How dangerous are Lima and other cities in Peru?

Travel Tips and Safety Advice – Part 2


Today the general situation in Lima and other cities in Peru shouldn't be considered worse than in any metropolis around the globe where rich and poor live closely together.

As anywhere in the world extra caution should be taken at crowed places such as busses, bus stations, airports, markets, sights, etc. and in areas where mainly rich locals and foreigners spend their time – these are of course popular with crooks as well as they provide profitable possibilities.

In addition, it is surely advisable to move around more consciously, to listen to your gut feeling more often and have your eyes and ears open. In the following articles of our new series "Travel Tips and Safety Advice for Peru" we put together useful tips and advice relating to every conceivable aspect of your safety and security while traveling in Peru.

Our tips and recommendation don’t aim at scaring visitors, but rather at enabling foreigners to recognize potentially dangerous situations, and either avoid these beforehand or handle them the best way possible. These of course can’t guarantee complete security and integrity, but can raise awareness for the local situation.
