With cheap flights to Lima, you'll be able to experience the wealth, beauty and culture of Peru, in its capital city. A city of about 9 million, it's not only Peru's largest cities, but also one of the largest in all of South America, and never lacking in excellent food, historic sites and interesting attractions. So get your cheap tickets to Lima, and leave the travel planning to us with Flighthub's travel guides!
Be sure to check out the Plaza de Armas, the center of Lima's historical district, and the site of historical buildings and architecture, including the Archbishop's Palace, the Government Palace, a gorgeous bronze fountain from the 1600's and numerous office buildings. Francisco Pizarro actually founded Lima at this exact spot in 1535, and it's still the heart of Lima.
It's like a bit of Vegas in Lima with the Magic Water Circuit show. Much like the Bellagio's water show in Las Vegas, experience not one but 13 different fountains which are strategically timed to 'dance' in tune with all sorts of interesting light and sound displays. With lasers, dances and 13 different fountains, it'll definitely be a show to remember. Check it out at night for a truly awesome experience. Also be sure to check out cheap flights to Lima and hotels in Lima, to start a vacation of a lifetime.
Interested in seeing Incan and pre-Incan ruins? Take a day trip only 20 miles from Lima to visit the Pachacamac, a huge compound built completely out of clay, which dates back to about 200 A.D. The main parts of the compound are definitely the Sun and Moon temples, as well as pyramids. There is an excellent view of the ocean in addition to the impressive, ancient architecture.
Visit a fabulous example of Baroque architecture and pure creepiness when you visit the Church of San Francisco. A gorgeous old yellow church dating back to the 1600's, it's got an excellent museum library with ancient documents from the times of the conquistadors. Most people come to see the crypts under the church though, where Lima's first residents were actually buried-around 75,000 of them. Come to see church architecture and if you're into lots of skeletons, the crypts under the church as well. For airline tickets to Lima, to see the crypts and more, don't forget that Flighthub offers the cheapest flights.
If you're a true history buff then book your cheap flights to Lima and go and visit the Aliaga House, which has housed the Aliaga family since the days of Pizarro. Pizarro actually gave them land next to his house to that they could be neighbors-and they've basically never left. It's a treasure trove of ancient Peruvian artifacts, housewares, furniture, art, architecture and history. For a step back in time to Lima's founding, it's sure to please.
Lima is also well known for its excellent cuisine, with its ceviche and pisco (a sort of grape alcohol,) being absolute staples on the menu here. Be sure to order at least one (and maybe even both,) if you're ambitious. If your interest is in Lima's fresh and delicious local cuisine, be sure to come to its food fair in September, one of the city's largest yearly festivals.
Lima has a huge number of casinos, so if you're a fan of the slot machines, poker, roulette or other casino games, you'll have plenty of places to play. Be sure to bring American Dollars, the only currency that the Lima casinos know.
Book flights to Lima if you're interested in seeing Incan and pre-Incan ruins, playing a little bit of slots or acquainting yourself with Lima's fascinating history. Whether your interest is in fine dining or simply in South American culture, Lima is truly a city with something to offer everyone, even the most discerning traveler.
