When to fly

Peak season:

Lima’s peak season lasts from June to September. Make sure you book flights to Lima and accommodation well in advance to get the best deal. August is usually the coolest month and can see temperatures fall to 12 degrees Celsius.

During September, Mistura food fair takes place. This is one of Lima’s greatest cultural festivals which takes place over ten days and celebrates the tradition with music, food and dancing. All are welcome to this colourful celebration which holds an important presence in Peru.

Off season:

Summer, between December and April, is the off season. The weather is typically warm, however the high humidity, particularly between January and March, can make this time quite uncomfortable for travellers. March is often the warmest month, with temperatures reaching the 40s. During March and April, Lima is slightly less humid in the afternoons.

Although summer is the off season, this is when many of major fiestas are held, so prices may rise and it is advised to book airline tickets in advance to get cheap flights to Lima. One such festival is Carnaval. Although this is celebrated throughout Peru, Lima is one of the best places to take in all the festivities. There are a variety of free concerts and other cheap events which take place within the city, but perhaps the most well-known element is the traditional carnival water wars.

City overview

While most travellers visit Lima as a stopping point on their way to other Peruvian cities, booking a flight to Lima means experiencing one of the greatest treasures of Peru.

Take a flight to Lima and see a city which was considered one of the wealthiest and most beautiful countries in North and South America. Founded in 1535 by the conquistador Francisco Pizarro, Lima once stood as the centre of power and trade in South America. Lima boasted Baroque and Renaissance churches, palaces, and mansions, and served as the headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition. Today, Lima continues to thrive as Peru’s centre for political and government affairs. Tourists flying to Lima will visit some of the best museums, finest restaurants and nightlife of Peru.

Lima climate

ClimateWarm and humid with little rainfall, Lima’s climate is influenced by the cold offshore Humboldt Current. The city is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on one side and the foothills of the Andes mountain range on the other. Fog can linger in the city even when areas outside Lima are clear and sunny. Lima has two seasons: summer (December to April) and winter (May to November). March is the warmest month with temperatures in the 40s Celsius. Winter is wet and chilly. August is typically the coolest month, and winter temperatures can drop to 12 degrees. January to March is warm and very humid. March to April the humidity lifts a bit in the afternoon and the sun shines through. April to December the city is cloaked in the garua (fog), and it frequently drizzles.

Getting around Lima

Lima’s neighbourhoods are best explored on foot. You’ll want to take a taxi or bus to get between neighbourhoods. The bus routes are cheap and extensive, but can be uncomfortable and crowded. Flag down one of the large micros and combis and ask where they’re going. Many of the vehicles don’t display their destinations. The combis are known for having bad drivers and lots of accidents. The taxis are also cheap, but they aren’t regulated and don’t have meters. They’re designated by a marked plastic sign on the windshield. Make sure you agree on a fare before you get in. If you call ahead for a registered cab, you won’t be able to negotiate the fare. You’ll also want to bring a map, as many drivers are new to the area. You’re better off not driving your own car – the roads are in poor condition and local drivers are aggressive. If you are driving, make sure you carry your documents. The police and military make routine spot checks.

How to get to the city from the airport

Taxis can be found outside the international flights terminal. Buses and minibuses also service the city centre, but their stops are outside the airport gates on Avenida Faucett.
