Departure Day Tips

Hello intrepid Civic Semester Peru students,

Your journey is right around the corner and your field staff can’t wait to meet you! Below is a reminder about your day-of travel details.

Should you need to reach our staff during travel days (both during AND outside of normal office hours), please call our office at 303-413-0822 or email: [email protected] with “TRAVEL DAY – CIVIC SEMESTER PERU” in the subject line. If you call, you can always ask to speak directly to Cara.


Please carry the following with you on the plane (not in your checked luggage). 

  • Your passport with you and leave a copy of your passport information page with a trusted person.
  • A print out of your flight itinerary along with any contact numbers for your airline.
  • The tags you get for your baggage with you in case luggage is lost and you need to make a claim.
  • A print out of the “Arrival Instructions” Yak post (found HERE). Keep these with your passport so you have the information easily accessible.
  • A print out of the “VISA AND ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS” PDF shared with you previously in Box. 
  • Emergency cash 
  • Phone numbers for your bank and/or credit card
  • All valuable items
  • Any prescription medications
  • Basic hygiene supplies for travel and in case luggage is lost.



  • On your way to Peru, reach out to the Dragons office if there are any problems with your flights – including any flight cancellations, delays, missed flights etc. This is particularly important if any delay will result in your not being on the final leg of your travels to Cuzco.
  • Wear your Dragons t-shirt for easy identification!


Safe Travels!
