BEACHES

The capital of Peru is famous for many things: Its magnificent Spanish colonial city center, amazing cuisine, and outrageous museums, among others. Although Lima lies right on the coast, few international travelers plan to spend time on its broad Pacific beaches.

This isn’t entirely an oversight. If the Peruvian coastline is famous for one thing, it is the Humboldt (Peru) Current, a cold and nutrient-rich-blast of Antarctic water that flows swiftly up the South American coast to Piura, a natural headland north of Lima.

CITY AND ARCHITECTURE

Visit Plaza de Armas of Lima, the birthplace of the city of Lima, as well as the core of the city. Located in the Historic Centre of Lima, and surrounded by the Government Palace.

HISTORICAL SIGHTS

Take a trip from Lima, wich is in central Peru, to Machu Picchu, which is on the south. Machu Picchu is one of Peru’s iconic landmarks and Central America’s natural wonder.

DINE AND WINE

Eat our famous Ceviche, one of Peru’s main dishes. The dish is typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with ají or chili peppers.
