In Peru, it is thought polite to greet all people that you come into contact with, including shop assistants and bar staff, however long or short your acquaintance might… be. Learning some simple Spanish phrases will enable you to do this, as it is considered good manners to greet someone with a salutation such as "buenos dias" (good day). Smiling is also important in making a good first impression. Don't be surprised if you are addressed as "gringo/gringa" (meaning foreigner) or "mister" - these are not derogatory terms in Peru and shouldn't be taken as such. Peruvians tend to be formal and conservative, and this is especially so around the Andes region. The indigenous Amerindians are particularly reserved in their demeanour, and can often come across as shy or aloof. Eye contact with visitors to the community will often be minimal. It is therefore bad etiquette to stare or make continual eye contact. You should respect the modesty and reserved nature of many Amerindian communities, so adhering to similar behaviour and modest dress codes would be seen as a sign of respect. Outlandish, forthright and boisterous conduct within such groups would be considered quite offensive and completely out of place. Handshaking between men and women is the most common form of meeting and greeting in Peru. Women may give and receive a kiss on the right cheek, however this is a slightly less formal sort of greeting and should only be initiated by your Peruvian counterpart. During introductions you should expect to be asked seemingly personal questions regarding your relationship status, marriage and family. You might even be asked about your job and subsequent financial status. Although these questions might be construed as invasive and even nosey, you should understand that in Peru it is considered polite to show an interest in such matters. However, try to answer such personal questions with a degree of modesty, as boastful and ostentatious behaviour - particularly where financial status is concerned - is frowned upon and considered quite vulgar.
The formal way is to shake hands. The Dutch tend to give a firm handshake. Two women, or a man and a woman, who know each other may kiss each other three times on the cheeks. …Usually one begins on the other's right cheek, then left cheek, and then right cheek again.
