Prepare to get dusty as you get out into the desert region. The tour of the museum on site was an added bonus, before we went out to see the archeological site of Pachacamac.

We had a wonderful tour of Pachacamac! The guide gave us a really nice driving tour of the city as well as of the site which gave us a chance to see parts of Lima we would not have otherwise seen. He also suggested the Micro theatre in Barranco which was a highlight for us and we would not have known of otherwise.

This site is well worth the visit, and the tour was of great value because of our knowledgeable guide. He explained not only the site, but also everything we drove by on the way to it. Driving in Peru is not for the faint of heart, so we recommend a tour or, at minimum, a taxi.
It is fascinating to see how the Incan and earlier civilizations adapted to the desert, especially if you have seen stone ruins around Cusco and Machu Picchu. The top of the pyramid is one of the few places in the world you can see desert, lush greenery, freshwater ponds, and the ocean from the same vantage point - and use that sight to build an understanding of why Peru was one of the seats of human civilization.

What a find...this site is still being restored but the location on the hill in amongst favelas with a view out to the ocean is superb. Great guide with a lot of knowledge of the original inhabitants.
