Why wait to visit the Amazon when the world’s greatest rainforest is ready to welcome you now?
Jungle Experiences offers its tips on how to visit Peru in general — and the Peruvian Amazon in particular — while the pandemic is still ongoing.
Before traveling, make sure you choose a safe destination. Consider the World Health Organization’s recommendations as well as the ones from the Health Ministry in Peru (MINSA). It’s crucial that you keep yourself well informed so that your trip is not only pleasant but also safe.
Going to a natural destination like the Peruvian Amazon is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with ourselves, discovering new destinations and cultures with interesting traditions. It’s also worth mentioning that Covid infection risks are much lower in wilderness areas and wide open spaces.
Once you have chosen your destination, consider the means of transportation. If you’re traveling by air, take into account the requirements for a safe journey. At the airport and on the airplane, wear mask as well as a face shield or safety glasses. Meanwhile, electronic boarding passes
Streamline the check-in, boarding and immigration process and reduce contact with airport and airline staff (thus reducing the risk of infection).
If you’re thinking about coming to Peru, take note on the following country requirements:
- Have a negative real-time RT-PCR (-) test result within less than 72 hours from the moment it was issued, a negative antigen test (-) or a medical certificate of epidemiological discharge, before boarding the airplane.
- In the case of children (under 12 years old), a medical certificate of good health is required.
- Present an Electronic Health Sworn Statement and a commitment to carry out the traveler’s isolation or quarantine, if needed.
- As of March 1st, 2021, all passengers arriving in Peru, irrespective of nationality, have to quarantine for 14 days. When the quarantine is to be completed outside Lima, you must arrive there within 24 hours after arrival in Peru.
Please note that as of February 14th, 2021, commercial airlines are operating to and from Peru up to 8 hours flying time away.
