day trip Lima - nature

Hello,

We will be in Lima next February and are looking at planning a 4-5 day trip outside the city. Our goal is to rest after a busy 10 day trip in Peru, enjoy the sun before returning to our cold Canadian winter.

We are looking for a place that is easy to get to from Lima, with beautiful nature and activities for all family members ( kids ages 11 and 15). We enjoy lush vegetation, waterfalls, rivers and lakes. We love the beach, but it seems like the only beach area that is recommended is Paracas, which does not appeal to us that much.

Any suggestions for an active family vacation ( midto high range budget) ?

Thanks to you all!

Liza

You could drive inland to the area of Canta, Peru. You would see the foothills of the mountains and experience mountain rivers, lots of horses, and good food. Another option Mancora - you would need to fly here, but it's a very popular beach and tourist location. There are places to go deep sea fishing, swimming with sea turtles, or 4-wheeling. Good beaches close to Lima include Punta Hermosa, Santa Anita, Punta Rocas, and Paracas.

What about HUANCAYA AND VILCA, this region is perfect for you.

A bit off the beaten path though haha

Lunahuana is great! The resort there has options for ziplining and white-water rafting. February would be a great time to go there.
