Peru is a top tourist destination – there is the world renowned Machu Picchu, beautiful Inca architecture, dazzling cloud forests, snow-capped peaks, the Amazon River as well as the sprawling Atacama Desert.
However, visitors have to exercise caution here to avoid petty crime and tourist targeted scams.
Note: vast majority of trips are trouble free and there is no need to be paranoid. That said, it always pays to be aware, careful, and prepared.
