Re: Lima

We just got back from Lima yesterday. We spent 1.5 days there as well. On our final day we arranged for a guide with a car to pick us up from our hotel at 10am and end at the Lima airport at 8pm. Renato from taxilimaperu(dot com) gave us a great city tour. Have a look at his web-page for an example of his tours. I highly recommend Renato, great tour. We also stopped at a wonderful restaurant for lunch (which became packed before we left-I am pretty sure we were the only tourists there). He was good driver in that crazy city. I loved Lima and we managed to pack in a great deal of it with our time with Renato. BUT I think I would have hated it on our own as it is a huge overwhelming place.I can not say enough as to how happy we were with our decision to hire a guide for Lima! Renato was great, he did not disapoint us!!! John & Robin

If you're there on a weekend have lunch off the main square in Barranco at the fiesta de la comida. You can try great food from all over Peru.

Gamarra

by chancay

in the district of Gamarra in Lima you can buy almost everything but especially clothes´for very cheap prices. Next to a lot of lower quality ware you´ll find also lots of dress maker there who can make for a really great price your personal trousers or whatever.

local buses

by TXgal

Catch one if you can.........they come flying by. Extremely cheap, but hard to figure out which one to take. Don't stand too close to one if you're on the sidewalk, the exhaust fumes will knock you out, I don't think they have any air pollution laws! cough...cough.....

The Museum Cafe

by grandmaR about Café del Museo

I looked into this restaurant wistfully, but did not have time to go in and eat. Apparently the Café was designed by architect Jordi Puig, to provide the ambiance of an old chateau (photo 2) I have no idea what this says, but it is from their menu

See Plaza de Armas

by easterntrekker

We took a city tour and took sime time to see Plaza de Armas. It is the site where the city was founded in 1535. The terrible earthquake in the 17th century leveled most of it but a central bronze fountain survived . Lima has done a good job of cleaning this area and the tourist police are very visible . It's a good place to admire old Lima
