Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your hotel in either Miraflores, San Isidro or Lima Downtown. Make your way to Barranco, Lima’s bohemian suburb which is known for its nightlife. See Barranco’s Central Park, its Municipal Library, and the Bridge of Sighs, a wooden bridge which stretches over the neighborhood.

Next, head over to Chorrillos. Once one of the most exclusive summer resorts in Lima, Chorriolls now boasts an ecological reserve called “Pantanos de Villa.”

After visiting Chorrillos you’ll drive down the South Pacific Coast Highway to Pachacamac, the most important ceremonial site on the Peruvian coast during pre-Inca and Inca times. Pilgrims came to this large complex to pay homage to the creator god Pachacamac. Throughout the centuries the site was occupied by different Andean civilizations including the Lima, the Wari, the Ichma, and finally the Inca Empire. Marvel at the pyramid-shaped temples such as the Aboditos Temple, the Old Temple, the Painted Temple, and the Temple of the Sun. Visit the on-site museum which displays artifacts including pottery, textiles, shell and stone ornaments, and a wooden Pachacamac idol.
