Holiday with Kids - - Peru -

Trav­el­ling in and around Cusco means that you are go­ing to be af­fected by the al­ti­tude. Tak­ing a few days to ac­cli­ma­tise is the best thing you can do, but you should also avoid al­co­hol, stay hy­drated and drink coca tea. Talk to your doc­tor be­fore de­par­ture and ask about Di­amox, a pre­scrip­tion drug. Fi­nally, if you are feel­ing very ill, upmarket ho­tels, phar­ma­cies and some tour op­er­a­tors keep pres­surised cans of oxy­gen on hand.
