Sunway is a distinctively impressive luxury 4 star hotel with Caldera view in the narrowest point of Santorini in Greece.
In Peru the Nuevos Soles (S/.) are used. This currency has bills of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 soles, and coins of 10, 20, and 50 cents and 1, 2 and 5 soles. Most establishments accept payment in dollars or euros. However, a better idea is to exchange them into soles at a reliable Casa de Cambio.
Check with your travel agent to find a safe exchange house that is close to your hotel, in the historic center. Avoid exchanging your money with street money changers, as you may be the victim of a scam or robbery.
In most destinations you will find automatic teller machines (ATMs) that accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express. You can withdraw dollars or soles from these ATMs, although the exchange rate may be different at the ATM.
If you are traveling with dollars or euros, do not worry, as these currencies are widely accepted in most destinations. On the other hand, if you are traveling with your local currency, try to visit an exchange house in a large city such as Lima, Arequipa or Cusco. There are more tourists there, so you will be able to change your money into soles without much trouble.
Before traveling to the Inca city of Machu Picchu, make sure you have enough money in local currency. You may find a lower exchange rate for your money in Aguas Calientes. Also, if you plan to hike the Inca Trail, be aware that it is customary to tip the staff who will help you.
