Around 21km from Barranco, though easily reachable by Uber. The museum is amazing, explains everything in English clearly. The site is a bit of a walk, but worth it.

Apart from the excellent museum in the archaeological complex, I was not impressed by Pachacamac at all. I'm a fan of archaeology and history but visiting this place disappointed me. For instance, graffiti are everywhere. Some of the important temples are fenced-off and closed to...More

I took an uber to and from Pachacamac. It was about s/60 from Miraflores. I also got my guide when I arrived, there were several waiting for groups. I think we paid s/25 for a guided tour for 4, which was very reasonable.
