Machu Picchu you will be remembered!
The weather is very cold
If I needed to sum up Peru in one word, I would say nature. Peru is known for its spectacular views. It is a cheap and the weather there is usually very cold. The main cities there are Cusco and Lima.
I landed in Lima first. You can find a lot of nice coffee shops and All-you-can-eat sushi. I spent there a few days and then took a flight to Cusco.
Cusco is known as a really beautiful city with culture. There are plenty of trekking you can go to from there.
You can pay in a lot of places in card, but in the markets you will only be able with card. If you need to withdraw cash, I would recommend using bcp banks since it has zero fees.
Another important thing is the sim. You will need to buy a local sim. The most common place to buy a sim is at Claro.
