Lima or Town of Smog

Our trip started quite poorly. We missed our connecting train to the airport and had no seat in the aircraft until a few minutes before departure. Eventually, we reached Lima without any other distrubances. Our taxi driver didn't seem to know where our hostel is and he tried to convince us to stay at another place at first. But we assured him to …

A city with Little to it.

We left Huaca mid morning to catch our short bus up to the capital Lima. In the normal South American fashion there was some sort of drama and we eventually got on a bus about an hour and a half later than we provisionally planned.

We stayed in the 1990 Hostel in the nicer older part of town, near to the main square and nice restaurants. It was a lovely spacious hostel with a nice bar and balcony looking out across at the Art museum. We knew Lima wasnt going to be ...

Miraflores from one end to the other

A travel blog entry by lkooistra


Ok. So Judy and I like to talk right?! So we were talking to this couple in the airport in Miami. Turns out he owns a restaurant in Miraflores. It is highly rated on Tripadvisor. So of course we had to go there for lunch today. We walked about 4 miles from one end of Miraflores to the other in order to get there but it was worth it! Luis, the owner, was very gracious, told us what to have, treated me to my first Pisco sour( Judy has had several ...

Lima, Peru 30th Dec - 5th Jan

A travel blog entry by fae-neilvsworld

This is a top pick!

... beach that we took, again with immaculately kept gardens.

Lima City Centre - We spent most of our time here as this is where we stayed. There were hundreds of souvenir shops around selling artisan goods and crafts. There were also a series of walking streets lined with high street shops & markets too. The centre was busy with people day and night, even on new years eve at 9pm people were still shopping!

    Marco was quite simply the best host I had during my time in Peru - Very helpful with everything, sharing his knowledge of the city, loaning bus cards, mixing drinks and making his guests feel so comfortable. The apartment has been renovated to hotel standard, but still feels like home. Only minor gripe is the location, which is not central (about 6 blocks to nearest metrobus station, bit less to local busses), but this can also be a good thing for your sleep: the area is pretty quiet.
