Pharmacies & Medicine

Lima has a wide network of pharmacies. In case you need one, you find a 'botica' or 'farmacia' literally around every corner. The bigger pharmacies are generally well sorted and offer quite a wide variety of medicine and drugstore articles. Many drugs available elsewhere only with a prescription can very often be bought over the counter, mainly at reasonable prices. Some bigger pharmacies in Lima offer a 24 hours delivery service. Just order by phone and a motorbike courier delivers to your doorstep.

If you need special medication or one specific drug, we would highly recommend taking it with you! At least enough until you find an alternative here – Consult your doctor for substitutes in advance. As you can find a pharmacy nearly everywhere while strolling through town, we won't bother you with several pages long listing of every single pharmacy. To keep things simple, find below only the names, phone numbers and websites of some bigger pharmacies offering deliveries. There are many more equally good pharmacies around.
