Tours that include Lima
Peru is a diverse and enriched nation, blessed with rolling landscapes and a fascinating history; Lima, the capital of Peru, doesn’t quite hold firmly to this landscape of colour and antiquity, its charms and discoveries obscured by a thick, smoggy vapour.
Before you turn tail and run, the best adventures often begin with unexpected events, and if you descend below the blanketed skyline, you’ll uncover a trove of brilliant sights, activities and cuisines.
Peruvians love flavour. Lima is the ideal stop on the foodie trail, boasting a variety of restaurants and takeaway options from the surrounding regions, ensuring the freshest fare touches your lips; the meals are not always what you’d expect, so keep an eye out for experimental recipes. The darling of any Lima menu is the seafood, a flaky experience packed with juices and divine tastes, including a specialty of the house – its plankton, but not as you know it. The best part? Your hip pocket won’t feel the burn.
Speaking of burns, don’t forget to slip, slop, slap, as the roasting desert sun is quick to bite unsuspecting skin; after caking on a layer of sunscreen, step outside and play chase with the Magic Water Circuit. A spectacular place of water, music, light and patterns, watch the great flumes blast off and feel the cooling spray on your face.
