1. Miraflores Malecon + paragliding

Miraflores is one of the most beautiful districts in Lima. It borders the Pacific Ocean with its impressive cliff. Miraflores has a great sidewalk over the cliff which runs through all the district.

If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous go paragliding. Professional guides will glide with you “tandem” style and take the leap of faith to the edge of the cliff. Without you noticing it, you’ll be gliding above the Pacific Ocean. A truly amazing and one in a lifetime experience.

2. Gourmet restaurant + ceviche

Lima has become an emblematic gastronomic capital of the world. The mix of cultures (Japanese, Chinese, German, Spanish, Itualian, etc.) and vast biodiversity (more than 2,000 types of potatoes grow in Peru, for example) have given birth to the “fusion” restaurants.

3. Barranco at night + pisco sour

Barranco is a district that borders Miraflores and also faces the Pacific Ocean. Its a traditionally more “bohemian” style neighborhood filled with painting, music, and acting artists. It is also one of the best destinations in Lima for nightlife. Many bars and discos are available 7 days a week. Try Pisco Sour. The traditional one or one of its variants like the “maracuya-sour” which is mixed with passion fruit.

4. Historical center of Lima

The historical center of Lima was home of the most important Spanish Conquistadors. Now, the center continues to be of major importance. One can visit the Government Palace, home of the Peruvian President, the Archbishop Palace, several Cathedrals (San Francisco and Lady of the Rosary Convent of Santo Domingo), and the Chocolate Museum.

5. Magic Water Circuit

The Magic Water Circuit is justa a few minutes ride away from the historical center of Lima. The circuit lies in the Parque de la Reserva which is great to go by day or at night, but we recommend going by night. During night is when the Water Circuit becomes magical. The flawless mix of water jumping from one place to another and the show of lights, makes the moment magical (Disney-style-magical).
