RECOMMENDATIONS

Comfortable and light clothing is the most convenient choice for traveling on Peru’s coast, while warmer clothes are best for stays in the highlands. Passengers must not wear sleeveless T-shirts, shorts, miniskirts or very tight clothes when visiting temples, religious places or official buildings. Sunblock lotion, sunglasses, a hat or cap and a mosquito repellent can be also very helpful during the trip.

Please keep in mind that check-in hour in most hotels starts at 1:00 pm. Early-arriving guests will be subject to room availability while waiting in the hotel lobby.
