About Lima

Lima is the capital city of Peru. Strongly influenced by European, Andean, African, and Asian culture, Lima is a melting pot of cultures due to colonization, immigration, and indigenous influences. Lima has developed a tourism industry characterized by its historic center, archaeological sites, nightlife, museums, art galleries, festivals, and traditions. The historic center of Lima was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Also, Lima's beaches are very popular during the summer.

The city’s international cuisine has made Lima known as the gastronomical capital of the Americas. In fact, in 2013 Peru was named South America’s leading culinary destination by the World Travel Awards and visitors to Lima can enjoy its diversity and richness.

Summer in Lima lasts from December to April. Conditions are hot and dry, making these the prime months for enjoying the beach. Winter spans from May through November. Temperatures drop slightly and overcast skies envelop the seaside districts of town.

There's rarely any precipitation in Lima, no matter the season. Lima’s average maximum temperature is 27°C (81°F) and minimum temperature is 14°C (57°C).

Travel Safety Tips

When traveling, as in any major city, take certain precautions whether you are traveling or exploring the city. Here are some general tips to help make the most of your trip:

  • Lock up your valuables. Hotels provide safety deposit boxes in their rooms. It’s recommended that jewelry, airline tickets, money, and any important documents be stored in the hotel safe.
  • Remember your adapters. Lima has 220 Volts and 60 Hertz. Many hotels, including the Swissotel, offer outlets for 110-volt appliances and will be clearly marked.
  • Try not to use mobile telephones in the street and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Keep cameras and video recorders out of plain sight. Avoid wearing excessive jewelry, carrying any valuables, or large amounts of cash.
  • Use credit cards where possible. Your wallet should contain your ID, credit cards, and a minimum amount of cash.
  • Withdraw cash from ATMs that are inside your hotel, banks or commercial centers.
  • Notify hotel management as soon as possible in the event of a lost or stolen room key card.
  • Travel in a group and plan your itinerary before leaving the hotel to ensure you make your destination smoothly. If you get lost, call a taxi to take you to your destination. Your hotel can recommend a reputable taxi company.
  • Keep an eye on your luggage.
  • Exchange currency in shops or at the hotel’s front desk.
  • Pack casual light clothes. In April summer comes to an end and winter is almost around the corner and the temperatures will range from 61°F (16°C) to 77°F (25°C).
  • Bring a light jacket or sweater because some buildings and restaurants can be a little cool with the air conditioner.
  • Tip extra if you want to. Restaurants and hotel tips are 10–15%.
