❤ If you are diabetic. Please bring the sugar level testing kit. You can find them in Iquitos but very hard. Maybe you will lose the sugar level while you take the ceremony. bring some hard candies for just in case. ask us what kind of meds you can take while taking the ceremony.


❤Iquitos is a tourist town but not all people are speaking your language. so just download Google Translate on your smartphone before coming to Peru.


Tip : The First timer to Peru.

❤The Lima airport(LIM) is so small. (They are currently expanding the airport). Entering Peru is no problem but leaving LIM is very hard. Sometimes the line is so long and not moving. It will take 3 hours to just get to the security gate. just listen to what the airport agents are screaming while you are waiting in the line . normally they give the information about the airplanes that are leaving soon.


❤Coca candy is a popular treat in Andean countries, but like coca tea, it is illegal in most of the world because of its association with cocaine. Coca candy is sometimes okay to bring at your next destination but Airlines doesn't like it. I think do not bring it back to your country. It is the safe way. You can have them in Peru. but if you have a plan to have a drug test in your country after the trip. please stay away from the coca products.
