George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is located just north of Houston and is easily accessible from I-45 and I-69. Users of public transportation can also reach the airport through the METRO Bus. Nonstop flights to Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM) usually last for about six-and-a-half hours.
Car rental kiosks are available at international arrivals in LIM, and you can take the car southwest on Avenida Elmer Faucett to get into the city.
History buffs should see the Aliaga House, which is the oldest house in the Americas; the 2,000-year-old Huaca Pucllana pyramid is a can't-miss location as well. The San Francisco monastery adds a creepy touch to historic tours with its eerie underground catacombs.
If you prefer modern sights, visit the Parque de la Reserva's Magic Water Circuit, a 13-fountain interactive water show with illuminated nighttime displays, or Barranco, a trendy bohemian village with stylish cafes and some of the city's best clubs.
Thrill-seekers can parasail at the Malecon Park, and anyone who enjoys nature can take in its coastal views, gardens and sculptures.
Lima is in the southern hemisphere, so summer goes from December to May and winter goes from June to November. Summer temperatures often reach the 80s, while winter temperatures can struggle to hit 60 degrees. Drink bottled water and avoid raw vegetables during your visit, but don't worry about the ceviche; the lime really does kill bacteria.
