    Lima offers many chances for different and funny activities that everyone will enjoy (and will for sure make great photos!). Here's a short list of our recommendations.

    First, the ones that you can do during a visit to Lima's Downtown: First of all, the beautiful and big convent and temple of San Francisco; next, a walk by the Plaza Mayor, full of historic buildings and monuments; then a ride to the Cerro San Cristóbal, from where you will get a privileged, unforgettable panoramic view of the whole city, including sea and ships if the weather is good enough.

    Once you are back, recharge your batteries with a a delicious supper at any of the Chinese-Peruvian restaurants in the "Barrio Chino", the local China Town, a few blocks away from the Plaza Mayor.

    Then, you can go back to the Plaza Mayor and wind down a little while enjoying a relaxing ride on the Calesas Clásicas, before heading to the Magic Water Circuit; you will need to take a taxi, which will charge you something between 6 and 8 soles to take you there.

    You cannot miss visiting the Museo Larco and its famous Erotic Pottery Hall.

    Outside Downtown, try a ride in the Mirabus, at the Kennedy Park (in Miraflores) and a walk by Barranco, the Bohemian district, and of course, having fun at any of Lima beaches. And it's better if you go with a group of friends.
