a day in lima

Know it should be longer, but we only have a day and evening in Lima as we fly out at 7am. Would appreciate a couple of must sees that might be close to a hotel that you would suggest. Thanks

Hi Liz M,

You’re right, a day and a few hours is not enough to really enjoy the city of Lima. I recommend the Allpa Hotel in Miraflores, they have all the ameneties and it’s located in Miraflores near shopping centers, restaurants, and bars. It’s also a short walk from Parque Kennedy which is next to impressive colonial style cathedrals. You have to try Ceviche when you come to Lima. I recommend Punta Azul, in Miraflores. There might be a wait when you first arrive but it’s worth it. With one day I would recommend checking out the Plaza de Armas (the City Center) where you’ll find the Government Palace, a Cathedral, and lots of shops. You can also check out the Monastery of San Francisco Catacombs nearby. In the evening, take a taxi to Parque de las Reservas (Lima’s Water Fountain Park). In the evening the fountains are lit up and beautiful. You can end the night by going to Calle Berline on Parque Kennedy where there’s plenty of dancing. I hope you have a great time in Lima!

Stay in Miraflores or Barranco.

No matter where you stay you can easily get a taxi to take from A to B. The Plaza De Armas and San Francisco Church and Catacombs are easily visted. If you get to the Plaza De Armas early enough you can see the "changing of the guard". My wife and I really enjoyed the short tour of Huacapucclanna too which is just a few block North of Park Kennedy.

There are open-top bus tours departing from Kennedy Park and also from LarcoMar Mall in Miraflores. The night tours include a stop to see the light show at the water fountain park.
