OMG!
Thank you very much, I see that you really got to know how it is to live in Peru being a foreigner! :-(
I should be embarrassed, but I am getting used to this embarrassment, as ALL THESE things you mention happen so frequently, and it is better to let people know. Maybe then the average Peruvian tourism business person will have to change, because their tricks will not work any more. What a shame that they would do this because of money and not out of ETHICS.

I would be very thankful if you post this in the "Peru" and specially the "Lima" groups, as most foreign visitors read those groups, and reigning national chauvinism there hides the truth. You might be verbally attacked then, as I saw it happening some times, but your contribution to the safety of other travelers would be already there, thanks!
