For the last two months I have been experimenting with ways to save Karikuy travelers cash. The result has been the creation of the Karikuy Low Price for Merchandise Program. This new program allows the traveler to save an average of $250 off their trip to Peru. So how does the system work? Below I will summarize the program, you can read more about the Low Price for Merchandise program on the main Karikuy website; www.karikuy.org/savecash
The Low Price for Merchandise program has been running privately since January of 2009, and is now available to all Karikuy customers as an optional service. This program is possible due to the high demand of electronics in Peru and their high cost of importation. Customs allows you to import several personal electronics into Peru for example; 1 personal laptop, 1 personal video camera, 1 personal photo camera etc. By using this opportunity you can save big on your vacation in Peru. We at Karikuy simply resell the computer at normal prices through our merchant partners and sites such as Kotear.pe and MercadoLibre.com. Our profits go towards running the organization and advancing our projects.
