If you visit the jungle and buy one of those souvenir cerbatanas through which indians blow little arrows, PACK IT AND CHECK IT IN when you take the plane. They are considered weapons and won't be allowed in cabin.
I didn't know and had to leave it in the security check at Lima airport (though they said nothing in the Iquitos-Lima flight!).
