An inexpensive rec to stay on a very short stay in Lima?

by kabesa

I'll be staying in Lima mainly to make my flight connection. My flight out of Lima is at 7 am and I have to arrive from Cusco the previous day. I'll most likely arrive at noon the previous day and will have to leave very early in the morning. Any recs where I can stay on a budget? The airport hotel seems very expensive. Do you think I'll be able to make my morning flight? I'm a little wary of taking taxis on my own in any country.
Also is there something I could see in an afternoon in Lima?

You can stay in a hostel in Miraflores or Barranco, and you can ask them to get you a taxi to the airport. If your flight departs at 7 am, you can leave the hostel 3:30 am to be at 4 am at the airport. Are you thinking of a hostel or hotel?

You can ask the hostel/hotel to call you a safe taxi or transportation to go to downtown. You can check there the Main Square (Government Palace, Cathedral, Municipality, Jiron de la Union) and surroundings. You can eat cebiche (fish marinated in lemon and spices) and drink pisco sour at Cordano, which is a very traditional place right next to the Government Palace. Walking around you will the the colonial balconies, the ancient houses, and the stunning churches (San Francisco and its catacombs two blocks from there!). The San Francisco convent and its catacombs are only a few blocks from there. You can check more on the convent in http://www.museocatacumbas.com/english/index_en.html
All of them can be done in one afternoon, and the same transportation can get you back to the hotel.

Good luck!

That's right, hotels/hostels are able to contact a taxi for you OR they even have their own transportation for pick-up/drop-off purposes. So, you don't have to stay in the airport area. The above mentioned areas have a multitude of accommodation options. Make sure to wake up early, and be sure to use the "wake up" service of your chosen hotel/hostel, so you don't miss the ride OR (worse) the flight. Check my Lima tips if you wish OR check the VT Travel Guide for additional info on accommodations/tours/transportation, etc.

Good Luck & Enjoy Beautiful Peru!

Go to couchserfing.com It's a great site where you can meet locals and stay in their home. Their information is on the site, and you can contact them with questions. If you don't want to stay with someone, you can at least message someone that lives locally about any questions you might have.

Travel Tips for Lima

Excitement and extremes

by shdw100

My favorite thing about Lima is the people. While a missionary there, I grew to love the people so much for the humble circumstances in which they live in. It has given me a greater understanding and appreciation for what I have, and also inspired me to reach out and help others in this small world of ours more. Back in 1990 when the terrorist group Shining Path was still running around, I was walking down the street one evening in a little shantytown on the outskirts of Lima. A guy ran past me, then the military whizzed by about 30 seconds later. Then I heard an explosion, and the lights went out and the water was out when I got home. The next day as I was walking to a newsstand, the front page of the news stated that the guy running was a terrorist and he threw a bomb under a car, which knocked the lights and water out. When I turned around, I noticed that the picture on the front page was exactly the corner across from the newstand. There was still blood on the street and wall from the night before. It was quite the experience!

Via Crucis

by K-nalla

Every year, 25 years now, Mario Valencia has taken to heart the road covered by Jesus on is way to the cross by doing it himself from different parts of downtown Lima all the way to Cerro San Cristobal. Not a small feat as the cross weights over 70 kilos. Every year it brings more people and certainly a different side of Lima can be seen
Every year during Easter. starts at different places every year (each time closer to the cerro, I think he's getting old....

Late night, superficial option

by baanasta about Aura

Aura is the quintessential club in Lima. It is located in Larcomar right next to Pardo's chicken, and generally does not get going until after 2:00 AM, but stays crowded until way after 5:00 AM on the weekends. Aura is very big with two levels and a large outside area. The music is usually solid with current hits and some techno.

The cover is steep (S/40) and you are bound to get some superficial attidtude, but it is a good late not option when you don't want the party to end. Dress to impress. They can get a little NY-style at the door and be somewhat selective as to who gets in.

great ambience

by jpizquierdo about Asia de cuba

The place is very cool, great decoration ( I have been in Asia de cuba in Manhattah and Argentina ) I like more the ambience or decoration here, even do the food is better in the manhattan one, here the food is very well presented but the flavor are not a perfect match, I eat the tuna fish , who was incrediblely fresh, very well cook with a sauce that doesn’t let you feel the real flavor of the tuna fich. We try also theoctopus, and we have the same feeling , tha the potatos coming with it onlt takes the flavor out and is not a plus. Everithin very well set on the plate. I,m not saying that the food is not Ok, Im saying that the place and atmosphere has a 10 on a 1 to 10 scale and the food a 7 on the same scale and service alsonot as good as the ambience a 6.

China Town in Lima

by Charlin_Baby

Southeast of the Plaza de Armas, near the Central Market, is the start of China Town or Barrio Chino as it is called. It is easily recognizable by the Chinese Arch over the entrance. Lima's China Town is primarily known for its Chinese-Peruvian cuisine, which is famed for being the best in Lima. The area also has a few temples and interesting stores if you have some extra time. For visitors spending the day sightseeing in central Lima, this is a great area to stop for lunch, but probably doesn't warrant a great deal of time for touring around. The main street in China Town is Capón. - Chicken with piña
