LIMA PERU TRAVEL GUIDE

For many travellers arriving to Peru, the capital city of Lima may be mistaken for little more than a necessary entry point – a chaotic, sprawling metropolis best quickly departed in favour of the country’s more exotic and better-known locations.  But to leave Lima Peru without savouring its many flavours would be to miss out on one of the most interesting, culturally rich cities in South America.

Our Lima Peru Travel Guide is packed with info on all our favourite things to do in Lima Peru. We know most of you only have two to three days in the capital so we have hand-selected an exclusive selection of the best hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops and things to do in Miraflores, Barranco and Lima’s historic centre to make planning your Lima trip as easy as possible.

Check out our Lima travel information FAQ section, read our general introduction to Lima or get a glimpse of Lima’s historic past. Still stuck on where to stay or what to do? Book one of our personalised travel planning sessions and let us help you create the perfect itinerary for your dream trip!
