Lima

Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Explore Lima's surroundings by going to El Silencio (in Punta Hermosa) and Callao (Balneario La Punta, Nature & Wildlife Tours, & more). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Miraflores, pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco, don't miss a visit to Parque de la Reserva, and ponder the design of Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor).

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Lima itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Jorge Chávez International Airport. In December in Lima, expect temperatures between 75°F during the day and 66°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
