I have went to Lima before to see my family. The food in Lima Peru tastes amazing so if you are going to Lima you should definitely try the food. Lima has a really interesting culture and if you want to know more about their history you should go to Cusco Peru

If you are a foodie, you definitely want to come to Lima and stay for a bit. There is so much to try, and they do an amazing job with the meals. There is plenty to do in Lima, check out the Circuito Magico del Agua at night and marvel at the fountains. Go to the San Francisco Cathedral and check out all the skulls in the catacombs. And where else can you find a working archaeological site right in the middle of a city? Lima is definitely an interesting city, with lots to do.
