As a traveller you will be best served knowing a little Spanish (about 80% of the population speak Spanish).
Until 1975 this was the sole official language of Perú but since then Quechua, which is main language of the highland Indians, has also been made official (about 16% of the population speak Quechua).
Around Lake Titicaca Aymara, another Indian language, is also spoken.
Many Indians speak Spanish too but if you venture into the more remote areas you will find few people who speak any Spanish at all.
In most large hotels, airline counters, and tour companies English is generally understood.
The supply is 220 volts AC, 60Hz - twin flat blade (as used in the USA) and twin round pin plugs (as used in continental Europe) are both standard here. (The only exception is Arequipa which is 220 volts AC, 50Hz).
Both flat blade and round pin plugs are accepted.
If you travel to Perú with a device that does not accept 220 Volts at 60Hz then you will need a voltage converter/transformer which can easily be bought in electrical shops in the main cities. However many electrical devices such as battery charges, shavers & laptops are multi-voltage but it is always best to check the device before plugging it in.
Perú is 5 hours behind London or six hours in British Summer Time (BST). Other time differences are listed below:
When dialling Perú from overseas dial the country code followed by the regional code minus the initial 0, followed by the number.
Country Code: 0051
Toilet doors are marked with "baño", "S.H" or "SS.HH" which is an abbreviation for Servicio Higienico.
In some of the cheaper hotels and many restaurants toilet paper is not provided so always carry a roll with you.
Toilet paper should not be thrown into the toilet but placed in the adjacent basket otherwise the toilet will soon become blocked.
This applies throughout Perú even in 5 stars hotels.
