Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Lima is known for parks, historic sites, museums, shopping, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: ponder the design of Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor), wander the streets of Barranco, take in the waterfront at Miraflores Boardwalk, and walk around Circuito Magico Del Agua.

For other places to visit, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Lima trip planner .

Cuiaba, Brazil to Lima is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Cuiaba to Lima. When traveling from Cuiaba in November, plan for much colder days and slightly colder nights in Lima: temperatures range from 26°C by day to 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Tue) so you can travel to Machu Picchu.
