Lima is the administrative and traffical center of Peru. All airplanes from abroad come down in Lima - and from Lima there is connections to all part of the country by plane or long-distance bus.
If you are interested in history, then Peru is the land of the Incas - one of the three great civilizations in America from before Columbus. If you are more interested in prehistoric time the Peru has been civilized 4-5000 years, and there remain still ruins of pyramids and religious centers to visit and study.
Cusco, the old capital is build by the Incas, but if you want to go nearer to this mysterious people, then Machu Picchu deep in the mountains is worth a visit. You can only arrive to Machu Picchu by a narrow-gauge railway, as is zigzagging up from Cusco - but you can get off on half-way, at 88 km station and walk 3-4 days up the Inca Trail and reach Machu Picchu.
If you are more interested in nature, there are huge mountains and deep insulated valleys as you can visit, climb up or walk down. Colca Cañon is the deepest canyon in world. Mont Blanc of Europa is around 4800 meter, but that is only the common hight we must over, when we pass through a simple mountain pass in the Andes.
On the other side of the mountains is the upper part of the Amazon basin with unspoilt rainforrest, that is around the half of the total area of Peru. There you only will travel by boat on the rivers - or by plane. There are actually living around 50 etnical tribes there with own language and culture, inclusive the Aymara and Quechua-people som still is talking the largest of the surviving indigenous languages in ALL America.
If it is biodiversity with flowers, orchids or animals of many species that is your interest, then there is a rich reason for a visit - birds of all sizes from Condor and to colibries - insects in immeasurable diversities.
Are you more inetrested in sport, then we have the beaches in North of Peru as are very fine for wavesurf - or you can fly parachute along the cliffs in our own Miraflores.
The borrough of Miraflores, placed just out to the huge Pacific Ocean is the most turist-orientated part of Lima, and Lima is considered as a Gastronomic mecca. We have hundreds of restaurants in Miraflores, as therefor is a perfect startring point for a Gastromic pilgrimage.
A nice place to visit could be the Huaca Pucclana as both is an archaeological ruin in combination with a lovely restaurant.
For comparation, Peru hold 4 times the size of the British Island, so take your time if you want to see it all.
The house is placed in center of Miraflores, as is the most touristic and safe town district in Lima. It is so central located, that it is possible to walk around to the most - shopping centres, museums and galleries, exhibitions, ruins, parks and the hundreds of restaurants - even down to the coast of Pacific Ocean you can walk.
Of the 6 rooms, three hold private toilet with bath and too television - the resting three rooms are sharing two bathrooms with access from the corridor.
All bathrooms are with shower and hot water.
All rooms have wifi.
Our hotel is mostly visited by foreigners from Europa, coming to Peru as tourists or for business - but we have nearly permanent one or two forreign students, as live here while they attend an educational semester here in Lima.
Of this reason we of course have special tariffs for longtime stay.
As family hotel we have common areas as dining room, living room, courtyard and balcony to disposition for smokers, and this signify, that we too can offer space for meetings, conferences, weddings etc - up to around 24 persons up in the roofgarden - and a little less indoor in the daily and dining rooms, what is more actual in the winter.
Painting exhibitions and even concerts we have hold in the central hall.
With 6 rooms only at disposal we need to ask for reservation. Mostly to be sure to receive you.
The best way to do this will be by communicating directly with Dina:
The most important is the expected attival time, so we can be at home to receive you.
We have no fixed check-out, so the rooms are to disposal for the guests until they depart.
Calle Cantuarias 236 - between Av. Larco and La Paz.
