Comfortable and light clothes are the most convenient choice for traveling on Perus coast, while warmer clothes are best for stays in the highlands. Passengers must not wear sleeveless T-shirts, shorts, miniskirts or very tight clothes when visiting temples, religious places or official buildings. Sunblock lotion, sun glasses, a hat or cap and a mosquito repellent can be also very helpful during the trip.
Please have in mind that check-in hour in most hotels starts at 13:00 hrs. Early-arriving guests will be subject to room availability, while waiting in the hotel lobby.
