Preparation for el niño

Rained in Piura again today, wow. I see the signs in Lima about being prepared for el niño (clean the drains and check electricity) and the coastal protection work they have been doing there. In Piura, normally el cole ends at the end of December. This year school end is end of November because of t...

Re: Crime in Peru

The article states that there is crime in Peru (dah, yeah) and that it is worse in the three largest cities in Peru (dah, yeah). It also states crime in other places is very much lower ie Loreto is ½. Some smaller places I know never have had any serious crime. Meanwhile in the USA: “The fact is, th...

Re: Saving your guests 10% hotel tax

Interesting. Thanks! In the north here it is not so much a SOP to do this, at least I am referring to the more modest hotels with few foreign guests. Can I ask, can you refer me to a link where I can print out a page to show to the hotel should there be a discussion?

Saving your guests 10% hotel tax

Do I have this right? When we have foreign guests wanting us to tour them around the sites :) when they stay at a hotel and have a Tarjeta Andina showing they are here less than 60 days the hotel can reduce the charge by 10% because the hotel doesn't have to collect and submit this tax?

Your assumption is not correct, not so sure gringos are attractive targets in Trujillo. Crooks are generally lazy cowards. They want their booty easy. A lone female, or one pulling a kid is more vulnerable, easier prey. But yes, a larger gringo might make them think twice. There are not snatching lo...
