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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Playa Santa Maria del Mar and El Silencio. Appreciate the collections at Museo de Arte de Lima - MALI and Museo Larco. Explore Lima's surroundings by going to Reserva Nacional Lomas de Lachay (in Huaral) and Callao (Fortaleza real felipe & Balneario La Punta). Spend the 25th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of San Isidro, delve into the distant past at Huaca Pucllana, get engrossed in the history at AMANO, Museo Textil Precolombino, and contemplate the long history of Casa de Aliaga.

For photos, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Lima attractions planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. In August in Lima, expect temperatures between 66°F during the day and 60°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
