I'll be going to Peru in mid November. But i'm a beginner so i don't feel very safe travelling alone to south america. maybe i'll go with a tour group. but if anybody's going to Peru around that time it would definitely be cheaper than going with a tour group. anybody?

thanks very much Silvia. i'll check out your website for sure. and i like the address.
Peru is quite safe, well shit can happen anywhere, so use your common sense and you will be fine. My advice will be to be careful on the bus rides, specially on cheap buses, with your stuffs (the ones you take with you into the bus, not the ones you store). Ask for a receipt when you store your big bagpack in the bus.
My second advice, leave your passport in the safe of the hotel, also the credit cards and traveller checks you won't use. Why to take the risk when you can avoid the hassle of loose your passport and money. Always ask for a receipt when you leave stuffs in the safe of a hotel.
My final advice, try to stay in a hotel near the mainsquare of the main cities as Cusco, Puno, Arequipa. So you won't need to take taxis to the hotel when you go out at night.
A big Peruvian hug,
Thnaks so much, I'll post it on the web any other sugestion please let me know it, but after visited the web
