A brilliant newly opened museum, also being designated as the National Museum of Peru. The exhibits are thrilling and the explanations are beautifully and accurately translated in both English and Spanish.

Pachacama is an area still being discovered. The size of the area is amazing and the uncovered buildings are being left in their original state.

I took an uber to and from Pachacamac. It was about s/60 from Miraflores. I also got my guide when I arrived, there were several waiting for groups. I think we paid s/25 for a guided tour for 4, which was very reasonable.

I would recommend hiring a tour guide who can provide transportation and a narrative so you know what you're seeing. It's not expensive and definitely worth it.
