Parque El Olivar, Lima

4.7
#8 of 69 in Outdoors in Lima
Admire the olive grove and the avian life at Parque El Olivar, a lush oasis in the heart of Lima. The park contains over 1,500 olive trees that still bear fruit, some of them dating from 1560 when Antonio de Rivera brought the first olives from Seville. Reserve a guided tour to learn about the history of the grove, or just take a relaxing walk among the trees and ponds. In addition to its picnic and exercise space, the park is also a haven for birdwatchers. You can spot over thirty species here--plaques distributed around the grounds display information and pictures of the birds.

Where to stay in Lima

One of Peru's most expensive destinations, Lima offers accommodations that range from modern hotel high-rises to family-run guesthouses. Most visitors stay in Barranco, Miraflores, or San Isidro, three of the city's safest and prettiest neighborhoods, which offer a good selection of budget lodgings.
