If you’re planning a trip to Peru during June, July, or August – winter in Lima and in the southern hemisphere – you may already know that it’s peak travel season to visit Machu Picchu. During this time, conditions to visit this Inca archaeological site are typically sunny and daytime temperatures warm. But what should you expect during your stay at sea level in Lima?
After visiting Casa Republica last month, it came as no surprise to learn that it had been listed by Travel+Leisure as one of the best places to travel in South America in January.
Casa Republica is the newest boutique hotel in Barranco and has much in its favor. To begin with, the property has an enviable location on the very lovely Avenida Saenz Pena. Dotted with scenic early 20th century mansions, this street draws locals and travelers seeking to experience the romantic atmosphere of Lima’s bohemian enclave by the sea.
Hotel Quinta Miraflores is one of a kind. With a great location in the heart of the city’s trendiest district, this beautiful 4-room boutique hotel is the the perfect place to experience Lima’s enticing mix of new and old. The owner is a pleasure to talk to. And both she and her staff are warm, friendly, and welcoming.
