The unrest in Peru is still active. The recent state unrest that has affected the whole Peru has caused the suspension of tourist activities. Namely, tourists who wanted to visit this South American country will have to postpone their trip, since the unrest is still going on. The government advises all those who wish to visit Peru to think about their decision, as they are concerned about their safety.
The state of Peru has released new information related to the civil unrest that began last December. Unrest is still present, the streets are full of hooligans and the government can’t guarantee the safety of its citizens, let alone tourists who voluntarily want to visit Peru during this period. This type of trouble is classified by the American Ministry as Level 3 of threat, according to which tourists aren’t advised to come to countries where unrest and trouble reign.
Riots are happening all over the country, but the biggest riots are in the southern part of Peru. However, there are certain places that can be visited at this time, if someone has already scheduled their trip for this period. The tourist attractions of this state located in the north and east are open for visitors. Although in the previous period the tour of the ancient city of Machu Picchu was prohibited for tourists and visitors, from February 15, it will be allowed again. Tourists will be able to enjoy the beautiful remains of this city, as one of the seven wonders of the world, and admire the view when you climb up. This decision was made by the Ministry of Culture, so that the cultural and tourist industry wouldn’t suffer again, as they had already suffered from the restrictions during the pandemic.
The Government of Peru, together with the Ministry of Security and the police, has created a special tourist protection network, through which visitors and tourists are shown safe roads and corridors to nearby airports, safe routes to tourist attractions and other information that tourists need in order to feel safe during these unrest. This application is currently available on the AppStore on all mobile devices, so everyone can download it on their phones and visit Peru.
