Lima - Custom Package
What to expect...
For the fourth consecutive year Peru was awarded the World Travel Award as the best culinary destination. And Lima? Is the culinary hotspot all of South America! Lima is home to many fantastic monuments: the Peruvian Government Palace, a grandiose cathedral, the Archbishop's Palace with elaborately carved balconies and the bright yellow Town Hall. Furthermore, the Plaza de Armas is found in its center with a beautifully decorated bronze fountain. This very underrated city has so much history and sights to see and explore. Between its modern buildings and residences, you'll find a pyramidal temple dating back to 200-700 AD! And not only is Lima great for sightseeing, but its cuisine is also exquisite. Enjoy the famous ceviche, raw fish marinated in lemon juice and spices, with sweet corn and sweet potatoes. Here, there is so much to appreciate!
Upon your arrival, we will pick you up and transfer you to your hotel. This first evening is yours to relax or start discovering the wonderful city of Lima. We recommend strolling through the historic old town, enjoying a light and fountain show in the Paque de la Reserva, and the chic quarter of Miraflores or the wilder quarter of Barranco. And of course along with all the sights to see, there is a great selection of regional culinary specialties. Try the papas a la huancaína: potatoes and eggs topped with a delicious special sauce made of cream cheese, milk, ají amarillo and savory biscuits. Looking for a dessert? Try Picarones in the Barranco district, which is a sweet dish resembling a donut.
