    Costa central, Lima Peru
    32 reviews

    This is the district where most tourists stay, as the colonial downtown area is a little rundown. This is one of the best areas in the city to find good hotels, fantastic restaurants, and shopping - both for cheap souvenirs and upscale designer wear. A typical tourist route includes walking from Parque Kennedy down Larco Avenue to Larcomar, a mall ...

    Parque del Amor

    Av de la Aviación, Miraflores, Peru
    22 reviews

    This park is a unique place to stroll along the wonderful cliffs landing in the ocean in the midst of Lima. It’s clean and nicely landscaped, has twisting trails taking you far away, probably switching to other parks along the shoreline.

    Larcomar, Miraflores District, Peru
    25 reviews

    This is absolutely one of the most uniquely-situated malls that you will ever visit. There are lots of modern shops and restaurants, and if you time your visit right, there is no better place in the city to get a drink and watch the sun set than at one of the restaurants with balconies overlooking the ocean.

    Plaza de Armas

    Lima, Peru
    17 reviews

    A nice looking plaza to hang out with lots of restaurants bordering the central portion. You can see a lot of historical architecture and enjoy people watching. When I visited last in Jan 2014, they had a festival going on!

    Barrio Chino

    Calle Capón, Lima, Peru
    10 reviews

    Barrio Chino has a reputation for being...not very friendly. My family still took me here on my behalf - especially since the archway was donated to Lima by Taiwan! There is a little pedestrian walkway that is cute and is the entryway to many restaurants and shops. Come during the day, stay vigilant and you'll be fine.

    San Francisco Cathedral and Catacombs

    Plaza Mayor, Lima, Peru
    17 reviews

    This historic church is a usual on the tourist beat. Highlights of the tour (and the site can only be accessed by tour -- available in English) include the painting of Jesus eating guinea pig at the last supper, the fascinating library, and the creepy catacombs. Given how cheap a visit is, and the proximity to Plaza de Armas, I ...

    Parque John F. Kennedy

    Lima, Perú
    7 reviews

    This park is a great place to wander around, especially on the weekend. Get a snack at one of the many food carts that dot the park, and on the weekend, there are often shows in the sunken stage area and a handicrafts market set up close by. This is also one of my favorite places to get Peruvian art ...

    Costa Verde

    Desde Magdalena hasta Chorrillos, Chorrillos Peru
    9 reviews

    This is not the sort of beach that you want to spend hours sunbathing on - it's really rocky and can get incredibly crowded during the summer. With that said, it is a fabulous beach if you are looking for convenience from Lima - there are multiple stairways leading down to it from coastal districts like Miraflores and Barranco - ...

    Museo Larco

    Bolivar 1515, Pueblo Libre, Peru
    5 reviews

    The Museo Larco is not typically on a short list of things-to-do in Lima but it should be. It contains an excellent collection of pre-Columbian artifacts. As a special bonus, you get to go into a back room with floor to ceiling shelves filled with pottery that didn’t fit into the main museum exhibits. Another bonus is a collection of ...

    Paragliding in Lima

    Barrio Miraflores, Lima, Peru
    6 reviews

    Because of the geothermal layers around the cliffs near the Miraflores area, almost any time when looking up, paragliders can be seen in the sky, soaring high and low....and having a really fantastic view of the parklike malecon and ocean below. Impromptu tandem paragliding tours can be easily picked up along the malecon in the Miraflores area for those adventure ...

    Malecón de la Reserva

    Malecón de la Reserva 131, Lima District, Peru
    5 reviews

    This is simply my favorite place in the universe to watch the sun set. The district of Miraflores has been dumping tons of money into this cliff-top walkway, and there are now beautiful parks, playgrounds for kids, public art displays and much more to play in and look at. For a birds-eye view of the coast, there are paragliding companies ...

    5 reviews

    Overlooking the Bajada de Los Banos on Barranco is an unassuming bridge called La Puente de los Suspiros. Legend has it that if you hold your breath while crossing the bridge for the first time, you are granted a wish.

    Parque de las Leyendas

    Avenida Las Leyendas N 500, Lima 32 Peru
    7 reviews

    Pro: This is a very family-friendly zoo that offers visitors the chance to see a wide variety of Peru's diverse fauna without having to traverse the country with binoculars. Con: Some of the animals looked a little worse-for-wear and these aren't exactly state-of-the-art habitats. I don't mean to imply animal abuse, but this definitely does not live up to the ...

    Beautiful ranch where they show off Peruvian horses. My family was able to reserve the day just for us! They started with drinks and appetizers while they showed off the horses - their announcer spoke English very well! Then they gave us a chance to ride on these horses. Off to lunch - Peruvian buffet with live dancing entertainment. Food ...
