Long nights in Lima

If you are not one to call it an early night, then you simply must visit Lima. Dance until the early morning in the ‘City of Kings’ and watch a spectacular sunrise.

There is no escaping Cumbia in Lima: once the infectious South American sounds get stuck inside your head, they are hard to shake off. Cumbia, a complex rhythmic tune with just percussion and voice, originated in Colombia. Today’s musicians have given Cumbia their own twist by adding wind instruments and keyboards. Cumbia is hugely popular. Not only in Peru but throughout all of South America.

Lima’s culinary hotspots

Watch this exclusive video (teruglinken naar Hardwell video) and see how Hardwell is inspired by the culinary performance of chef Virgilio Martínez Véliz. His Central Restaurante is considered one of the best restaurants in South America and is featured on numerous international top 5 listings.

Like Central Restaurante, La Rosa Nautica is not cheap but certainly worth a visit. The location at the end of a pier is positively breathtaking. It feels like you are dining in the middle of the ocean.

El Mercado is a traditional Peruvian restaurant. The kitchen serves dishes like Tacu Tacu, a dish with rice, beans and seafood. The soups are also outstanding.
