Safety and Precautions

Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a hat, sunscreen, a Spanish dictionary, some small change, and a good map of town. Be street-smart in the Arequipa market area—access your cash discreetly and keep your valuables close. At 2,300 meters (7,500 feet), Arequipa is quite high. If you're coming directly from Lima or from the coast, carve out a day or two for acclimatization.
