How safe would it be for me to visit Lima, Peru this Sept with my husband and two small children?
I will be going with my Step-grandmother who has family that live in the more poverished area of peru and speaks the language herslf. My children and I are caucasion however and very fair. I have heard stories of kidnapping and holding American's for ransom and I was just curious if this is valid? Has anyone been here recently or know about the safety of traveling here? Thanks for anyone's input.
