Lima

Lima

Lima–When fog bundles its colonial facades and high rises, Lima’s enchantments come across as all too subtle. After Cairo, this sprawling metropolis is the second-driest world capital, rising above a long coastline of crumbling cliffs. To enjoy it, climb on the wave of chaos that spans from high-rise condos built alongside pre-Columbian temples, and fast Pacific breakers rolling toward noisy traffic snarls.
However, Lima is also sophisticated, with civilization that dates back millennia. Stately museums display sublime pottery; galleries debut edgy art; solemn religious processions recall the 18th century and crowded nightclubs dispense tropical beats. No visitor can miss the capital’s culinary genius, part of a gastronomic revolution more than 400 years in the making.
This is Lima. Shrouded in history, gloriously messy and full of aesthetic delights. Don’t even think of missing it.

Many travellers to Lima are merely on their way to other places in Peru, and just a few spend more than a couple of days in the capital. But because nearly all transport (flights) goes through Lima, most travellers take advantage of layovers to see what distinguishes the city: its colonial old quarter, once the finest in the Americas, and several of the finest museums in Peru like the Larco Museum, all of which serve as magnificent introductions to Peruvian history and culture.

A full day stroll in Lima Centro should suffice; depending on your interests, we organize day tours to the hidden sites of the capital or the lesser tourist sites that way to see the real part of the capital escorted by a Peru Summit Adventures private local guide. You could also spend several days traipsing through Lima’s many museum collections, many of which are scattered in otherwise unremarkable neighborhoods. For a laid-back stroll and great hung out with friends at night head to the artsy coastal neighborhood, Barranco, home to Lima’s best nightlife and the site of a handful of excellent small museums. It will likely greatly improve your impressions of the capital.

Highlights | Lima

Cuisine

Considered the Gastronomic Capital of the Americas, in Lima, everything centers on food. And that is more than apparent in its excellent restaurants, bars, and taverns, where thousands of years of flavors are fused using ingredients from the coast, highlands, and rainforest. If you are a foodie traveller, then this will be an experience you’ll want to repeat again and again.

While in Lima, it would be impossible not to try ceviche or a good Pisco sour, eat chifa (type of Chinese food), or savor the delicious kebabs known as “anticuchos”, Lima apart of the capital of Peru is the gastronomic capital of the Americas.
