Money in Peru

Peru use Nuevo Sol (S), wich 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 generally in new soles, although 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.

When receiving local currency, always ask for small bills, as S100 bills is hard to change in small towns or for small purchases. Carry as much spare change as possible, especially in small towns.

Publics bathrooms often charge a small fee for use and getting change for paper can be darnn near imposible.

The best places to exchange money are mormally casa de cambio (foreing exchange bureaus), which are fast, have longer hours and often give slightly better rates than banks.

Many places accept US dollars. Do not accept torn money as it will likely not be aceppted by Peruvians.
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 standars plugs?

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

What should we pack?

Peru is a diverse country in natural and cultural resources so you only need a passport to enter the country and enjoy their wealth and take some precautions you might help discover.
