Peru has great tourism infrastructure, which means lots of options for eating, drinking and shopping.

Though every city in Peru is unique and the options legion, here are a selection in Cusco and Lima, as well as recommendations for how to find good places and what to look for.


Do not buy gold in Peru. Most gold mining is illegal and doesn’t follow any environmental regulations or respect Indigenous land ownership. Most of the gold for sale in Peru was dredged from the rainforest, destroying water quality and wildlife habitat. Illegal miners destroy vast swaths of the Peruvian Amazon and poison waterways with mercury.
