This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Chorrillos, Balneario sur, Lima Peru
You'll visit a small, local artisanal fish market and its pier with a beautiful view of the coast where your guide will explain about the daily life of the small-scale fishermen before going on a 20-minute boat tour, weather permitting. From the boat, you'll see the contrast between the basic colorful fishers' boats taken over by the pelicans and the modern skyline of Miraflores in the background as well as the desert landscape that is typical for most of the Peruvian coastline. In the boat, the guide will share some historical facts and stories about the places you see.
Duration: 40 minutes
Stop At: Morro Solar, Chorillos, Lima Peru
You'll go up the Morro Solar hill where, on a clear day, you can enjoy a beautiful view of Lima. On some days, you may experience the typical Lima fog, 'neblina', which is a different, but also interesting experience.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Cementerio de Nueva Esperanza, San Pedro SN, Lima Peru
After an interesting drive through different local neighborhoods, you'll reach the 2nd largest cemetery in the world. It's a very impressive place, different than any other cemetery you have visited before. It's located amidst the hills and human settlements. You'll have the chance to look around and if you're into photography, you'll surely take a bunch of artistic photos.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: San Juan De Miraflores, Urbanization Umamarca, San Juan de Miraflores 15058, Peru
You'll then head towards the human settlement where our local cook has prepared a delicious lunch for your group. These human settlements are the result of the late 20th century growth towards the hills by migrant populations in Lima. While these are the poorest neighborhoods of Lima, they're filled with hardworking people who're trying to provide a better life for their children. The visit focuses on hope, optimism and positive initiatives.
After lunch, a local guide will show you around her neighborhood located on the hillsides of Lima’s outskirts and will tell you more about the local project your visit supports and on some days you'll be able to witness the participating kids in action!
The aim of this experience is a genuine intercultural experience where you'll visit and interact with several locals. You'll learn more about daily life in this harsh environment but will also get the chance to be introduced to some of the efforts carried out to improve the situation. Every tour is a bit different as other places and people are visited and depending on the fitness and physical abilities of the group. On some tours we'll visit the workshop of a group of ladies that organised themselves into a small business that manufactures handicrafts that are then sold as fair trade products. On other tours, we'll visit the so-called 'wall of shame' that separates one of the poorest neighborhoods of Lima from one of the richest.
