Lima, Peru Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

Lima tends to be an under-appreciated city, tourism-wise, but it’s got a lot to offer, including a climate that is generally pleasant all year round. Hotels tend to be cheap, though at the lowest ranges you’ll get something very basic, and maybe not in the best neighborhood. There are many really nice and affordable hotels in the beachy Miraflores area, which many travelers find to be an ideal location.
