Did you know that you have to be careful when buying Pisco or Maca in Peru?
And if you want to take Peruvian coca leaves with you back home, we recommend you don’t take the leaves, but the one in tea bags!
On the other hand, don’t be afraid when you hear vendors recommending you a ‘baby alpaca’ sweater or scarf. No little alpaca had to die for your souvenirs! “Baby Alpaca” means that the wool is the first cut of an alpaca. This wool is softer and more expensive than the later cuts. But be careful when buying at the tourist markets! It is not easy to recognize this high-quality alpaca wool, and it’s easy to get fooled by the experienced Peruvian vendors.
