Travel Tips from people who've been to Lima
If you hate sun, go to Lima! You'll hardly ever see it due to persistent fog, especially in districts near to the sea (exceptions are the months from December to February).
Public transport in Lima sucks. But if you're not in a hurry, a ride with la micro/combi can be an interesting experience (but you should know your destination and the fare).
The good thing about Lima's traffic chaos is that the number of taxis is probably the highest in the world, so that you'll find one anywhere at 3 o'clock in the morning within less than 2 minutes (as with la combi you should know your destination and the approximate fare).
Lima offers a variety of bars and discotheques. My favorites are Mochileros and Sargento Pimienta in Barranco. If you're feeling lonely go to Bierhaus in Barranco or Miraflores (But beware of the bricheras, don't let yourself getting ripped off!)
Well, on the face of it Lima is a rather ugly city, but it has a lot of inner beauty to discover! (for instance the malecón (quay) in Miraflores in the evening)
Not many people used to visit Lima, Peru's capital. Can you imagine what's my best memory in Lima?...it's coke & beef. The Inka coke is yellow (not golden) like Taiwan's Vitali and even very similar they way in your tongue. The beef is well-done and terrific... also in taste. BTW, Lima is supposedly abundant for fresh sea food. Actually later on I really tasted some peruvian food in Los Angeles...well it's really just like asian food. Kinda solution for nostagia if any.
