Lima, Peru’s capital, rests on the western coast of South America along the South Pacific Ocean. Lima is a subtropical desert with a warm season from December to April, and a cooler, humid season from June to October. Although it is quite close to the equator, Lima has a mild, arid climate, making it pleasant year-round. From June to September the sky is mostly cloudy, and the air is misty, which can make it feel cooler. The mist; however, can make for some very cool photos as you explore the city.

You’re in for a serious treat with Lima hostels. They offer amazing décor, fun atmospheres, and comfy lounges where you can hang out with your hostel mates. Another great thing about hostels in Lima is that there are several locations to choose from that are close to beaches, the airport, or energetic streets. The best hostels in Lima are also highly rated, so you’re guaranteed to find a great place to stay; whether it’s a private room or dorm is up to you.

Staying in Central Lima, which is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the best way to experience the city’s history. Staying around San Isidro or Miraflores will guarantee a more upscale experience, complete with bars, clubs, restaurants, and shops. If you’re looking for a more artsy, hip area then Barranco is right for you with it’s vibrant music scene and colourful streets.

Exploring the Plaza de Armas and Palacio de Gobierno are great ways to get a sense of the city’s colonial past; and the San Francisco Monastery is a top spot to see one of the city’s many amazing religious buildings. You won’t want to miss the light and water show in Parque de la Reserva once the sun has gone down, either! If you’re keen for an adrenaline rush, look into going tandem paragliding to get some amazing views of the city. Of course, you can’t go to Lima and not see the Huaca Pucllana, an ancient pyramid in Miraflores.

Getting around Lima by public transportation can be a bit intense. Micros (and Combis) are one of the main ways to get around but can be in rough shape as they are generally made of recycled parts or old vehicles. Look for a sticker in the window announcing the destination. There is also a network of city buses, as well as a bus rapid transportation system that are much more regulated. If you’re staying within its vicinity, the Metro is also a good option although it has limited service.
Be aware of fares when taking taxis as they vary drastically.
