Apartments and condos are the most popular choice for vacation rentals in historic Lima. Clean, sleek city condos in the exclusive Miraflores area feature handsome wood floors, luxury kitchens and every imaginable amenity for you and your family’s comfort. Choose a penthouse condo, and you’ll be treated to fabulous views of the city lights, Palomino Islands and Pacific Ocean. Imagine stepping on to your rooftop terrace for a glass of wine, while the sun sets over the ocean. A wonderful apartment choice is in a boutique apartment complex in the garden of an old mansion – absolutely charming and tasteful with beamed ceilings and arched doors and windows.
Lima welcomes you to modern shopping and ancient churches, Pacific beaches and city-central markets. Take a city walking tour and stop at the 17th-century San Pedro de Lima church and see the underground catacombs at the Monasterio San Francisco. The central market is a favorite stopover to sample churros (the Spanish version of the donut) or stop at a local pub for Peru’s national drink - a pisco sour, a rather refreshing drink with brandy, lemon or lime and sugar. The entire “Centro de Lima” features a lovely mix of graceful, age-old architecture, the Governor’s Palace (on the main Plaza de Armas square), delightful dining along pedestrian-only streets and a host of quaint Peruvian shops. Take the half-day tour to nearby Pachacamac Temple for an insider view of Incan architecture, culture and history. The Incans created an estimated 50 million sun-dried bricks on the construction of the enormous Temple of the Sun alone!
Morning, noon and night, Miraflores draws residents and visitors alike to a thriving district of shopping, floral parks, cafes, restaurants, nightclubs and Parque Kennedy, the area’s central plaza. The city’s only remaining pre-Inca ruin mud-brick temple is here also, as are numerous galleries, theatres and other cultural attractions. Peruvian artisans offer an exquisite mix of crafts – striking gold and silver jewelry, alpaca, wood carvings and sculpture. Try a relaxing meal at Las Tejas for guitar-laced outdoor dining and authentic Peruvian food and drink. You’re only a five-minute walk from the beach for a day of surfing, parasailing or swimming.
