In the magical capital city of Lima, colonial neighborhoods compete with shining high-rises and ancient, pre-Colombian temple pyramids, all perched across a rocky cliffside eveloped in a morning fog from the ocean below. Honeymooners lucky enough to explore it will discover sandy beaches, vibrant nightlife and gastronomy, stunning architecture hundreds of years old, and enough museums to satisfy even the most seasoned culture, art, and history buffs.
In fact, the entire city is practically a museum unto itself, with a rich history that stimulates the mind and tantalizes the senses. For adventurous couples, Lima is also the perfect starting point for treks across Machu Picchu, hikes through the hilly rainforest jungles, escapes through the Andes mountains, and cruises across exciting seas and enchanting rivers.
Buy fresh fruit from a street merchant and munch away as street performers vie for your attention. Dress to the nines for a night of fine seafood before an opera, orchestra, dance, or play performance at Lima's Grand National Theater.
