Lima Tourism Information
     
Overview
Peru’s capital, Lima, is a vibrant city whose grandeur may be faded but still lives on. Once the heart of Spain’s South American empire, modern Lima is a huge metropolis crammed with culture, and a history that pre-dates the Incas.

Halfway along Peru’s desert coastline, Lima lies between the Pacific Ocean and the foothills of the Andes. The historic center, with its Spanish colonial mansions graced by latticed wooden balconies, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lima has beautiful churches, museums, pretty  seaside suburbs and a few remaining  Inca ruins. It is also a gateway to the marvels of Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and the Amazon jungle.

As Peru’s economic powerhouse, Lima is home to around one third of the country’s people. Even in the richest districts, signs of poverty are never far away. Shantytowns continue to grow around Lima, while the upper classes have mostly moved to seaside suburbs like Miraflores and San Isidro. With their skyscrapers and international banks, these are now the main business centers, with nearby Barranco a hub for nightlife.

The city was founded by Francisco Pizarro the Conquistador who seized the land of the Incas for Spain in 1535. As the center of a Spanish viceroyalty that spanned Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Chile, Lima was the most important South American capital until the 19th century. A great deal of Andean silver passed through Lima en route to Spain, and some of it funded the colonial mansions and baroque churches whose altars still gleam with the rich metal.

The climate from May until November can be dismal, as a grey sea mist or garua (known as the ‘belly of the donkey’) dominates the skies. The summer months, the best time to visit, are blessed with a hazy heat. Limeños, as the locals are called,head to the beach for the weekend, to enjoy sun, sea and ceviche (raw fish marinated in lime juice), washed down with a pisco sour, the potent Peruvian cocktail.

Getting there & away
by bus
Lima has no central bus terminal. Each company runs its own office and station, many of which cluster around Javier Prado Este in La Victoria. Others are found in central Lima several blocks east of Plaza Grau, just north of Av Grau and south of 28 de Julio, on both sides of Paseo de la República. Make sure you verify which station your bus departs from when buying tickets. There are countless companies to choose from, so look carefully at the quality of the bus before deciding.
Major companies include the following:
Cruz del Sur (www.cruzdelsur.com.pe); central Lima (431-5125; Quilca 531); La Victoria (225-6163/5748; Javier Prado Este 1109) Reliable, but doesn’t have as frequent services or extensive routes as some other companies.
Ormeño (www.grupo-ormeno.com) central Lima (427-5679; Carlos Zavala Loayza 177); La Victoria (472-1710; Javier Prado Este 1059) Quality of service varies wildly. Has the most international services, including to Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Caracas, La Paz, Quito and Santiago.
Also in central Lima:
Civa (332-5236/526; www.civa.com.pe; cnr 28 de Julio & Paseo de la República 575)
Cromotex (424-7575; Paseo de República 659-665)
Expreso Molina (428-0617; Ayacucho 1141-1145)
Flores (424-3278; cnr Paseo de la República & 28 de Julio)
Ittsa (423-5232; Paseo de la República 809)
Linea (424-0836; José Galvez 999A)
Móvil Tours (332-0004; Paseo de la República 749)
Soyuz (226-1515; Mexico 333 at Paseo de la República)
Tepsa (470-6666; www.tepsa.com.pe; Javier Prado Oeste 1091)
Transportes Atahualpa (427-7324/7338; Sandía 266)
By Air
Lima’s Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Chávez (LIM; 517-3100; www.lap.com.pe) is in Callao. Departure taxes (payable in dollars or nuevos soles, cash only) are US$28.10 for international and US$6.05 for domestic flights.
Many international airlines have offices in Lima – check under ‘Lineas Áreas’ in the yellow pages. Airlines offering domestic flights include the following:
Aero Condor Perú (614-6014; Juan de Arona 781, San Isidro)
LAN (213-8200; José Pardo 513, Miraflores)
LC Busre (619-1313; Los Tulipones 218, Lince)
Star Peru (705-9000; José Pardo 269, Miraflores)
TACA (511-8222; Espinar 331, San Isidro)
Be aware that flight schedules and ticket prices change frequently. Getting flight information, buying tickets and reconfirming flights are best done at airline offices (or a reputable travel agency) rather than at the airport counters.
The official ISIC office is InteJ (247-3230; www.intej.org; San Martín 240, Barranco), which organizes student airfares and can change dates for flights booked through student/youth travel agencies. Fertur Peru (427-1958; Junín 211, central Lima; 9am-7pm Mon-Sat) is also good for student airfares.
