Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Lima, Peru your home away from home

Lima is on the central western coast of Peru. This bustling capital city has some interesting museums, historical sites and a variety of shops and restaurants. It also has a beach which is best enjoyed between December and April when the coastal fog disappears on sunny days. This fascinating city is mainly Spanish speaking with few people speaking English.

Things to Do in Lima, Peru

Exploring the city sights is the main activity for most people enjoying a holiday rental in Lima. Take a guided tour in English of some of the main sights to get the most out of the city’s amazing history and culture. Shopping is a pleasure along the busy streets with bargains to be had in leather goods and woollen items such as scarves and sweaters. Artists display their paintings along the pavement, which make lovely souvenirs. Eating out in Lima is a real delight for food lovers. Freshly caught seafood is served with delicious creamy sauces and fresh vegetables in the many restaurants which line the streets. Sampling local Peruvian coffee in a local café is another delightful experience to enjoy from your Lima holiday apartment. For relaxation, head for the Costa Verde as the sweep of sandy beaches is known. Sunbathing and swimming in the rather chilly sea can be enjoyed along with crowds of locals.

Places to Visit in Lima, Peru

The main square in Lima is the Plaza de Armas which is centred around a huge 17th century bronze fountain. On each side of the plaza are the city’s most impressive buildings: The splendid baroque Governor’s Palace with uniformed guards; the 1564 Cathedral and adjoining Archbishop’s Palace which still stands after many earthquakes; the Town Hall and the Club de la Union where politicians and professionals gather to dine are all worth a photograph. A guided tour is the best way to appreciate the fine frescoes and the extensive catacombs in the Iglesia de San Francisco, which has some gruesome skeletal remains. Lima has several excellent museums including the Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology in the Plaza Bolivar, with a superb collection of pottery and textiles. The Gold Museum has a private collection of fine artifacts and the Museum of the Inquisition still has its torture chambers and dungeons.

The kitchen has plenty of crockery, cutlery and glassware and the furnishings are all very good quality. The apartment is on the 6th floor with views over Lima bay and the area doesn't suffer as much as Miraflores and Barranco with the mist and fog - It was generally warmer on most days. One thing to note is that there isn't currently a 24 hour concierge, but somebody is present during the day. This wasn't an issue for us. A couple of things need to be pointed out that are not within the control of the owner. * Firstly, there are a lot of street dogs in this area, so you do have to accept a fair amount of dog noise and mess. * Secondly, there can be an incredible amount of noise from the beach in late evenings and during the night. There is a disco on the beach and a group of cars would assemble at least every other night and play really loud music. This happened 3 or 4 times each week and often continued to way past 3am and sometimes onto 6am. We contacted the police (not interested) and Serenazgo (Chorrillos local security), who always told us that others had reported the noise and that they would deal with it, but then often didn't. These two particular issues are CLEARLY OUTSIDE OF THE CONTROL OF THE OWNER but you do need to be aware of this as it did impact our 3 1/2 week vacation. Cracking apartment, had a great time in the apartment, but sleep deprived due to the night time noise from the beach.
