Lima, Peruvian's capital, is situated 130 miles (209 kilometers) to the west of Chorrillos.
When it comes to getting the best from your holiday, it's worth remembering that Chorrillos is just the beginning; Lima is dotted with fabulous things to see and do. If you are after more things to see and do, head to the Huancayo Cathedral and Plaza Constitucion in and around Huancayo, which is roughly 3 miles (5 kilometers) to the northeast of Chorrillos.
If you ask a local for their must-see places around Chorrillos, they'll often suggest Lima 's fabulous open-air exhibits, farms and gardens. Step back in time while you are learning about Lima. Take a trip to one of the old towns for which this part of the world is known.
When the weather is fine, head to the area's waterways for a day of fishing or swimming. Don't leave this region without getting a bird's-eye view. There are a number of great places to try paragliding.
Authentic traveling involves so much more than simply seeing the sights, it's also about the words, stories and ideas of a region. Your stay in Lima will become all the more rewarding if you make the effort to practice some everyday words and phrases in Spanish. An example of a hand local sentence is "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" (Would you like to dance with me?). Another useful sentence is "Este caballero pagará por todo" (This gentleman will pay for everything).
When your time is up in Chorrillos, say goodbye the way they do in Spanish, with a heartfelt "Adiós."
