In Peru exist three different natural regions and the follow are :

In the coast : Women wear long skirts and blouses. Men usually wear pants, “ponchos”, t-shirt and big hat.

In the mountain : Women wear “polleras” at once and sandals made of rubber or “yanquis”. Women who wear more “polleras” (skirts of colors and with aplication of emblem made of gold) means that they are more important than another woman. Men wear wool pants, sandals, “poncho” and big hat.

In the jungle : Women wear very short skirts and top, t-shirts. Men wear “tapa rabo” (a small piece of cloth that covers mens genitals) and t-shirts or they wear in this way because of the hot weather that is in the jungle.
