Day 1 – G Adventure – Amazon to Andes Tour – Explore Lima

The official start of the tour was Monday, June 1st. We had all day to explore the city of Lima on our own before meeting with out tour co-ordinator and fellow tour members that evening.

Lima is a large city divided into many principals, each with their own council and mayor. Our hotel is in the principal of Miraflores, a nice high-end neighbourhood which translates to “look at the flowers”.  We walked the main drag called Jose Larco which has all the major retail and food outlets. If you continue walking down Larco you will come face-to-face with the Pacific Ocean.

It is a great spot to hang out, watch the hang gliders and look admire the view. The boardwalk has all the high-end North American stores i.e. Puma, Nike and coffee shops.

The Green Coast Highway is quite spectacular, hugging the ocean far into the distance – similar to the coasts of southern France.

We made our way back to the crazy city traffic and up to Kennedy Park where if you were a “cat lover” you would be in your glory.  There are hundreds of cats that are healthy and well cared for.

Kennedy Park is where people go to read, hang out, indulge in some snacks, admire the flowers and of course play with the cats.
