When you arrive in Lima, you’ll find yourself in the bright and busy Jorge Chaves International Airport (LIM). You can easily rent a car by the international arrivals area. Alternatively, taxis and public transportation can get you around the city as well.
Once you’re in Lima, stop by the Plaza de Armas in the center of Lima’s historical district. While there, be sure to see the impressive 17th century Lima Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace. You’ll want to visit the Miraflores district too, with its trendy watering holes such as Treff, and El Malecon, the six mile walkway of parks and statues along the seafront.
Lima may be one huge city, but it’s made up of many smaller ones that grew together. The San Isidro/Miraflores area simply bursts with upscale restaurants like Saqra, and flowering gardens. Adventurous travelers can head for El Malecon, for para-sailing off the high cliffs over the Pacific. More studious types will enjoy learning about the 3,000 years of Peruvian culture at the Larco Museum.
You may be tired after your seven hour flight from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to Lima. If so, head upstairs to the airport’s 24 hour food court for some coffee. Once caffeinated, you’ll be ready to explore Peru’s history, art and culture in its charming capitol city.
