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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Playa Santa Maria del Mar and Toboganes de Songos. Museum-lovers will get to explore Museo de Arte de Lima - MALI and Museo MATE. Change things up with these side-trips from Lima: Catarata de Antankallo (in Matucana) and El Canon de Austisha (in Huarochiri). Make the 15th (Wed) an unforgettable day with an extreme tour. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through San Isidro, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, see the interesting displays at National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Pedro Church (Iglesia de San Pedro).

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 73°F, and evening lows to 65°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
