Political protests are causing further disruption for tourists in Peru, including to its most famous attraction, Machu Picchu.

A Foreign Office update said that train services to the landmark have been temporarily suspended.

And it warned that political protests announced for southern Peru from today can ‘easily spread to other parts of the country’.

It added: “These protests are unpredictable and can escalate quickly and include violence.

“Travellers arriving in Lima should be aware that travel to some parts of the country may not be possible.

“Protests may cause travel disruption, including with road blockades, suspension of train services and airport closures in different parts of the country.

“Train services to Machu Picchu will be temporarily suspended from 4 January.

“Travellers should recheck with their airline or tour operator and revisit travel plans ahead of any travel. For information on Lima airport operations, please visit the Lima airport website.
