Have Fun

For most visitors Lima is just an unavoidable must on their way to other treasures Peru offers. The capital of Peru is notorious for its uncontrolled grown urban extent, air pollution, chaotic traffic with reckless drivers and no real public transportation system, crime and few green spaces. But this view of Lima isn't really fair. Lima dominates the political, economical and cultural life of the country and accommodates Peruvians and foreigners from different social and cultural backgrounds. Therefore Lima has an amazing cosmopolitan atmosphere. In the last few years Lima's authorities and inhabitants stopped the deterioration of the capital and spruced up Lima's image.

Today you find beautiful parks and green areas, some nice places for kids, good companies showing you Lima's past and present, excellent cafes, bars and discotheques, a unique music scene and many other things for all age groups that let you view Lima in a different light. Exploring Lima and discovering its bloom (and ugly) side is an exciting and unforgettable experience you shouldn't miss. Have fun!
