Combine a Trip to Lima with the Galapagos

Once a quick stopover on the way to Machu Picchu, Lima has become the gateway to another popular South American destination, the Galápagos Islands. But don’t rush to see blue-footed boobies when you can visit this tantalizing coastal capital. Spend a few days touring UNESCO World Heritage colonial architecture and pre-Columbian treasures housed in an 18th-century mansion. Then it’s on to ceviche and pisco sours in a world-class culinary scene, followed by live Afro-Peruvian music at one of many peñas (clubs) in the hillside neighborhood of Barranco or near the sea in Miraflores.
