• Nothing will make you appreciate that Lima winter like the Lima summer. Consider yourself warned.

    Right now it’s nice, December is about perfect. January starts to be too hot, and February and March will make you yearn for the clouds to come back.

    Pachacamac is the most important archaeological site, but unless you’re into archaeology I’d skip it for the faster, more restored and more conveniently located Huaca Pucllana. And for more recommendations see my top 10 things to do in Lima (of course, the food is in there!).

      I’m a hot weather guy. 80s is perfectly fine with me. I’m also super sensitive to sunlight and feel a direct correlation between sunlight and my mood.

      That’s a great tip about the Huaca Pucllana. I’ll make sure to check it out. Solid article, too. Will backlink it in a coming article.

  • Good luck brother. As I’ve mentioned, I was a big fan of Bodytech (there’s a handful of them in Lima), and it’s definitely worth the monthly fee if you can get a discount on Groupon like you said.

    As everyone knows, Miraflores and Barranco are legit. I’d imagine you’d get a lot of work done in Lima as well, especially if you can get some work done outside. I’d just be tempted to get the fuck out of there once it hits winter.

      Great insight, Joe. I think I’m going to join SmartFit, as it’s way closer to my apartment than BodyTech.

      And yeah, winter blows pretty much everywhere, and Lima is no different. But I’m happy to report summer is rolling in right now and the sun is shining in Lima today 🙂

      Regarding the last point, let’s hope so. My Spanish was pretty damn good in Colombia, but I haven’t spoken much for a few months.
