Lima has it all – a history that dates back centuries, the incredible Andes mountains, access to the Amazon rainforest, plus a contemporary food and art scene that is taking the world by storm. Brightsun Travel has fantastic cheap Lima holidays so that you can go on a spectacular holiday in Latin America this year. Let’s start with Lima’s history. In the city centre you could head to Plaza Mayor, a central plaza, and surround yourself with century old buildings and impressive museums. For one of the city’s best museums you could visit Museo Larco, housed in an 18th century mansion, which boasts a collection of tens of thousands of ceramic works, spanning across centuries. And for an architectural highlight, head to the Iglesia de Santo Domingo, an atmospheric church built in the 16th century. For art lover’s, the Museo de Arte de Lima or MALI is the starting point, then head to the Barranco neighbourhood, where you will find local and international galleries lining its picturesque streets.
Now on to the city’s food scene. Lima is known as a gastronomic hub in Latin America, where you can eat its national dish, ceviche (raw fish marinated in lime, chilli and onions) at street side eateries, and sip its national cocktail, the pisco sour, from decadent bars. Alternatively, head straight to ‘Central’, voted the 4th best restaurant in the world in 2017 by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and experience a culinary adventure, and taste food made from indigenous ingredients from across the country. After your culinary tour of the city, you could head to the ocean side neighbourhood of Cala and enjoy fantastic water views, or head to Miraflores for the best of the city’s parks and gardens. And when you are ready to venture out of the city, you could take a short hour flight to Cuzco to access trains to the incredible Machu Picchu site.
