GET­TING THERE

We flew Lan Chile to San­ti­ago, then to Lima in Peru. WHEN IN LIMA…

Watch for the ‘garua’ in Lima. It’s a misty sea fog that tends to blan­ket the city from around May to Oc­to­ber, giv­ing the set­tle­ment an ethe­real, other-worldly qual­ity.

If you’re keen on a spot of shop­ping, head out to Mi­raflo­res district, south of down­town Lima. It boasts a huge shop­ping com­plex that tum­bles down a sheer cliff face to­wards the Pa­cific Ocean.

Sit with one of Lima’s fa­mous pisco sour cock­tails in one of the many bars and watch the paraglid­ers launch them­selves from the cliff top.

The Larco Herrera mu­seum is well worth a visit. It houses some of the best Inca arte­facts in the world.

And for Lima’s equiv­a­lent of Auck­land’s Pon­sonby, head to Bar­ranco and explore the myr­iad restau­rants and bars clus­tered near Puente de los Sus­piros (the Bridge of Sighs).
