Lima is not one of my favorite cities but it has a nice colonial-style historical centre and a very cool "Magic Water Tour". The Cuisine though is one of the best I've tried! The food is amazing!

Lima is an ever cloudy underestimated city. It's rarely considered a destination when one goes to Peru, but it's gastronomy and restaurant scene makes it worth spending at least 4 days here, eating and drinking probably better than anywhere else in the world.

I love South America! The people, language, culture....and of course, so many natural wonders. I would want to base myself in Lima and travel the entire continent. I can get by with the Spanish that I know, but would love the opportunity to become immersed so I could leave speaking fluently.

After reading a lot of reviews about Lima, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay there even for a day. Maybe because I had fairly low expectations, I was actually pretty impressed with the sites that this city offers. To be honest, it’s not a city where you can step out of your hotel and just explore – you need to do some homework and know where you want to go and what you want to see. So, be prepared and explore – you will be pleasantly surprised, there is plenty to see.

I went to Lima without any plan, no expectations at all, My sister and I went there only because the ticket was cheap one week before my spring break. We were pleasantly surprised as we didn't expect much from this capital, thought it would be just like other big cities. It is hard to explain what made us like this city but there was an exciting vibe and energy. The food was excellent, I would say the best among all countries I have visited among South and Central America. I can see myself going back there again.

Lima is perched on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, for starters. Then add beaches, an incredible gastronomic scene that grows year by year, historical edifices, and ruins that have existed even before the Incas. What a great city...in my opinion it is too often overlooked by tourists.

One of South America's largest and most important cities. It has a wealth of colonial history, and has several great museums focused on Peru's precolombian past as well. Lima is also a great food city, with a wonderful variety of seafood. Before you leave make sure you have ceviche at least a couple of times.

This is a city very rich in culture, history and nice people.. though i would be cautious around some people this is a great city, some parts are similar to Los Angeles and some are more rural and destitute, but overall its a nice place
