Lima, Peru Vacation Packages
Set in a country known for its rainforests, ruins and rainbow mountains, Lima is a vibrant city that promises its own infinite opportunities for adventure. From watching paragliders transcend the cliffsides while trying your hand at surfing, to shopping in the bustling Miraflores district and tasting dishes from some of the world’s best restaurants, Lima is a destination that truly has it all.
For those passing through on their way to the Amazon or Machu Picchu, Lima will entice you to stop and stay a while with its rich culture, temperate climate, sea views and endless activities.

As the third largest and second most populous city in South America, Lima is brimming with things to do in each of its five distinct neighborhoods – artsy and bohemian Barranco, upscale Miraflores, the business district of San Isidro, the Historic Center and the travel hub of Callao. Plaza de Armas is a central point in the city, steps away from stunning palaces, cathedrals and the San Francisco Church and Convent, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From there, travelers can admire colonial architecture, or head to nearby Miraflores to explore miles of park trails and art installations overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
History buffs can learn about Lima through its various museums: see collections of pre-Hispanic objects at the Larco Museum, explore fine art at the MALI or enjoy contemporary pieces at the MATE.
Plus, Lima is accessible to some of the world’s most incredible natural and world wonders. Fly to Cusco to explore Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley and other ancient Incan ruins. Ica, five hours south of Lima by car or bus, is home to Huacachina – a village built around a picturesque oasis, where you can sandboard, race dune buggies and watch the sun set over the desert. Fly to Iquitos in the north, Pucallpa in central Peru or Puerto Maldonado in the south for access to the lush rainforests, abundant wildlife and unique experiences of the Amazon. Or, if the hiking in and around Machu Picchu isn’t enough, travel north to Huaraz for glacial lakes beneath snowcapped Andes vistas.
Whether just passing through Lima or staying awhile, you are unlikely to leave empty-handed. Find high-end retail shops in Larcomar, an outdoor mall overlooking the ocean in the heart of Miraflores. Try your hand at haggling at handcraft markets around the city, which offer everything from alpaca sweaters to pisco. Whether you’re searching for the necessary gear you forgot to pack before heading to the mountains or simply a colorful souvenir to take home, Lima’s shops are sure to offer what you need and more.
Home to top culinary institutes, world-renowned chefs, award-winning restaurants and a lively dining scene on top of it all, it’s no wonder Lima is widely regarded as the unofficial gastronomical capital of South America.
Enjoy the perks of visiting the only South American capital on the coast as you indulge in fresh seafood, whether in the upscale restaurants of Miraflores, at the fishing docks in Chorrillos, or as you sample ceviche – a dish invented in Peru – in local mercados (markets). For foodies looking to splurge on a once-in-a-lifetime meal, you can find Japanese-Peruvian fusion at Maido or indigenous Peruvian ingredients artfully prepared at Central Restaurante, both repeatedly ranked on the top 10 list of World’s Best Restaurants.
Nightlife can also be found in all directions in the city home to the Pisco sour. Dance the night away in Barranco, enjoy the boutique bars in the upscale neighborhood of San Isidro or explore the club scene in Chacarilla.
Delta Vacations flight + hotel packages include round-trip airfare aboard a Delta or Partner Airline flight to Lima’s Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM).
