I'll be in Peru for just a week, with most of the time spent hiking the Inca Trail and in Cuzco/Sacred Valley. We have a connecting flight that departs at 1AM from Lima, and I have the option of spending a day in Lima, or instead, the extra time in Cuzco and taking a later flight.
So my question is, would it be worth it to take an early AM flight to Lima, drop our bags at the airport and check out the city? Are there some sights that we could take in for the day? Is safety an issue at all for two women traveling- especially when heading back to the airport around 10PM or so?
I haven't done much research on the city, but I know our main objective would be to try some really incredible food while in the country- ceviche, etc. But then we might be able to do this in Cuzco as well?Edited: 07 January 2012, 06:27
