Refined, elegant, rich in history, and boasting one of the finest gastronomic scenes in the Americas, Peru's capital city truly deserves to be called the "City of Kings
Lima is one of South America’s best kept secrets. Once treated as a stopover by travelers on their way to the famous Machu Picchu, the capital of Peru has always been a vibrant destination in its own rightOur Favorite Tour
Meet the culinary capital of South America for several years running. This vibrant metropolitan city is perched on a cliff and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Lima is no one´s layover, it plays a bigger role than purely being a necessarily starting point to more well-known attractions in Peru like Machu Picchu, Nazca Lines, the Amazonia or northern beaches. It is the political and administrative capital of Peru, with over 10 million residences. Its skies are often covered with clouds with down fog, gaining the unfortunate nickname of the ¨gray city¨. However, this unfortunate nickname creates the perfect conditions for the perfect surfer’s paradise. Walking down the boardwalk you can find a number of point breaks suitable for different types of surfers from beginners all the way to professionals. For shortboarders try Punto Roquitas, long boarders will have a better time at Playa Waikiki and for the professionals looking for the famous big waves, then look no further than La Herradura.
Nightlife is the city is not to be missed. Pizza street in Miraflores, La Plaza in Barranco and the Historical center have an active and concentrated nightlife. With patrons starting their night at around 11pm until the early hours of the morning. After a heavy night out, there is no better hangover cure in the world than the fresh ceviche made in many Cerveceria’s around the city. Peru originated this now international dish and Lima perfected it. The fish is always fresh and you always get to choose your own level of spice. The food is to die for, they have 2 of the top 10 best restaurants in the world and is home to famous chefs like Gaston Acurio. Join a culinary tour, to sample the best dishes this nation has to offer. While you trying their food, don’t forget to stop over at the oldest China Town of the Americas and try some Chifa, a mix of Peruvian and Chinese cooking.
Larcomar Mall is worth a shopping trip, located outdoors on the cliff of Miraflores. It has stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the city. Another great shopping alternative is the bohemian neighborhood of Barranco with its eye-catching colorful houses and murals.
Lima has a rich history that deserves to be explored. It once was the Spanish capital in South America. This is clearly evident in colonial-style Plaza de Armas. Find a number of Baroque style buildings flanking the historical center. East of the plaza is Palicio de Goborio that serves as the current residence of the president of Peru with Moroccan style balconies very unusual in Peruvian architecture. Its also knows as the Presidential Palace. Other great buildings include, the Cathedral of Lima, the Archbishop´s Palace and the Municipal Palace. For pre-Columbian artifacts, make your way to the massive National Museum of Lima and the Museo Larco which is more known for its erotic collection of art pieces.
Finally, delve into the two activities that define the tourism of Lima. Firstly, paraglide over the Pacific coastline. It’s a great popular activity offered throughout the city for just over 300 soles. Lastly and certainly not least is the spectacular EL Circuito Magico Del Agua (directly translates to: The magic circuit of water). Located in Parque de La Reserva, it’s an aptly named spectacle of a water show. There are 13 fountains that illuminate with rainbow lights after sun set. This showpiece is a spectacular fountain show with lasers that follows a choreographed water routine. The water moves in unison to the music, spouting different colors of the rainbow and takes you on a virtual journey of Peruvian culture.
