One of the largest cities in Latin America, the Peruvian capital offers just about everything. You can go paragliding above cliffs overlooking the Pacific coastline, visit Museo Larco to observe pre-Columbian artifacts, spend the day at the beach and enjoy big city nightlife. Often hailed as the world's best food city, Lima is home to three of the world's top 50 restaurants. Once you try the ceviche, ají de gallina and rocoto peppers, you'll understand why. Lima's parks along the"malecón", or pier, provide the perfect place to walk in nature and gaze upon the Pacific Ocean's stunning beauty.
