A day in Lima

There is always something interesting to see and a great way to start the day is waking up to a cup of Peruvian coffee while watching the sunrise.
The weather peculiarity of Lima
One of the first things you might be in awe of is the thick blanket of fog hovering over the city for the majority of the time over the year. This is because of its peculiar position in a valley created by three different rivers near the coast of the Pacific Ocean. The fog does not harm the residents and even is accepted as a part of Peruvian experience. It is one of the features that makes Lima so unique.
No winters! Pleasant temperatures around the clock
When it comes to temperature, Lima enjoys pleasant temperatures all year around. Rarely does the temperature drop below 12 Celsius degrees or spike up over 29 Celsius degrees. This makes choosing the wardrobe to bring with you for a trip to Lima, Peru so much easier. Raincoats are almost never needed in Lima. The city is second only to Cairo as the biggest desert city on Earth and despite being constantly overcast some eight months of the year, there is almost no drop of rain here. The warmest season is between December and April, while the coolest falls from June to October.
Finding a place to live
Accommodations are readily available in Lima, and there are options for all budgets.

Within a short drive of Lima, there are placid, sunbaked surfing villages like Punta Hermosa. The water here is clean, and the waves are huge. Peru is home to some of the best waves known to surfer around the world. There are places for all levels, but the most excellent are at the La Herradura beach.
As you wait to catch a wave, behold for the dolphins who cannot wait to hang out with surfers. No need to be afraid of sharks as shark attacks are all but unheard of in Lima, unlike most of the world's other surfing hubs.
Meeting the local community
Peruvian culture is interestingly diverse. Cuzco natives are very different than the city-dwellers of Lima, while people from Arequipa, the Arequipeños, have a strong sense of community and a strong sense of identity and they consider themselves to be very different and independent from the rest of Peru. The locals here will try to sell you things costlier than it should be, especially in touristy areas like Cuzco, but in most cases, Peruvians are honest people. They are often curious about the hometown of the foreigners, what the culture, national dishes, weather of your home country, and want to know about the places you have been to in Peru. In general, Peruvians are friendly, hospitable, and open-minded: they are usually open for discussions.
How about the food scene?
As the locals are open for conversations, the food opens your tastes and takes you on an exploratory adventure. Peruvian food in Lima is full of great surprises. In fact, 3 Peruvian restaurants are ranked among "The world's 50 best restaurants" in 2017. Lima is known as the gastronomic capital of the world, into a mecca for food aficionados.
First of all, it is very affordable. You can have filling two or three course almuerzo (lunch) with drinks for a couple of U.S dollars. These nutritious and tasty two or three-course set lunches cost about $3 or $4. This particular meal option includes stuffed avocado, rice and mincemeat cooked with raisins and spices. It is accompanied with chichi morada drink, made from purple maize and sweetened with sugar. A fancier meal at a super posh restaurant will set you back 100 dollars or equivalent. Lima is truly the place to have a taste of luxury that you cannot afford elsewhere.
Many restaurants here offer a dozen or more types of the classic ceviche. The famous dish is the national dish of raw fish in spicy lime juice. Don't forget the cold beer with it. Fish in Peru is genuinely succulent, and so are fruits and vegetables. You might find the best mangos and avocados you have ever tasted in your life here.
Lima also provides the best way to cure a hangover, which includes a strong coffee with a chicharron (fried pork) sandwich, with chili sauce, marinated onions, and thick slices of steamed sweet potato.
Got some sol?
While in Lima, you must familiarize yourself with the Peruvian nuevos soles, or sol (PEN). Exchanging money could pose a problem for currencies other than euros and US dollars. The current exchange as of 2017 is 1 sol = 0.308 US dollars.
It is advisable to avoid exchanging money at the airport as the offers are not ideal. Look for a cambista (a money changer) instead. This person wears the vest uniform to demonstrate that they are licensed. Make sure that the cambista stamps their seal (sello) on the bills. This might be helpful in case one of them is counterfeit.
