We all love travelling. Travelling is one of the best things to do with your partner, friends, or family. You will get to bond with them and also have fun at the same time. You need to make sure that you are prepared before you travel so that you can enjoy yourself and not worry about anything else while on a trip.

Stay at a hotel that is close to the area that you want to explore.

There are many things to do in Peru but focus on one area of the country. If this is the case, consider staying at a hotel that is close to the area that you want to explore. You can save money by staying in a hotel that is not in the center of the city and save time by staying close to what you want to visit.

Take time to relax.

Travelling is hard work, and there’s no shame in taking some time to relax. But don’t overdo it—you still want to make sure you’re seeing enough of the country, so don’t overbook yourself. If you feel you’re burning out, take a day off! Your body and mind will thank you for it. Don’t do everything or see everything; instead, just go with the flow and enjoy what comes your way.

Try out a new restaurant.

One of the best parts about travelling in a couple is that you can try out new restaurants, which are always fun.

  • If you’re feeling adventurous, try a new restaurant that’s not in your neighbourhood. Find something new to try while you’re on vacation!
  • You could also go less traditional and try a foreign cuisine like Ethiopian or Korean food. There’s nothing like getting some real culture at dinner time!
  • Or if you’re more adventurous still and want to eat somewhere, that isn’t exactly “traditional” by any means (and probably won’t be around long), consider trying some street food—it’s usually cheap and delicious!

Have an itinerary.

  • Have an itinerary. It is important to have a plan and stick to it, especially if you are travelling with other people. If you don’t have time for everything on your list, prioritize the most important spots or activities.
  • Make sure you have enough time. Don’t overbook yourselves too much; try not to spend over one day at each location unless there is something specific that takes more time like climbing Machu Picchu or visiting the Colca Canyon (which we highly recommend).
  • Make sure you have enough money: We found out that our bank cards weren’t accepted at all cash points and were only accepted in large supermarkets or shops where they took us straight into the back and gave us cash from their safe boxes after checking our passports etc…. We did not know this would happen, so we decided not even risk going into banks; instead, we went everywhere with our US$100 bills which got very tatty!

Talk about finances beforehand.

It’s also important to discuss how much you will spend, and what your credit cards will cover. Consider the currencies used in Peru, which include:

  • American dollars (USD)
  • Euros (EUR)
  • Argentine pesos (ARS)

You may also want to bring some small bills of the local currency for tipping. Be sure to note what percentage of their salary a person typically learns in tips for that country; if it is not customary for them to receive tips at all, then this should be discussed so that your guide does not feel awkward about taking yours.

Buy some souvenirs and remember your trip.

  • Buy some souvenirs. There is no better way to remember your trip than by picking up some local trinkets, whether it’s a bracelet made from Peruvian silver or a wooden carving from the Amazon rainforest. If you’re interested in giving these items as gifts back home, you can also opt for less expensive, more generic souvenirs such as shirts and hats with all kinds of “Peru” written on them.
  • Remember the people you met along the way: Some of your best memories will be of people you met on your travels, so it’s important that they get something special from their experience with you too! You can give them postcards and stamps featuring images from their country or even just write them letters when you get back home—whatever makes sense based on how close everyone was during those weeks together (and how much time passed since then).
