Pachacamac is largely unexcavated, but selected sites are there for the viewing. The signage, in English and Spanish, is skimpy so you really need a guide that can put everything in perspective. This was a holy site for a sequence of civilizations beginning in the...More

We visited Pachacamac as part of an all-day Lima tour. It was combined with the city tour. I had never heard of this site, and figured, why not. This was a pre-Inca site practically in a desert about 30 minutes’ drive from Lima. It is...More

I took an uber to and from Pachacamac. It was about s/60 from Miraflores. I also got my guide when I arrived, there were several waiting for groups. I think we paid s/25 for a guided tour for 4, which was very reasonable.
