Leopardfish  Country Guide



Peru is a hybrid destination for the western expatriate offering a blend of the modern and cosmopolitan with an exotic culture and wild environment. Indeed, Peru consists of a rich mixture of ethnicities and is a colorful melting pot of heritages, traditions and cuisines. Lima, Peru’s large metropolitan capital, provides the urbane loving expat just about anything they could ever want or need. The city is full of magnificent Spanish architecture, trendy and quirky cafes and clubs, fine restaurants, shopping malls, cinemas and impressive cultural institutions offering a wide array of fine arts to the local and expat communities. Of course, Peru is more famous for its stunning landscape including the untamed Amazon rainforest, the Majestic Andean highlands and the miles and miles of coastal beaches and desert. Unfortunately, however, Peru is not as safe as most expat’s home countries. According to, there’s more street crime, physical assaults and robberies. Language can also be a challenge for English-speaking visitors given that most Peruvians are unable to communicate in English. This can make navigating, retail shopping, doing personal business and dealing with the government more complicated from time to time.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Peru shouldn’t be too bad on an expat’s budget. Of course, the country is diverse and expenses vary from region to region, from city to city and from urban to town. Still, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Peru is generally about at the international average. This becomes apparent when one purchases any number of goods and services. Transit, groceries, alcohol, restaurant meals, Internet plans and retail entertainment and recreation tend to less expensive while housing accommodations, furniture and appliances tend to be more pricey. On the other hand, healthcare, clothing and personal care items are all rather reasonable. Indeed, assuming the western expatriate teacher is able to negotiation a fair remuneration from his or her international school employer, he or she should be able to live very comfortably in Peru.
