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°F).
Lima is serviced by the Jorge Chavez International Airport, which was chosen as the 2013 South America’s Leading Airport by the World Travel Awards.
