I 've got a question for the people who have travelled both countries:
what's, according to your personal experience the safest country to travel to?

I am a male and would be travelling alone. No experience with south-america yet.

Would travel in june.

Thanks in advance.

I felt safer in Ecuador. But Peru was totally OK as well.

Then again, personal experience is like statistics: it can't predict what another individual would experience. Much depends on where actually you would be going, what type of traveller you are, whether you're street smart, etc.

Well, i would be going to an ayahuasca retreat. (can i say that here? ;) )

Not sure what kind of traveller i am, amateur in a good way i guess.

Retreat or rehab... lol I guess it's more traditional in Peru... a couple of friends went to Iquitos to do something similar, 10 days of madness! Good luck!
