The biggest danger to travelers in Peru is becoming a victim of crime. Muggings and robberies are a significant concern in Lima and Cusco. Additionally, certain states in Peru are considered more challenging than others, therefore having a good security plan is vital. ‘Fake’ or inappropriate taxi drivers are possible, especially when arriving at Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima.
When traveling to Peru consider arranging ground transport prior to arrival, this will reduce the risk of falling victim to crimes at the airport.
