Rio Rimac, Lima

(1/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
Cascading through the highlands of Huarochiri Province, Rio Rimac plays a huge role as the most important source of drinking water for the capital city and the Callao metropolitan areas. Nicknamed "the talking river," this waterway is part of a Pacific body of water that spans over 160 km (99 mi). In some areas the riverbank is flanked by parks and riverside restaurants where you can stop to take in the view. The surrounding Rimac district is not as popular, known for its rougher inhabitants and uncleanly streets. Put Rio Rimac and other Lima attractions into our Lima itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.
