The Peru guide

Latest articles

Before travelling to Peru, whether for a short visit as a tourist or a long-term relocation, it’s best to find out about entry conditions and formalities. Nationals of some countries may require a visa to make a short stay in the country, while others do not and can enter as a tourist without a formal visa. In general, the conditions vary from one country to another and according to the duration of stay, so you should check with the Peruvian diplomatic representatives in your home country before travelling.

If you’re considering a move to Peru, why not make the most of this time by discovering the country and learning more about its history, culture, and geography?

If you’re considering a move to Lima, you’re probably wondering what you’ll do in your spare time. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the range of activities and entertainment options in the Peruvian capital.

In Peru, there are more than 30 million mobile phone in use and 10 million users connected to the internet. The telecommunication network is continuously developing. While coverage is most reliable in urban areas, connectivity is slowly expanding to rural locations.

If you are planning to relocate to Peru, it’s important to learn a bit about the local lifestyle so that you know what to expect on arrival, and you’re able to adapt and assimilate more easily.

A Caribbean chica from the spice isle Grenada, I lived in the UK for 12 years, and now (as of October 2015) call Lima, Peru home. Pelican Tales is about life in Lima, discovering the food, culture, language, history and more, and about adventures travelling through South America while I'm here.
