1 Huaca Pucllana
A vast pre-Inca adobe pyramid mound in the middle of suburban Miraflores, this is a good place to get your bearings and a taste of ancient Lima.
2 Parque Kennedy
The central park in downtown Lima’s Miraflores district draws locals and tourists alike to its small craft market every evening, and there are some fun cafés and restaurants located along its edges too.
3 Fishermen’s Wharf
At the southern end of Lima’s cliff-hemmed beaches, a small wooden jetty is home to the fishermen of Chorrillos, whose morning catch is landed just in time for the ceviche kiosks next door to prepare inexpensive, but fantastically fresh, fish lunches.
4 Museo Arqueológico Larco Herrera
One of the city’s most unusual museums, and the largest private collection of Peruvian archeology, containing more than 400,000 excellently preserved ancient ceramics, including an extensive erotic section.
5 El Cordano
One of Lima’s last surviving traditional bar/restaurants, bustling with locals.
6 Lima restaurants
Enjoy a lazy lunch in one of Lima’s excellent restaurants – you can’t go wrong with the ceviche served up by seafood specialists, Caplina.
