I have been blessed to spend a New Year celebration in this lovely Port city full of street art. Watching the fire show from a house on the edge of the city with a full view on the bay is still one the best visual experiences I have ever had,
Did a trip on a bus from Santiago. Spent the half day at the beach and other half eating and walking around. Its a weekend getaway town for the locals.
I only had the pleasure of coming here for a day trip but I really enjoyed my time at this city by the sea.
This is a busy major city and seaport and the third largest metropolitan area in Peru. Large port area required a shuttle just to the terminal. We walked around the city and enjoyed the street life and people watching. Nice markets and of course the funicular.
