On arrival in Peru it is a good idea to exchange American dollars to Peruvian “soles”. Although most places accept both US dollars and soles it is better to have a local currency. It is also important to know that in most money exchanges do not accept even the slightest damaged or marked US dollar bills. Please consult your travel adviser about where to change money.
Many destinations in the Peruvian highlands are at 3,000 meters or higher. Most treks require medium to high-level of physical activity. Participants should be fit and in good condition to participate in treks longer than ½ day in highland locations. Dargui Tours recommends consulting your physician before trekking at high elevations and also encourages consulting a physician if you have any doubt about your physical condition prior to spending any leisure time at high elevations.
