I enjoyed our tour of the Huaca Pucllana. It was so interesting and gave an insight into the history of the Peruvians. Huaca means sacred and it is a construction of a high place of worship with people dwelling in and around it. Also got...More
We had a day all planned out with this place in mind. However, it was a Wednesday and they were closed by the time we got there for some reason. They guy at the door allowed us in to take pictures though.
As it was within walking distance of 1 hour from my hotel, I came close to a hugh brick wall right behind the fence. May be 10 m high, millions and millions of handmade bricks. I surrounded the place and found the entrance. The entry...More

A fascinating walk into ruins in the middle of the city. It was easy to walk to from our B&B. Quite incredible to see the ruins pop out from behind city buildings. Tour was very interesting and quite detailed. Only caveat is when waiting for...More
Huaca Pucllana is a huge pyramid built out of adobe bricks between 200-700 AD by the Lima people. If you are in Miraflores it is definitely worth taking a tour. There is a small admission charge which includes a guided tour (there are English speaking...More
We are traveling to Peru this summer, and will have one full day and an evening in Lima (~ 10am through evening, flying out the next morning). I am trying to decide the best sights to see. I would like to fit them all in, but don't know if that's feasible. I would like to see Iglesia de San Francisco, Plaza de Armas, get a pisco sour at El Cordano, stop at Huaca Pucllana, and maybe see a couple parks (maybe Parque del Amor, so we can see the cliffs over the ocean). Any thoughts or...More

Also, is it generally safe for tourists w/ cameras and such to walk along the cliffs in this area?

It sounds do-able to me. If you need to cut time, I'd do it on the downtown portion. Be aware that traffic from the Magic Water Circuit to the airport will be heavy, especially around the water park, so be sure to allow yourself enough time. If your flight is at 1 am, you really don't need to be at the airport until 10 pm.

Huaca Pucllana restaurant prices (14 Replies)
HI, we will be in Lima for two nights with our two teenage children. I was thinking of going to the Huaca Pucllana restaurant on the second night - as it will be good to see the ruins and eat in that setting. I can't find pricing anywhere - can anyone give me a rough idea of cost?. We don't want to spend a lot of money on fine dining for the 4 of us. Also - should I book ahead of time or will the night before be early enough to make booking? We will be there on a Sunday night. Thanks

Maybe about $50 per person, depending on how many courses. If you want the patio you need to book ahead of time. BTW are they even open Sunday night? You may have to settle for a late lunch instead.
