Avenida Miguel Grau 369, Barranco 15063, Peru

By Mariana Tschudi

Everyone in Lima knows Canta Rana—some consider it the best cevicheria in the city. The owners’ son has a spot in the main market called Canta Ranita where the ceviche is just as good, and even though it’s a stall, the place has...

Antigua Panamericana Sur 31.5, Lurín LIMA 16, Peru
The hills and coast around Lima can seem almost lunar--the climate is arid, despite the 'garúa,' the low-lying but rain-less clouds that hang around this part of Perú for about half the year. But the desert is archaeologically rich. Lima itself is...

Bajada de Baños 342, Barranco 15063, Peru

By Mariana Tschudi

This square is surrounded by old Spanish buildings. Artisans’ fairs take place here, and weekend food stalls pop up. I like to buy picarones con miel, a dessert made of fried dough, usually containing sweet potato or squash,...

Mari Solari is one of the foremost authorities on native folk art. She has the most amazing showroom. It’s part shop, part museum. If you’re lucky, she will show you some of her private collection. Jr. Cajamarca 212, 51/(0)...

Jirón de la Unión 224, Cercado de Lima Lima 1, Peru
You need to make an appointment to visit, but cannot leave Lima without seeing this stunning historic home near Lima's main square. What is most astonishing is that the home has been in the same family since 1535, when Francisco Pizarro founded...

Jirón Lampa, Cercado de Lima 15001, Peru
Beautiful monastery in central Lima. Catacombs underneath. Tours given in English daily throughout the church and catacombs.

Jirón Carabaya, Cercado de Lima 15001, Peru
Starting at the Plaza de Armas, walk northwest on Conde de Superunda to Camaná. The Iglesia de Santo Domingo lies on the corner. Don’t let the pretty pastel décor fool you: this Lima church houses (and displays) the skulls of San Martín and Santa...

I arrive in style at Pescados Capitales and although it’s 2:00 in the afternoon the place is packed (I know, it’s just us dorky Americans who eat lunch at noon). Selecting a restaurant in the foodie capital of a foodie country wasn’t easy: there...
