Lima is a very diverse cosmopolitan city full of ancient history, but also very modern. It is an amazing melting pot of different Peruvian and international cultures and traditions. The tremendous variety of shopping facilities the capital of Peru offers will amaze you. I can assure it will cater nearly all tastes and preferences.

You can shop on traditional fruit and veggie markets or in modern supermarkets. For clothes you have the choice between many fancy boutiques, department stores, street markets and everything in between. We can find unique Peruvian craftsmanship and cheap souvenirs in exclusive shops or on Lima's crafts markets. Western-style shopping malls are contrastive to the "Peruvian Way of Shopping". Lima is a great place for all your shopping needs and wishes. So enjoy your shopping experiences, either the modern or the traditional way.
