Lima is a fascinating city and a treasure chest of history.
Gaze at ancient Incan archaeological sites or admire the impressive cathedrals and palaces that date back to Spanish colonial times. Though downtown is crowded, you can still wander through the beachfront neighbourhoods.Peruse Lima »
Steeped in history and culture, Lima may seem chaotic but it also possesses sophistication in the way of stately museums, edgy art museums, solemn religious processions and vibrant nightclubs featuring lively tropical beats. Plus, it's the gateway to the rest of this magical country - including the historic town of Cuzco and the legendary Machu Picchu.
Unexpected and diverse - you become well acquainted with Peruvian cuisine in Lima. From pisco sours and ceviche to lomo saltado, chifa, and … guinea pig! Your taste buds are going to explode!Bailey Symes, Flight Centre Barrie South
If you want to surf, paraglide, eat the best ceviche in the world and then explore ancient Inca ruins during the day, Lima is the city for you. At night, head to Barranco if you want to dance the night away and try Peru's authentic pisco sours.Andrea Recavarren, Flight Centre Denman
A trip to Lima would be amiss if it didn't include a walking food tour of the city with a local guide. Fresh fish, organic produce, traditional cooking methods, and some of the best chef's in the world make this city a culinary haven.Monica Giacca, Flight Centre Holt Renfrew Centre
The weather in Lima can be tricky for many travellers, because the city is often obscured by a thick, gray fog called the garua that hangs constantly over the city from June through December and tends to be rather humid and warm all year long.
The late summer months are the best time to enjoy the weather. In March the temperature is warm but not too warm, and there is hardly any rainfall. It's your best bet.
