48 hours in Lima according to National Geographic Traveler

National Geographic Traveler echoes our sentiments on our favorite South American capital – Aracari’s home base of Lima, Peru.

No one knows Lima like we do. We live and breathe the city day in and day out. Just ask us for additional to do’s, or “Aracari’s musts” as we call them. We recommend a minimum of 48 hours to soak in the sights, sounds and flavors of Lima.

Get historic. Eat well. Surf. Just some of the top to-dos in Peru’s capital.

“The city of eight million-plus has finally emerged from the shadow of other South American metropolises like Buenos Aires thanks to a surge of investment and national pride.”
