I arrived in Lima late and experienced the scariest traffic jam in my life. The cab driver was driving on roads that put shame on the word ¨road¨ with cars that shouldn't have been allowed on a street 10 years ago. While he was driving he was also taking on the phone, listening to the radio and talking to me. I'm not sure when he actually did find …
... rebuilt, and now under all of the fog you can find beautiful colonial treasures.
The best place to see this architecture is in the Plaza de Armas, containing the original Palacio de Gobierno and a 375 year old bronze fountain. There are also many museums, galleries and churches to explore in this area. Another good place to visit is Miraflores, part of the social centre of Lima. We wander through a park named after JFK and totally crawling with cats! Apparently the old priest of ...
... pinch yourself to remember that this is a bone from a human over 1000 years ago that you're cleaning! Michaela also showed us what had happened to the skeleton that she had out and was currently studying - it was a female skeleton who had likely been sacrificed, but there were old breaks on her ribs, as well as trauma to her pelvis that had likely caused her death. It was so interesting to see how she examined the skeleton to find out its story. On Friday, she showed us how to tell ...
... did our group pack heavy. Again, so thankful not to have to worry about handling our bags! Seeing the quantity of luggage just from our group really makes you appreciate Disney's service!
The drive to the airport was fairly short and uneventful. It was sad to be leaving this beautiful city, but we had amazing memories that we would be taking with us from our two days here. Once at the airport it was a quick walk to the security area where Michael handed each of ...
We set off to the airport nice
and early, and flew to Lima this morning. We were imagining a tiny propeller
plane, but it was huge and packed. Loads of locals, a football team and every
seat was taken – it’s obviously a busy little route. It only took an hour and the only unnerving

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Continental Lima
Hotel was clean and very simple, Receptionists weren't very friendly, but not unfriendly either. When I arrivedd at 9.00p.m. there was no food served, anymore. This would have been okay, if I could have gone out and buy something. Not to go out in this neighbourhood in the night has been strongly recommended to me.
The room was clean, very small and tight, but it was just fine for one night.
Would not recommend it for longer stays.
