Absolutely true. Not only in Lima but even in remote Andean towns you will find tons of well stocked pharmacies. I have never seen so many pharmacies/chemists in my life.
You usually do not buy a box of something but a certain number of tablets, even for aspirin! Even in Huancavelica, in the middle of nowhere, you could find all sorts of antibiotics & buy over the counter.

Make sure you do not take the Diamox if you are sensitive to sulfa. Also a single aspirin accompanied by a single antacid (such as a Rolaids tablet) can do wonders for altitiude sickness. The locals drink tons of Mate de Coca tea and many hotels will have it available in the lobby.

Thank you all for responding.

Travel Tips for Lima

Drinking Pisco Sours ;)

by MovingMere

Don't make the mistake of thinking that this popular drink is Chilean! Luis said that Chile took the grapes that make pisco unique back to their country and now there is confusion about its origin. While I was there, the news did a segment on a pisco sour taste testing, and even Chileans prefer the Peruvian version over their own.

These pictures are from a fair in downtown Lima. The fairs are seasonal, but basically go year round, coinciding with holidays.

Organic & healthy!!

by Urzu about Bioferia

I thought the Bioferia was a very interesting place to visit if you're around Lima on a Saturday morning (it's only open that day). It's a street market where you'll be able to find many organic products, such as fruits and vegetables, herbs, or for example goat-milk products, but also some other things such as beauty products or accesories. It's about one block long, so it won't take too long to see everything. You can ask for samples if you're not sure whether to take something home, and make sure you stop by the food stands, as the have some delicious vegetarian/organic snacks!!
Also important to know, this market is only open on Saturdays, from 8 in the morning until 14:00!!

Lima Jorge Chavez -> Great Airport and Free Wifi!

by alohagunnar

There is free Wifi throughout the airport provided by Telefonica but electrical outlets are scarce until you pass through immigration and reach the boarding gates.

At the entrance to the nice 4D Cafe on the second floor across from Starbucks you will find a single American style three prong plug outlet. The cafe provides there own secured Wifi(password "aereo") which you can enjoy if you buy a drink or icecream.

There is also a nice big food court on the second floor before you pass through immigration which is also available to non passengers which has McDonalds, Papa John's Pizza, Chinese, local fast food and more... but the prices are 2x and 3x higher than the rest of Peru.

The dining choice is much more limited once you pass through immigration(sandwiches, empanadas, and other snacks).

There are several Duty Free shops that accept a combination of US$ and any left over change in Soles which you might want to get rid of.

The departure tax(US$ only) is US$30 and they give you change in US$.

I paid 20 Soles total for a random taxi from the Plaza De Armas in historic Lima to the airport without haggling and there was no traffic delay all the way.

There only appears to be one international flight an hour so the security and immigration lines were non existant when I passed through on a Wednesday afternoon but there was a 10 minute wait at the departure tax counter before you pass through security and immigartions.

There is a nice view of the ocean once you reach the boarding gates.

All in all Lima has a great airport!

Not just to eat

by baanasta about Asia de Cuba

Resembling the one in Buenos Aires, Asia de Cuba in Lima is a prime example of how this city is starting to come on to its own and become more cosmopolitan. Draped in a modern decor, Asia de Cuba offers a great mix of good food, strong drinks, and a very trendy atmosphere. Besided the restuarant there is a decent sized lounge area that serves an ideal place for a pregame cocktail. Make sure you try the Passion Martini. Reservations are not required but they are a good idea if you plan on going on a weekend. Salmon
