As a culinary travel specialist, this week’s blog, about one of the foodie capitals of the world, makes me really happy! There’s so much to love about Lima, Peru, and food is just one (not-so-small) part of of the experience, but there’s so much more to love!
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 truly encounter it all. 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.
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 palate. Famous chefs primarily own the street carts found in Lima and hold a high standard on the quality of the food they decide to offer.
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.
Native to Peru, Pisco is a light brandy that is created by the winemakers of the nation. 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 palate, have it mixed with ginger ale, splashes of lime juice, and topped with a cherry. This tasty alternative is called the Chilcano.
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 to 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.
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.
As long as you are in Peru, why not check Machu Picchu off of your bucket list? This treasure of Incan engineering and civilization is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Just the adventure of just getting there is worth the price of admission!
