Toniamonkey :

My husband and I are going with a friend to visit Peru in 2 weeks. We will be spending a couple of nights with his family (father, mother and 2 young adult brothers. I want to take them gifts. We live in SW Florida. Also any advise on Arequipa or Cuzco? Gracias!

Rich V :
"keep it simple, wine or chocolates, or take them out to a nice dinner."
Damitz III :
"take them t-shirts or hats from well known places where you live, maybe disneyland, or some florida team. Believe me, they'll like to wear american clothes in public. Just make sure they fit"
Valoya :
"It depends on what kind of family they are. Guests in my house used to bring a box of chocolates for my mom, (coz obviously she was gonna cook for them so she got a bonus) and a good wine or sangría to be drank among the adults during dinner. I don't recommend bringing clothes because you never know what other people like. So wine and chocolates should be good. If you go to Arequipa make sure to go to La Ibérica, if you love chocolate. The cuisine is excellent if you are interested in food like me. I hope you enjoy your trip. Good luck!!"

Heinz M :
"Check FTD"
maguilart :
"Try it is very well recognized in the country, although sometimes they dont have the best prices. Once you go to the website, choose Arequipa for the city in the drop down for Peru, once you are in the website, click on the right corner to see everything in english."
umoanev :
"The best in Peru is Rosatel. Go to and you then find Arequipa for delivery. You buy the flowers with your credit card, you can even write a message and select a gift to go with the flowers like a Teddy bear or a box of chocolates. Try it, they work in Peru, US, Chile, Mexico, and all through internet!!! Good luck, you seem quite a romantic guy and I congratulate you for the flowers you'll send to your bride, there are few men left who still consider flowers to be romantic.... and we chicks love flowers!!!"
Peruv :
", you can also call them to pay over the phone, they speak english."

Martha P :
"Yes. What I meant is that I am very proud to be Peruvian. I love my country and always will, even though I am gone already for a long time. I am not from Arequipa but I have been there, a beautiful place. Keep trying your best. Good luck."
