White City

In an area dominated three imposing volcanoes, Arequipa vacations allow visitors to admire well-preserved colonial architecture in a dramatic setting. Although only one-tenth the size of Lima, Peru's second-biggest city bustles with energy and culture to rival the national capital. You'll eat well during your Arequipa holiday, with a wide array of local eateries offering traditional Peruvian dishes in an authentic ambience. The city of around 860,000 people has a long-held reputation for being educated and engaged, with political debates and protests regularly taking place on Arequipa's streets. Add Arequipa and other destinations to your itinerary using our Peru tourist route planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
