Welcome to the city of Kings! Lima is not your obvious gay destination. If you are looking for more than just parties, shopping and sunbathing, come explore Peru, its ancient culture, breathtaking cuisine and fascinating landscapes. Lima is a great 1st stop on your way to the Andes or Iquitos, the Peruvian jungle. The gay scene is relatively small for a city of nearly 10 million but is rapidly changing and has recently enjoyed its first gay pride event! Gay nightlife in Lima does not really start until after midnight. Its bars and clubs are based in the distrito de Linces.
