Entertaining Things to Do in Lima, Peru

Updated: Apr 18



One of my favorite honeymoons to plan was a meticulously planned three week extravaganza. With the help of one of my trusted travel partners, my couple came back amazed (and with some amazing pictures). One of the cities on their list was Lima.


Lima is the capital and largest city in Peru. With its bustling city life, rich culture, and eye-catching architecture, there's so much to see and do that it could take several vacations to the land to truly encounter it all. The entertainment found within the city's borders surely is a treat to all tourists. Since there's no shortage of things to do and Lima may overwhelm its newcomers, we've narrowed it down to five things that all tourists should experience during their visit.


Street Food Carts


One of the city's most sought-after features is its abundance of street food vendors. The inexpensive street food options are endless and an absolute delight to the palette. Famous chefs primarily own the street carts found in Lima and hold a high standard on the quality of the food they decide to offer.


Primitive Architecture


Large colonial structures with meticulously detailed features are all over the City of Lima. The vibrant golds and rich colors are sure to catch your attention as you walk through the streets and head downtown.


Try Pisco


Native to Peru, Pisco is a light brandy that is created by the winemakers of the nation. The foamy sour drink infused with bitters is one of the most favored by connoisseurs from all over the world. If Pisco is a little too bitter for your palette, have it mixed with ginger ale, splashes of lime juice, and topped with a cherry. This tasty alternative is called the Chilcano.


Explore Boho Barranco


As the country's trendiest and most artistic region, Boho Barranco attracts many sightseers. Sitting atop a ravine, the views from the district seem to go on forever as you wind through the streets to find all the sweet little art galleries, museums, and boutiques to buy souvenirs. Many of the galleries showcase the making of their art forms and let their guests reach into their artistic side by getting hands-on.


Cruise Along the Coastline


Along the coastline, you will find an assortment of entertaining things to do as you cruise aside the water's edge taking in all of its beauty. Enjoy ongoing views from a cliff's edge at El Malecon de Miraflores, take pictures with your loved one at the sculpture of two lovers, or head to the beach for some fun in the Pacific Ocean.
