Electricity

Electrical outlets in Peru are like the ones in the United States and Canada, but the electrical grid runs 220 volts, which will destroy an electronic device made for the 110-volt system of North America unless it has a power adapter. Laptop computers and many other electronic goods have power adapters built into their cords, but if you have any doubts, check before you plug in. Many hotels have a 110-volt outlet in the bathroom for electric shavers and other devices. Unless it is marked otherwise, you can assume that every outlet in Peru is 220.
