    What is the best way to take money for Peru?

    The best currency to take for Peru is US dollars, and then you can change small amounts into local Peruvian Sol as you need it. I would advise taking smaller denomination dollar notes with you as most restaurants and shops will accept dollars as payment instead of Sol. There are also ATM machines in most of the cities, such as Lima, Cuzco, Puno and Arequipa. Peru is a relatively in-expensive country, meals tend to cost between $15-20 depending on what you drink (a beer costs approx $3 and soft drinks $1). Rebecca Caldicott - Peru Operations

    What is the food like in Peru?

    Peru has a great variety of food. Peru claims to be the home of the potatoes, so there are plenty of potato options available. The staple dish is chicken, but restaurants also offer a variety of beef dishes, and the more local delicacies of Alpaca and Guinea pig! Most meals are served with rice or potato. Peruvians also have a great love of Chinese and Italian food, so these are also almost always available. Local drinks include pisco and Andean beer! Rebecca Caldicott - Peru Operations

    What weather can I expect in Peru?

    Peru has a very varied climate. Between April and November is the dry season. The Amazon stays very warm throughout the year, with temperatures in the high twenties and early thirties, with humidity, and a very small chance of rain. Along the coast, the temperature will be in the mid twenties earlier in the year, getting colder July – September. In the sacred valley the temperature will be a little lower than that of the coast, and as you get closer to Machu Picchu and the cloud forest it will get colder and there will be more cloud cover. In the Andes, and around Lake Titicaca, because of the altitude it will be colder, dropping into the low teens and even possibly single figures between July and September.

    Is drinking water readily available?

    Bottled water is available everywhere in Peru. If you are doing the Inca Trail, the cooks treat the water and the leader makes sure everyone has plenty throughout the trek. Olly Leicester - Sales

    Any tips for some local food or drink to try in Lima?

    If you want to truly immerse yourself into Peruvian culture, then you need to try the local delicacy that is roast Guinea Pig or Alpaca! They are very tasty, although the Guinea Pig can look rather off putting! The traditional drink in Peru is the Pisco Sour which is a cocktail made from Pisco (a liquor distilled from grapes), with lime juice, egg whites and bitters. Its very refreshing after a long day of sightseeing! Rebecca Caldicott - Peru Operations

    Are walking poles necessary?

    If you are used to walking with poles then they will be useful, especially when tackling those famous Inca steps! However they are not essential, and you can manage quite well without them. Rebecca Caldicott - Peru Operations

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
