Peru’s capital is a very large coastal city divided into several districts, running the gamut from old Incan ruins to beautiful colonial quarters, beautiful beaches, and a heavily-populated metropolitan city center. Lima is full of surprises and contrasts, the perfect destination for travelers looking for an exciting city along with plenty of ancient history. The city is served by Jorge Chavez International Airport, which is an important travel hub for all parts of the country and region.

Founded by the Spanish conquistadors in the early 16th century, Lima has remained the headquarters of Spanish colonial power for many centuries. The beaches of Lima are conveniently close to the city center, and hotels in the area are also plentiful and quite popular among local and international surfing enthusiasts. The city center is also home to a large number of museums and art galleries, including the popular Museo de Historia Natural which contains a large collection of natural history artifacts.

Lima’s historic center is home to a lot of monuments and landmarks that tell the history of this country dating back to several centuries. One of these landmarks is the Plaza de Armas, located right in the center of the historic center.
