I am going to Peru the first of March and am really looking forward to this trip.
I have been working with a someone in Lima who is the friend of a neighbor here in the US. I have sent some money up front for domestic flights, and he has arranged this it seems and sent the confirmation and itinerary via email.
my question is he says he needs the rest up front to pay for hotels etc. and this is how it is done in Peru...how normal is this? pay ALL up front %50 or %60 any advice would be appreciated.
