    *When arriving in cities in the Andes, make sure you rest and let the body adjust to the altitude. Eating light meals, drinking plenty of fluids and avoiding alcohol helps.
    *To check for forged bills Peru, find the “reddish” coloured denomination at the end of the bill and tilt it. If it’s authentic, the numbers will turn black.
    *For the least wait and best rate when changing foreign currency, “Casa de Cambios” or small exchange offices found in main towns in Peru are a good option.
    *Learn some Spanish words and phrases before you come to Peru. “Hola” (Hello) and “Gracias” (Thank you) are essential, while learning numbers will help when bartering in the markets.
    *“Ceviche”, a favourite local dish of raw fish marinated in citrus juice, is best enjoyed on the coast, washed down with a cold “cerveza” (beer).
    *Always take a hotel card with you when going off to explore so you can get a cab or ask for directions if you get lost!
    *The best time to visit the Andes is in the months of June-August when the rainfall is minimal, however bring warm clothes!
