What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Peru?

If you’re travelling to Peru, check the latest travel advice where Covid-19 restrictions are concerned and be prepared for plans to change at the last minute.

There are no specific risks to travelers to Peru, though you should be wary of bogus taxi drivers who have been known to rob tourists and business travelers, especially during trips to and from the airports and at bus terminals. In addition, the roads a relatively unsafe and driving standards are poor, which means fatal car crashes are more common than elsewhere.

Street crime, including muggings and thefts, is a significant problem in Lima, Cusco, Arequipa and other major cities. Be vigilant in public places, never walk alone in quiet areas or at night, and always be on your guard and when withdrawing cash from cash machines.

There may be a higher risk to your safety in areas where there is organised crime and terrorism linked to the production of drugs, and demonstrations are common in the country, and are known to turn violent quite quickly, so always be vigilant.
