Top Reasons to Visit Lima

People visit Peru for the great archaeological sites, the history, and the culture. There are several places that tourists plan to see and explore but usually Lima doesn’t make that list. The city is the capital of Peru and is a bit crowded at times, but that’s the greatest thing about it. Lima is a great place to understand and explore the true essence of Peru. But for some reason, most tourists just dismiss it as a stop-over to the more interesting places in Peru.

This city is ancient and people have been living here for several centuries now. They’ve left behind traces of their existence in the heart of this city and that’s worth exploring. So step out of your 5-star hotels in Lima and enjoy your surroundings. Here’s a list of great things you can do here.

Paragliding

A visit to Lima would be incomplete without visiting the wonderful Miraflores district. This district has the best gardens and views. However, the best thing about Miraflores is the paragliding. You can see adventurous souls jumping off the cliffs, gliding on the winds from the Pacific Ocean. If you’re brave enough, you can leap off the cliff and try paragliding yourself. There are several trainers available that can guide you through the process. It’ll be an experience of the lifetime and certainly worth leaving the comforts of your finest luxury hotel in Peru for.

The Cuisine

Peruvian cuisine is fast becoming acknowledged as some of the best cuisines in the world. What makes the food stand out is that it has several influences on it. Peru is a coastal country and has ample access to the best sea produce. However, it’s also has mountainous terrain to the east and dense forests along its borders, which offers a variety of produce as well. This, along with the influence of Chinese, Spanish, European, Japanese, and African cuisines has made Peruvian food very interesting. You can sample some of it in the finest luxury hotel or explore the streets for cafes and restaurants that the locals love.

The Ruins

Very few people realize that Lima has been inhabited for a couple of thousand years. The people of the ancient Lima culture build great pyramids that you can still see today. The Huaca Pucllana in Miraflores and the Pachacamac just a few miles away from the city are worth visiting.

As you can see, there are several places to visit and things to do in Lima. So, why not book a room in the finest luxury hotel in Peru and explore this beautiful city?
