Some travelers to Cusco experience altitude sickness (11,000 feet) and Lake Titicaca (13,000 feet). To avoid symptoms, stay hydrated and avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol the first day you arrive. Read our blog article on How to Avoid Altitude Sickness in Cusco.

Drink only bottled water and make sure that the water served in restaurants comes from a bottle (the server will usually open it in front of you). When ordering a drink, ask for it "sin hielo," without ice.

The government of Brazil currently requires yellow fever vaccinations for anyone who has traveled to Peru. We recommend that if you are heading for the Amazon on our Peruvian Rainforest Tours that you get prophylactic Malaria medication. Consult your doctor or the World Health Association website about vaccinations and other travel-related medical recommendations. Please note that our travel consultants cannot give medical advice.
