García y García 175, Barranco 15063, Peru

By Mariana Tschudi

Amoramar is by far the chicest spot in the neighborhood. Part of the dining room is open-air, and an art gallery and a florist shop are on-site. The menu is half Peruvian classics and half fusion-y dishes. Their pisco sours with...

By Mariana Tschudi

Lima, Calle Las Begonias 450, San Isidro 15001, Peru
The Westin brand’s first foray into South America was, at least when it opened in 2011, the tallest building in all of Peru. That distinction has since been taken over by the Edificio Banco Continental (BBVA) nearby, but the glass-and-steel...

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...

Pancho Fierro 115, San Isidro 15073, Peru
T’anta is the chain of bistros from the restaurant empire of celebrity chef Gaston Acurio. While you could order the tasting trio of his classic ceviche, calamari, and causa (a cylindrical layered potato salad with spicy seafood filling), which is...

Av. Gral. Salaverry 3103, San Isidro 15076, Peru
Ice cream is cheaper than air conditioning in Lima, and while the city doesn’t boast much of the former, it has the latter in spades. Despite ice cream’s wide availability throughout the city, however, there’s really only one great place for...

Av. Los Conquistadores, San Isidro 15073, Peru
Peruvian designer Mariana Lengua uses leather to create handbags, clutches, wallets, ipad covers, shoes and boots. The pieces are perfect for every day use, with simple and functional design, but still stylish and beautiful. You can sign up to...

Av. Almte. Miguel Grau 1511, Barranco 15063, Peru
MAC - Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Lima - is a small museum, but what it lacks in size, it has in style. There are usually four exhibits in three glass-enclosed areas, with beautiful views of the city and nature surrounding it. To bring the...

Av Mariscal La Mar 770, Miraflores 15074, Peru
With its cozy beach style, La Mar is the perfect spot for a laid-back weekend lunch. Because it’s top chef Gastón Acúrio's cevicheria, a wait is almost guaranteed, but you can try a variety of tragos e piqueos at the bar before you get a table. I...

Jirón Sáenz Peña 204, Barranco 15063, Peru
In recent years, Lima’s dynamic restaurants have drawn visitors from around the globe. But the opening of Hotel B in July 2013 put a stake in the ground for the city’s art scene. The Belle Époque mansion in the bohemian Barranco neighborhood is...

Calle Los Eucaliptos 590, San Isidro Lima 27, Peru
Settle into the clubby atmosphere of wood and leather and sip a perfectly balanced pisco sour—but insist that it be hand-shaken, not made in a blender. Country Club Hotel, Los Eucaliptos 590, San Isidro, 51/(0) 1611-9000. This appeared in the...

Driving along the beautiful Lima coastline recently, our view was accented with this incredible sunset.

Machu Pichu, Peru
This month marks the hundred-year-anniversary of the "re-discovery" of this Inca citadel by Hiram Bingham. Machu Picchu deserves its clichés--'place of a lifetime,' 'bucket-list destination'...'mystical'...'amazing'... Sometimes, it's okay...

Housed in a refurbished building on a four-acre private peninsula, this all-inclusive luxury resort is far more expensive than most hotels on Lake Titicaca, but it’s well worth the splurge. Not only are all of your meals, cocktails, and most...

Puno, Peru
About 2,000 people in the Uros tribe live on large floating islands made of reed in the middle of Lake Titicaca - the highest navigable lake in the world. Each island is controlled by a family with its own mayor. The lovely and gracious people...

Lampa, Peru
While visiting Peru in 2011, my husband and I spent some time with a local guide exploring the lesser-known towns around Lake Titicaca, one of which was the beautiful Lampas. I was struck by Lampas' beauty, not least of which was this splendid...

Plazoleta Nazarenas 223, Cusco 08000, Peru
Like its nearby sister, the Belmond Hotel Monasterio, the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas is a hotel with ancient roots: the onetime private residence-turned-convent—and now turned hotel—has original Inca walls and colonial-era frescoes.

Lake Titicaca
Legend has it that the first Incas, children of the sun, set down on earth at Lake Titicaca, making this a sacred place, the cradle of life itself. Travelers with more than a week to spend in Peru should plan to visit the beautiful...
