"When it's Winter here, it's Summer in Lima. Isn't that reason enough to visit this capital city during the holidays? Luckily, there are many more reasons on our list. Let's start with some of the most renowned cuisine in the world. Twelve days of ceviche? No problem! As you stroll the city's historic district you will likely notice beautiful Retablos, popular folk art pieces that depict religious scenes in hand-painted detail. To celebrate like a local, try a Peruvian hot chocolate and its traditional grape brandy, pisco."
