Encompassing the central section of Peru's coastline, the geographically diverse Lima Region remains a major destination for nature lovers and adventurers. Most Lima Region itineraries include visits to Lomas de Lachay, a national reserve containing a mist-fed ecosystem of varied plant and animal life unique to this part of the world. The region's lush landscapes also provide plenty of room for adrenaline-inducing sports, like whitewater rafting and paragliding. Visitors seeking a quieter holiday in the Lima Region concentrate on exploring the cities of Barranca, Lima, and Huaral--tourist-friendly places offering plenty of urban attractions and enough modern amenities to satisfy the most demanding of tourists.
