U.S. dollar (USD)
The United States dollar, denoted by USD or the symbol $, is the official currency used in the United States. Commonly referred to as the “American dollar,” the currency is divided into 100 cents (symbol ¢). A further division includes 1,000 mills to a dollar, though this division is largely unknown to the general public and only sometimes used in matters of tax levies.
Peruvian nuevo sol (PEN)
Peru's currency, the sol, denoted by the ISO code PEN, derives its name from historical use and worship of the sun (sol is Spanish for "sun"), which symbolizes power to the Peruvians. In 1991, the nuevo sol was introduced in place of the inti, which was introduced in 1985. This older currency was replaced due to high inflation. Before the inti, the old sol was used, which was replaced for the same reason.
Visitors should take into consideration that it is very difficult to change currencies other than the US dollar.
