The district of Pachacamac is around 30 km south of Lima's city center. The Archaeological Complex of Pachacamac isn't located in the district of Pachacamac, but in neighbouring Lurín. Anyhow there are quite a lot of attractions in Pachacamac. The town itself is nice and calm with a typical colonial Plaza de Armas.

Worth a visit is the "First Pisco Museum". And the district of Pachacamac is well known for its "agricultural" eco tourism.

Great places to visit are the "Casa Blanca" or the "Fundo Agricola Marengo", where you are guided through the farms learning all about ecological agriculture in Peru.

Don't miss one of the great restaurants preparing delicious meals made from local grown products. But one of Pachacamac highlights is "Lomas de Lúcumo", one of the unique coastal environments of Peru where low hills in the desert catch incoming coastal fog and support a very unusual ecosystem. Between the months of July to September the hills come to life and show off all their beauty with an amazing variety of flowers. You can do a guided walking tour, enjoy the landscape and listen to the birds. The area is a favourite place for trekking, mountain biking and paragliding.
