BEST TIME TO VISIT
The best time to visit Lima is during the dry season, mostly between June and August. The weather is especially wet from December to April.
The city is formed by several neighbourhoods. The best way to visit each of them is walking, but to move between them, it’s better to travel by taxi or bus.
Centro in the north, is located south of the Rimac River, and has the central squares like Plaza Mayor and Plaza San Martin, as well has many churches, colonial architecture buildings and shopping streets.
To the south-west is located Pueblo Libre where the Antropological and Larco Herrera Museums are to be found. Further south is Miraflores, a glamorous touristy neighbourhood with fine restaurants, nightclubs and boutique hotels.
