"you should stay in Lima for a..." Peru Things to Do Tip by Maai

Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos


you should stay in Lima for a few days. At first the city looks awfull, especially when you visit it in winter time (june-september), but you have to realise it is the beating heart of Peru and almost one third of the peruvians live there.
you will get use to the smell of the cars, the pollution and the hectic scenes and you will meet real peruvians.

If you get sick of it all, take a local bus to Chosica, it only takes half on hour and there is always sun. It is a quiet small town.

the picture is taken in 'parque del amor' in Miraflores in Lima, near the coast.
