5 Entertaining Things to Do in Lima, Peru

Gorgeous Machu Picchu one of the modern seven wonders of the world

So you are interested in visiting Peru? I recently had the pleasure of customizing a memorable trip for a client traveling in February 2022. I enjoy planning unique experiences for each of my clients. Most travelers prefer to travel with other people, but maybe your friends can not travel with you? Do you forgo the trip of your dreams, or do you hire an expert that can customize an experience where you are not alone? Are you concerned about your safety? There is no need to curate private transfers and guided tours for my clients. I can do the same for you too! Solo travel is thriving now more than ever. Peru is a destination for groups, family, romance, and more. After planning this trip for my client, I am currently interested in visiting the destination as well. I learned so much about Peru, Machu Picchu, and Cusco.

Let me share a little information about Peru. Lima is the capital and largest city in Peru. With its bustling city life, rich culture, and eye-catching architecture, there’s so much to see and do that it could take several vacations to the land to encounter it all honestly. The entertainment found within the city’s borders indeed is a treat to all tourists. Since there’s no shortage of things to do and Lima may overwhelm its newcomers, we’ve narrowed it down to five things that all tourists should experience during their visit. 

Street Food Carts 

One of the city’s most sought-after features is its abundance of street food vendors. The inexpensive street food options are endless and an absolute delight to the palette. The street carts found in Lima are primarily owned by famous chefs and hold a high standard on the quality of the food they decide to offer. 

Primitive Architecture

Large colonial structures with meticulously detailed features are all over the City of Lima. The vibrant golds and rich colors are sure to catch your attention as you walk through the streets and head downtown. 

Try Pisco

Native to Peru, Pisco is a light brandy that the winemakers of the nation created. The foamy sour drink infused with bitters is one of the most favored by connoisseurs worldwide. If Pisco is a little too bitter for your palette, have it mixed with ginger ale, splashes of lime juice, and topped with a cherry. This tasty alternative is called the Chilcano. 

Explore Boho Barranco

As the country’s trendiest and most artistic region, Boho Barranco attracts many sightseers. Sitting atop a ravine, the views from the district seem to go on forever as you wind through the streets to find all the sweet little art galleries, museums and boutiques buy souvenirs. Many of the galleries showcase the making of their art forms and let their guests reach into their artistic side by getting hands-on. 

Cruise Along the Coastline

Along the coastline, you will find an assortment of entertaining things to do as you cruise aside the water’s edge taking in all of its beauty. Enjoy endless views from a cliff’s edge at El Malecon de Miraflores, take pictures with your loved one at the sculpture of two lovers, or head to the beach for some fun in the Pacific Ocean.
