For travellers going to Peru, I imagine from what I've seen there that being gluten-intolerant (or even vegetarian) may be quite difficult.

Are there any local foods and meals readily available that are gluten-free? Or a supplier for gluten-free products in most major cities (Lima, Arequipa, Cuzco etc)?

Potatoes are gluten-free and Peru is known to be the origin land of potatoes. It is still a basic element of Peruvian food.
