Lima

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Lima, Peru’s capital, is a mix of colonial charm and modern entertainment. Its downtown historical center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you’ll be surrounded by colonial buildings with bright colors and carved wooden balconies. For a test of courage, visit the iconic Peruvian catacombs beneath Saint Francis Monastery, which houses the preserved remains of over 25,000 people. 

World-class surfing spots and paragliding excursions can be found in Lima’s vibrant districts. Miraflores has plenty high-end hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, and nightclubs, many of which overlook the Pacific Ocean. No trip to Lima is complete without savoring its regional specialties – flavoursome ceviche washed down with a pisco sour.
