Getting around

Peru is enormous, so while it's possible to explore all regions with full freedom of a rental car, it will require lots of unnecessary driving. We recommend a combination of air travel between major hubs and renting a car locally when needed. Most travelers don't drive at all and rely on a combination of guided tours and public transport.

Language

Most coastal regions speak Spanish while Quechua is dominating the mountain regions. You won't have issues speaking English in most travel settings, but knowing a little Spanish will make a huge difference.

Safety

Peru is generally a safe travel destination. Petty crime is common in crowded areas due to high poverty in the country, so take basic precautions. Solo female travelers should feel generally confident but should avoid isolated areas.
