    The museum is impressively beautiful, extensive and informative. Afterwards we dinned at the restaurant which was also a pleasant experience. Both and atmosphere is of supreme quality.

    I was pleasantly surprised that this was more than just a fountain show, there were rides and a play area for young kids. There was also a small train on wheels that drove around the entire park that adults can get on as well as children, it was a fun experience.

    Close to lots of shops and restaurants and history and beaches. I could not have been happier with my choice of neighborhood to stay in.

    This site is very interesting to visit - and a guide is crucial. However the site itself is not very accessible - and not much in the way of interpretation. So you Linda walk up to the fence, listen to the guide, take a pic and leave. But it’s hard to imagine what it was really like and for a main archeological site it would be great for a bit more ‘bringing it to o life’.

    We loved walking across this square. It was very clean, lovely gardens and impressive buildings. Excellent for a photo or two too; and if you’re visiting Lima this should most certainly be on your itinerary.

    Wonderful stretch of coast to meander, stop and watch the world. Couple of cafes on route and a public toilet. Went from Chinese garden to Larcomar

    We were so glad to visit this site. Its about 30 min from the city. Its well maintained with a museum, llamas, roads to drive on. You should definitely take a driver and a guide to take you along the route. The site itself has ruins on deserted road facing the ocean. The best ruins are the temple. It has beautiful views. The stones are different than the inca laid in terms of foundation. It has interesting history.

    In a park in central Lima. There are a variety of cool fountains. Several times a night the fountains are lit up with colors and a projected history of Peru. Very inexpensive.

    Very beautiful spot in the Andes, hidden from regular tourism, very authentic and preserved. The trip to there was a bit stressful (to me who has fear from heights), as the road does not look the safest and goes along the mountains growing in altitude with every meter. The camping place is also very nice, they rent sleeping bags and tents but bringing your own is better and cheaper, as the walk to the campsite is not even that much.
    The altitude may be a problem, but a Sorochi pill resolves everything in an hour. Also at night could be extremely cold. Locals sell wood for campfire which is very convenient and important at night. Special equipment or at least 3 layers of warm clothes are a necessity there! Other than the inconveniences of the cold and the altitude, the hike is not the easiest but rewarding with some of the most beautiful views I've seen. Definitely worth visiting, I went twice :D

    An astonishing collection and display of the many cultures and eras of pre Colombian Peruvian art. Mostly ceramics of course, but also superb ancient textiles and painting as well. There are galleries for contemporary works too, but mostly the focus is on ancient and colonial art, the main collection ending in the early 20th century. And both the old and new pieces, both sacred and profane, astonished me in their creativity and execution. If you like art or history, you'd better give yourself some time for this experience.

    The best space to walk in the morning or in the evening, whether to exercise or simply take a pleasant walk
