When in Lima, you will certainly be spending time in the cebicherias. These afternoons-only restaurants are loud, boisterous, and typically show off the fish they’ve picked up at the market that morning. Places like La Mar and El Mercado are usually only open from 12 – 5 p.m. We happened to get a table at El Mercado on our recent visit to Lima, and devoured several ceviches – one of my favorite was the Ceviche Mixto. Definitely Something You Should Eat™.
Big thanks also to Journeyou for the transportation help around Lima (cabs can be difficult to get and negotiating price is a hassle). For more info: www.journeyou.com
