Near Lima

The hottest ticket near Lima, especially in summertime, are the beach resorts that stretch for kilometers along the coast. The ones to the south are some of the country's best—and most challenging—surfing spots at Punta Hermosa, Punta Negra and famed Cerro Azul. But it doesn't end there. The region is dotted with ancient cities like Pachacámac. Lunahuaná in the Cañete River valley offers lots of canoeing and rafting opportunities. All these destinations make fine day trips from the capital, though all these villages offer lodging for those who want to soak in these more tranquil environs.
