Peru is pretty safe

I’ve lived in Peru for 3 years, I’m an American citizen. In Lima things are pretty cool. However I’ve been robbed twice, once at gunpoint. Most of the time here though robberies are just simple snatch and dash affairs with no physical harm.

The jungle on the other hand is another monster altogether. If mother nature doesn’t murder you in one of a thousand ways, you’ve got narcotraffickers riding rivers at night.

But in the metropolis of Lima or other major cities chances are nothing will happen to you. Terrorism was once a major problem but has all but vanished. Peru is considerably safer than Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, and even much of Brazil.
