Trip Notes

A Special Note On Machu Picchu
Peruvian authorities have enacted new regulations surrounding all Machu Picchu visits.
• Entry tickets are valid for one entry only, meaning you cannot leave the site and re-enter.
• After entry, our group will be directed to one of three “circuits” around the site. We will not have the ability to backpedal, switch circuits or explore Machu Picchu after completing the circuit. We must immediately leave the site after completing the circuit.
• We will have a set time slot for our tour, either 6am-12pm or 12pm-4:30pm, and this slot will be chosen in advance by our operations team.
• We will spend additional time exploring the famous Sun Gate and Inka Bridge which will be less regulated.

Visas
A visa is not typically required for American, Australian, British and Canadian citizens travelling to Peru for fewer than 90 days. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the responsibility of the traveller.

Culture Shock
Peru is a developing country with infrastructure, values, customs and standards that may differ from what you’re accustomed to. Expect poor road conditions, along with unanticipated inconveniences such as restaurants and tourist sites being closed from time-to-time. Please note our transportation may be altered, and/or our itinerary changed, due to such circumstances beyond our control.

Local LGBT Scene
Many people frequently mistake the Inca national flag for a rainbow Pride flag...if only that were the case. Peru is predominantly Catholic, quite conservative, and hasn’t progressed far in terms of LGBT rights. That said, Lima does have a large LGBT community, some popular lesbians hangouts, and a friendly restaurant and art scene.

Weather
Expect the weather in Lima to be fairly consistent, with daytime highs around 18C/65F, and evening lows around 15C/58F. April through October are the coolest and driest months in the Andes Mountains (Cusco, Sacred Valley, Inca Trail), where the average daily high is around 20C/68F, with evening lows around 4C/40F.

Required Vaccinations
Based on entry requirements, there are no vaccinations needed for Peru. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, you should consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

Electricity
You will need an international travel plug/adapter for type A/B/C sockets.

Connectivity
Wi-Fi will be available at no cost at our hotels in Lima, Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Unless you have a local SIM card, you won’t have a data connection during our hike on the Inca Trail.

Important Machu Picchu Info
For safety reasons, our Machu Picchu entrance tickets do not include the fee to climb/hike to the top of Huayna Picchu (the mountain in the background of Machu Picchu photos). You will, however, have access to the entire site along with a 2-hour guided tour.

A Special Note On Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness and oxygen deprivation may be felt while travelling to high altitudes. Symptoms include shortness of breath, headaches, general lethargy and a reduced appetite. It is important that you drink plenty of water, and don’t attempt too much in a day.

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on our tour. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $50,000.

Your guide
Our adventure is led by a lesbian (or lesbian-welcoming, female) guide. Whenever possible, we hire destination locals. And we can also connect you with the right people if you’d like to delve deeper into the local culture. If you’re pleased with your guide, we recommend a tip of US $5-10 per person, per day…they’ll certainly appreciate it!

Fellow adventurers
Out adventures are a great way to meet women from around the world and all walks of life. Bear in mind that everybody’s there for a good time, so mutual respect will go a long way. Please be on time for any meet ups, empathetic to the needs of others, and ready to roll with whatever the adventure brings.

Flying Solo
If you’ve never travelled on your own, it’s an amazing way to get to know yourself while making new friends along the way. We can arrange for you to share a room with people in your age range at no charge, or you can pay a supplement for your own room. If there’s an odd number of solos, we’ll rotate a single room on a random basis.

Optional activities
Every Out Adventure offers optional excursions that are not included in price of this trip. Please see the daily itinerary in your final pre-trip packet to learn what’s available.

Meals
To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. Although we typically dine together so that everybody can get a taste of everything, feel free to explore on your own…your guide will always have some restaurant recommendations. While in the Amazon Jungle, all meals will be included. You will have a selection of meat, fresh fruit, and vegetables, with hot meals throughout.

Money
The local currency is the Peruvian Nuevo Sol. Credit cards are accepted at hotels and upscale restaurants, but not for gratuities. We recommend carrying approximately $400 USD to be used only in the case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold.

Tipping
Gratuities for local day/city guides, drivers, hotel porters and food at included meals are all covered in the trip price. However, a tip to your Group Leader, housekeeping, and gratuities for optional meals and drinks at included dinners are not.
Please note: Credit cards are accepted at hotels and upscale restaurants, but we strongly recommend cash for gratuities.

What to bring
Most Out Adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get heavier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb. If you bring along a steam trunk, chances are you’ll be leaving it behind on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you pick up along the way.

Special Note on Luggage
We’ll provide a duffel bag that can be used for the Amazon Extension for 2 nights/3 days along with our journey to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu for 2 nights/3 days. You get to keep this bag after the tour. Your main luggage will be securely stored during these two excursions.
