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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Toboganes de Songos and San Isidro. Appreciate the collections at Museo Larco and National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History. Step out of Lima to go to Santa Maria Del Mar and see Playa Santa Maria del Mar, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Huaca Pucllana, explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte de Lima - MALI, take a stroll through Centro Historico de Lima, and admire the local landmark of Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor).

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. In March in Lima, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
