How safe is Perú?

The times of the extremist and violent movement “Sendero Luminoso”, which made a trip to Peru risky, are finally over. Today it is no longer a problem to travel in Perú. However, as a traveler, you should always be aware that, despite its popularity as a tourist destination, the country is still a newly-developed country and tourists are considered rich in the eyes of the locals. In this respect, it is not surprising if thefts occur again and again. In the dark, catch a taxi before you walk alone to your hotel.
