7.5 hour layover in lima

What to do in Lima with a 7.5 hour layover? Arriving 845 am then leaving 420 pm.

If you want to visit some tourist-y places, you can go to a Huaca (archaeological site), then eat some typical food at a restaurant, and finally go back to the airport.

A couple days ago I took a friend around for those things. We did Huaca Pucllana in Miraflores, entrance was 12 soles and they have guided tours in English. Tour takes an hour and they open at 9am. After that, I took him to a 'restaurant' in Miraflores Central Park called La Republica, which has typical food and is not that expensive. You may be able to fit those two

What about Museo Larco?

If this is your first time, Centro de Lima will be a good intro to the city. History, sightseeing, cheap restaurants, some shopping, people watching...it has it all (pretty much), just be careful with pickpocketers. If not your first time, head to Miraflores. To the recommendation made by joseantonior, add Larcomar and the vecinity.

Lastly, keep an eye out on traffic. I would recommend you take cab/Uber back to Lim by 130pm for a 420 departure. Safe travels!
