    ...especially ceviche!

    Stéphanie Jung says:

    Have a ceviche in Barranco in front of the Pacific Ocean.

    Susan Elizabeth says:

    Walk through El Circuito Mágico del Agua

    Colleen Derkach says:

    At night make a visit to Circuito Magico del Agua - waterfall park!

    Matthias Soriat says:

    Water Park; Magical Water Circuit!



    Head out to nearby cities and sites

    Ja Bone says:

    Go to Cuzco or Ica.

    Andreas Schuhmann says:

    Chachapoyas, Kúelap and Machu Picchu.



    Get around by bus

    Steph Anie says:

    Take a local bus (at your own risks as it goes through suburbian favelas) to go and visit the archeological site of Pachacamac.

    Alala BryBon says:

    This is just a tip for someone who wants to take the bus in any cities in Peru for long travel. Ask for a discount at the counter when you buy your ticket. They don't promote it, but if you ask for it, they'll definitely give it to you and it makes a pretty decent difference in the price.

    Ja Bone says:

    Sit in the back of the bus.



    Protect your skin

    Andrea Polo Lozano says:

    Wear sunscreen!



    Explore Miraflores

    Craig Hall says:

    Go to Huaca Hullamarca and Huaca Pucllana; both are pre-Incan archaelogical sites not too far from Miraflores. Pucllana also has a really good restaurant there.

    Johnathan Paramore says:

    The best salsa clubs are in Miraflores.

    Roxy Barbz Ryan says:

    Miraflores' 'pizza street' night life is amazing.

    Lavon Hart says:

    Mira Flores and the ruin located near there.



    Go at the right time of year

    Sara Correa Lindo says:

    Travel between November and April when the weather is nice.



    Make sure to catch the best sights in Lima

    Kristoffer Francisco says:

    Cathedral de San Francisco - go to it and be amazed.

    Oscar Suarez says:

    Larco Museum, Old Lima Downtown, Barranco and Cathedral are a must as well.
