Peru Security Overview
Crime poses a reasonable threat to foreign travelers and heavily populated areas are most vulnerable, especially the known tourist hotspots. Opportunistic criminals will target individuals who have reduced levels of situational awareness, and/or show signs of wealth. Airport routes into major cities are vulnerable, including Lima. Criminals are known to operate along these routes due to the high flow of tourist movements. The targeting of foreign travelers outside their hotels is also becoming a rising concern.
