  • Worth knowing a pre inca pyramid in the middle of the city. Perhaps you'd prefer to meet Huaca Pucclana before has guided tour. The place looks deserted. There is a small room with collection and explanation about los file and then you can go up the ramp the pyramid super to the top, since there is no rooms inside it. It's impressive to see such construction in the middle of town and know that in the 80 's that she happened to be preserved. Luxury taxi to Huaca Pucclana 15 soles. There is a taxi service or cafes nearby. To Miraflores, walk two blocks and take a bus to 1 sole. 6 soles to visit, does not accept card. Take a hat and shoes, there is a lot of dust of the Earth. 30 minutes is enough for the ride.

  • Have a good view of the city, but the site itself doesn't add much. The "Museum" is tiny and doesn't show a lot. If you have free time and near the site, it's worth a stop. If this is not the case, do not need to visit.

  • There aren't any guided tours but the site is compact and we'll laid out. Unlike Huaca Pucllana this site is quite well preserved as the Incas used it after it was built by the Lima people. The attached museum has some lovely specimens. At only 5 soles it's a bargin
  • Great archeological site of the Lima culture. Not enough info at the site.
  • Really worth a visit. Surprised there weren't more people around.
  • Great site at San Isidro
  • Not as impressive as Huaca Pucllana, but still a nice place to see if you have extra time while in Lima. It's a nice oasis among all the new high rise buildings, and you can get a real un-spoiled look into the Huaca and learn about the time period in which it was built
