity with the ancient Peruvian Inti, which was named after Inti, the sun god of the Incas.
