LIMA & THE NORTHERN BEACHES

A mix of international influence and historic colonial buildings make the capital city a good base to begin a luxury holiday to Peru.

In recent years, Lima has become highly regarded within gastronomical circles, with no less than 3 of the best restaurants in the world located here – ‘Central’, ‘Astrid y Gaston’ and ‘Maido’. In addition to this, the city hosts a number of other restaurants offering the best of what Peru has to offer, giving visitors the chance to try classics such as ceviche, lomo saltado, anticuchos and even cuy (guinea pig). Aside from the delicious food and drink, Lima has an impressive colonial history, the highest concentration of  museums in Peru and two popular coastal suburbs; Miraflores and Barranco. These two charming areas enjoy wonderful views across the ocean thanks to their cliff-top location, and it’s not unusual to see groups of para-gliders enjoying the currents that are created. A modern and very trendy entertainment area, along with a pleasant walkway along the coastline, offers visitors shops, bars and restaurants. If you would like to end (or indeed, begin) your holiday with some beach time – look no further than the Peruvian coastline north of Lima. With a very laid back, surfing way of life these beaches are home to some stunning properties which are ideal for relaxing and romance. Here, the dry climate ensures hot, sunny weather and there are plenty of activity options including kayaking, paddle-boarding, turtle and dolphin spotting, surf lessons and beach buggy rides. There are small, relaxed restaurants and cafes which serve fresh seafood, plenty of beach bars and it’s not unusual to see locals selling fresh strawberries in the street.
