Tucked into the hills and valleys of the Lurin, Rimac, and Chillon Rivers, you can find Lima, the capital of Peru. The beautiful land speckled with ancient buildings interspersed with modern buildings and palm trees is unlike any other. The city was founded by Francisco Pizzaro in 1535, where he became the governor until 1541 when he was assassinated. Plagued by pirates, privateers, and earthquakes, the city has withstood the test of time and has flourished into a busy hub for Peruvians as well as the tourists who enjoy visiting the area.
Even though Lima is located in the desert as well as the tropics, the city enjoys excellent weather year-round. The temperatures range from 54 degrees to 84 degrees all year, but it is easily affected by El Niño changes. However, you will not see any rain or snow in Lima. What you will see is plenty of sunshine to enjoy the many beaches, parks, and other outdoor activities offered in the city.
Sports are also important in Lima, including basketball, volleyball, golf, and football, which is the most popular. In fact, the city has five professional football teams. However, Peruvian football is the same as American soccer. Another activity that Peruvians enjoy is surfing. They use a vessel made from woven reeds that Peruvian anglers have been using over 3,000 years for fishing. It looks like an upside-down boat or a handmade surfboard with a pointy end that turns up like a banana. You really should try this while you are in town. If not, at least go to the beach and watch the locals do it and bring your camera.
Don’t let your bags slow you down. You came all this way, so get out there and have some fun without dragging your luggage around with you. Bounce has locations in town near tourist attractions and transportation hubs where you can store your things for safekeeping. All you have to do is download the Bounce app, find the nearest location, and book a spot.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
