Can I find international departures in Cusco?

So, Cusco has the only other airport with international al service to La Paz, Bolivia.

Do I need a Visa to enter Peru?

With a few exceptions (notably some Asian, African and Communist countries), Visa are not required for travelers entering Peru.

Likewise,  Tourists are permitted a 30 to 90-day stay, which is stamped into their passports and onto a tourist card called Tarjeta Andina de Migracion “TAM”(Andean Immigration card), that you must return upon leaving the country.

Where I can get a new TAM during machu picchu and cusco city peru?

Be careful not to lose your tourist card, or you will have to queue at the immigration office (Oficina de Migraciones), also simply known as “Migraciones” to get a replacement card. It is a good idea to carry your passport and TAM in your pocket at all times especially when traveling in remote areas, for example, it is required by law on the Inca Trail.

For security get a photocopy of both documents and keep them in a separate place form the originals.

Money in Peru

Peru uses de Nuevo Sol (S), which has traded at S2.50 to S3.50 per US dollar (US$) for several years although you should keep an eye on current events. Prices in this book are in Nuevos Soles, though some are listed in US dollars.

Carrying cash, an ATM card, or traveler´s checks, as well as a credit card that can be used for cash advances in case of emergency, is advisable.

Will I need cash during the puma city tour?

When receiving local currency, always ask for small bills (Billetes Pequeños), as S100 bills are hard to change in small towns or for small purchases. That is to say, Carry as much spare change as possible, especially in the small cities.

The best places to exchange money are usually foreign exchange bureaus (Casa de Cambio), which are fast, have longer hours, and often give slightly better rates than banks.

Sometimes, any places accept US dollars. Do not accept torn money as it will likely not be accepted by Peruvians. Most importantly, It is best not to change money on the street as counterfeits are a problem.

Do you know what voltage the sockets have (110 or 220)?

What are the standard plugs – machu picchu and cusco city peru?

Certainly, Electrical current is 220V, 60HZ AC, Standard outlets accept round prongs, but many places will have dual-voltage outlets which take flat prongs. Even so, you may need an adapter with a built-in surge protector.

What should we pack?

Above all, Peru is a diverse country in natural and cultural resources. So, you only need a passport to enter the country and take some precautions that will help you to enjoy the wealth of this beautiful land.

Phone Calls

Public payphones operated by Telefonica-Peru (www.telefonica.com.pe) or Claro-Perú (www.claro.com.pe)  are available on the street even in small towns. Most payphones work with phone cards which can be purchased at supermarkets and groceries. Often internet cafes have private phone booths with ¨net-to-phone¨ and ¨net-to-net¨ capabilities (such as skype), where you can talk for pennies or even for free.

How to do international callings?

So, when calling Peru from abroad, dial the international access code for the country you are in, then Peru¨s country code (51), then, the area code without the 0, and finally, the local number.

Certainly, Making international calls from Peru, dial the international access code (00). Then, the country code of where you are calling to, then the area code, and finally the local phone number.

In Peru, any telephone number beginning with a 9 is a cell-phone number. Numbers beginning with 0800 are often toll-free only when dialed from private phones, not from public payphones.

What is the time difference between the United States and Peru?

Certainly, Peru is five hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). It is the same as Eastern Standard Time (EST) in North America.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is not used in Peru, so add an hour to all of these times between the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October.

Weather

What is the weather in Cusco – machu picchu and cusco city peru?

Certainly, Peru has three main climatic zones: the tropical Amazon jungle to the east, the arid coastal desert to the west, and the Andean mountains and highlands in between.

Therefore, in the Andes, which have altitudes over 3500m. Average daily temperatures are around 10°C (50°F), and overnight temperatures can dip well below freezing. So, travelers flying straight to Cuzco (3250m), or their hight altitude cities, should allow several days to acclimatize since altitude sickness or soroche can be a problem.

As a result, April to November is the dry season in the mountain and Andean Plateau (altiplano). The wettest months are from December to March. It rains al the time in the hot and humid rainforest, but the driest months there are from April to November.
