Traveling tips - Peru

I've been dating this Peruvian girl who is here on a visa but she has to go back to Peru in 3 weeks. We've discussed it and I can stay with her in Peru for a week or two if I buy the plane ticket.

I know Peru is a shithole, but I have never had the opportunity to travel internationally. It seems like a great opportunity to do so with minimal expenses. Do yall have any advice or recommendations about Peru? Am I making a big mistake?

    I recomend you only going with carry on, because if they plant you drugs in your suitcase you could stay lots of years in hell prisons.

    If you are anglo be carefull in the less tourist locations.

    If you're going to lima then it will be just as 3rd world as the US (actually a lot less 3rd world probably), which is where I assume you're from. Peru is quite big for tourism, they havd lots of cool ruins in the south of the country, and the coastal area is good for surfing.

      Where does she live? And I mean province, district and city.
      As doesn't say, a lot of people are poor people that live in poor, not tourists neighborhoods that are pretty dangerous. You don't get to see too many homeless people than in US though, but still I wouldn't walk alone in places without stores with open doors.

      Just don't carry anything you didn't buy, make your own suitcase and you'll be fine.

        If the girl is in the US legally on vacation or studying, I think it's safe to say that she is not poor. OP should be fine.

        Don't know much about Peru, but a friend visited a few years ago and enjoyed it. Must be even better with a cute local to guide you. Just do it, OP. This is unironically a once in a lifetime opportunity

          Most likely yea. But, it's not wrong to ask. People do travel for pleasure to the US, or study there and they do value it more than living in a better neighborhood. So you will find wealthy people who does travel legally, get visas and still lives in not so great places. You never know who is standing next to you.

          From what travelers have told me, Peru has far better food and a more conservative culture than Colombia, with much more indigenous influence. If you are white, you will stand out much more in a predominantly native country versus a mestizo / predominantly European country. Peru has very unique climates and plenty of country to explore. Winter can get cold there. Not sure what the political situation is at the moment...another flareup in violence may result in you being stranded in-country around a lot of angry Peruvians.

          Just avoid Puno.

          Peru is really frickin nice man. Your only mistake is not going long enough, it's extremely cheap there. Advice and recommendations: avoid the coast, visit Huaraz & Caraz & Laguna Paron, Go to the north, try the cocaine. I never have and never will do coke in the USA but i was snorting lines and climbing mountains in Peru. Also try the energy drinks with coca they are delicious

          >avoid the coast
          >Go to the north
          I would go to the north coast in late spring, early summer though. You can spend a day or two on each of the biggest cites there (Trujillo, Chiclayo and maybe Piura). Or probably more if you like beaches.
          Also, cocaine not legal. Coca leafs and energy drinks legal. Try the legal stuff unless you're getting a medical exam when you return.

            Outside of St louis, Trujillo & Chiclayo are the biggest shitholes I've ever been to. Place looks like it was nuked. Dead dogs on the side of the road and extreme poverty there not like the comfy mountain poverty where people are happier than the average westoid. Chan Chan is very very cool though

          Dude. They don't have to plant anything in the airport to catch. They fricking know there's plenty of people trying to carry illegal stuff for their family and a lot of it doesn't get caught.
          It's not like in Europe where they have to prove their job is not a money pit.

          I get your point. And to be honest most of big cities in Perú are like that. Including Cusco.
          But Chan Chan is worth a visit.

    In Lima, Miraflores and Barranco neighbourhoods are cleaner than Paris and safer than New York.

    Peruvian are generally pretty chill if you're polite with them.

    Again, cities are the problem, on the country side if you speak spanish, there are no real threats.

    Ayahuasca shit in Ucayali/Tarapoto is a life-threatening scam for naive urbanites that turns you insane.

      Only in those regions?

      Are you Canadian?

      Only in those regions?

      Probably the only region that is the real thing is Iquitos. And anyways, it's pretty difficult to find.

      i was thinking about doing like a month in cusco. im a big outdoors guy so id never get tired of being out in the mountains like that. is cusco chill? is it a good place to live out of or is it tourist trap hell?

      It's both.
      The historical district of Cusco is full of churches and museums but also "traditional" restaurants and other souvenir stores.
      But if you can make a friend in the sector, they'll can show you stuff that the locals actually do and buy.
      First of all, local people, as the place, attract a lot of deluded guys that look at Cusco as a sacred place fine to retire or escape the city (most of them in Urubamba Valley).
      Urubamba Valley is cool but also a tourist trap. At least close to the road and the rail tracks.
      Machu Picchu Town is a tourist trap. Except for the thermal waters.
      Both places, if you just look for the ruins and mountains are pretty, and remember, you're a tourist, so do the stuff.

      There is unrest in the country since the elected leftist president was removed in a coup by the right when he tried to disband the parliament. At some point the road to Macu Pichu was closed and tourist got stranded.
      idk about now but you should research that before you go.

      el bummero. when was this? im so out of the loop. sometimes i think i should start paying attention to the news again but, eh.

      As I said, stay away from Puno. Other places are mostly normal aside from the occasional peaceful protest mostly in the south. And no road blocks.
      Also, you should book your ticket to Machu Picchu in advance. It's not a scam as in other places, as it can get pretty crowded for It's own good.

    T. moronic Canadian who went to Peru in Feb during mass protests and road closures.

    We got stuck in Lima because Peruvians were chimping out, had to cancel Cusco so make sure the political climate is alright.

    Basically, Lima is cool. Stinky but cool. The sunsets are the best I’ve ever seen, the cliffs are cool, Miraflores and the surrounding area is really nice since its for rich people, food is great and I love pisco sours now. We walked all around Lima at night with no problems, just always check your surroundings and look alert.

    THAT BEING SAID -

    Peruvians are not mentally well right now. Frankly, they’re kinda moronic. I got pressed by some midget because I was hungover and scowled at him saying I had no money. Pushed me up to the wall and said he’d break my legs lmao. Possibly CIA because he sounded American but looked like a homeless Hispanic. I was super hungover so I just said sorry and walked away. Don’t be super hungover. You need to be alert at all times. Many mentally ill homeless will harass you if you’re white, and not many speak english so prepare to know some Spanish.

    Overall pretty cheap, but I really disliked Peruvians. I felt more safe in Mexico, Argentina and Chile. Honestly I feel like somethings being put in the water there, theres just something about Lima at least that gives me a weird vibe.
