Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Lima is known for parks, historic sites, museums, shopping, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor), take a stroll through Barranco, walk around Circuito Magico Del Agua, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Centro Historico de Lima.

For ratings, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Lima vacation planner .

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airport is Jorge Ch├ívez International Airport. In October in Lima, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 19°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
