Trip Itinerary


Day 1  §  Lima
Lima City & Museum Tour

Enjoy a private guided tour offering the best of colonial Lima. You will drive to the Plaza de Armas, the newly refurbished main square, where you will appreciate the majestic colonial architecture. You can see the Government Palace where Francisco Pizarro took up residence in 1538 and the cathedral/museum that houses Pizarro's remains. You may also visit the Archbishop's Palace with its beautiful balconies, the catacombs and library of the San Francisco Church and Monastery, and Plaza San Marin. Finally, you might also opt to visit the Gold Museum or the Larco Herrera Museum, which has 45,000 pieces, mainly pottery, that were excavated by Peruvian archaeologist Rafael Larco Hoyle. Return to your hotel, and the rest of the day is at your leisure.

Isla Palomino excursion from Lima

Your island tour begins with a transfer from your Lima hotel to La Punta, a beautiful neighborhood in Callao. From here, you board a boat for a 45-minute cruise around the Island of San Lorenzo to the Isla Palomino, where there are hundreds of sea lions. Some of the sea lions will be swimming near the island, some will be lying on the rocks bathing in the sun, and others will be playing near the boat. The boat stops for you to look at them, and you will also have the chance to put on wetsuits and go into the sea to swim and play with them for about an hour (weather permitting). You may see hundreds of sea gulls, pelicans, and other species of birds on the other side of the island. On the way back, you can relax and enjoy some drinks and snacks onboard. The service is excellent on this fun and exciting cruise.
