Day 1

Land in Lima

You land in Lima today, usually in late afternoon or evening. We love Peru's capital, but unless you can dedicate a couple of nights to explore it properly, it makes no sense to battle through traffic into the centre then turn straight around in the morning. Staying at the airport helps take the edge off after a long flight and puts you in prime position to fly to the jungle tomorrow.

Choose how to explore

Watch parrots flock to the clay lick
