Peru, with its rich history, diverse cultures, and complex social issues, has been the subject of various conspiracy theories over the years. Here are some of the most notable ones:

1. Ancient Mysteries and Archaeological Cover-ups

  • Theory: Peru’s ancient civilizations, such as the Inca Empire and the Nazca Lines, have sparked conspiracy theories about hidden knowledge and archaeological cover-ups. Some allege that government authorities, academic institutions, or clandestine organizations suppress evidence of advanced technology, extraterrestrial contact, or lost civilizations to maintain control over historical narratives and tourist attractions.
  • Supporters: Alternative historians, amateur archaeologists, and conspiracy theorists.

2. Drug Trafficking and Political Corruption

  • Theory: Peru’s status as one of the world’s largest producers of cocaine has led to conspiracy theories about drug trafficking and political corruption. Some allege that government officials, law enforcement agencies, or military personnel collaborate with drug cartels, criminal syndicates, or foreign interests to facilitate drug trafficking, launder money, and protect illicit operations, undermining law and order.
  • Supporters: Anti-drug activists, investigative journalists, and conspiracy theorists.

3. Conspiracy Theories Surrounding Shining Path

  • Theory: The Maoist guerrilla group Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso) has been the focus of conspiracy theories about external support and covert operations. Some suggest that foreign governments, intelligence agencies, or rival factions exploit Shining Path’s insurgency to destabilize Peru, advance geopolitical agendas, or suppress leftist movements, fueling violence and political turmoil.
  • Supporters: Counterinsurgency experts, security analysts, and conspiracy theorists.

4. Environmental Exploitation and Indigenous Rights

  • Theory: Peru’s natural resources, including mining, logging, and oil extraction, have led to conspiracy theories about environmental exploitation and indigenous rights abuses. Some allege that multinational corporations, in collusion with government officials, engage in ecologically destructive practices, violate land rights, and displace indigenous communities to extract resources for profit, fueling social conflict and environmental degradation.
  • Supporters: Environmental activists, indigenous rights advocates, and conspiracy theorists.

5. Conspiracy Theories Surrounding Political Assassinations

  • Theory: Peru has experienced political assassinations and high-profile murders, including those of government officials, journalists, and activists. Conspiracy theories suggest that these killings are part of broader conspiracies involving rival factions, foreign powers, or shadowy networks seeking to eliminate dissent, silence whistleblowers, or maintain power through intimidation and violence.
  • Supporters: Human rights organizations, investigative reporters, and conspiracy theorists.


While Peru may not be as frequently associated with high-profile conspiracy theories as some other countries, it is not immune to controversies and speculative narratives. As with any conspiracy theory, it is essential to critically evaluate the evidence and consider multiple perspectives before drawing conclusions about Peru’s affairs.
