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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lima: Callao (Balneario La Punta & Palomino), Huaral (Complejo Arqueologico de Rupac & Reserva Nacional Lomas de Lachay) and El Canon de Austisha (in Huarochiri). Make the 10th (Tue) an unforgettable day with an extreme tour. And it doesn't end there: admire the local landmark of Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor), get a taste of the local shopping with Shopping Center Larcomar (Centro Comercial Larcomar), take a stroll through Centro Historico de Lima, and contemplate the long history of Huaca Pucllana.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
