With nine million people, Lima is home to about a third of Peru's population. It has the country's best nightlife, best shops and best restaurants. In fact, the city has gained a reputation in recent years as a gastronomic powerhouse – part of a creative transformation that is also evident in the arts, architecture and fashion.
For a city in the Tropics, Lima's temperatures are surprisingly moderate and seldom rise above 30 Celsius. The climate is invariably warm and sunny from January to March, and cooler and cloudier the rest of the time. Whenever you visit, rain is unheard of.
International House Lima is conveniently located in the expat and tourist district of Miraflores. The school is opposite a small park and a supermarket, and the area around it is full of restaurants and bars. The beach – about a 10-minute walk away – is a favoured haunt of a small but dedicated local surfing population.
