Lima, the capital of Peru, is situated on the west coast of the southern Pacific Ocean, along the outlet of the Rímac River. Lima is full of fascinating contrasts between traditional and modern influences. The traditional influences evolved from Peru's history as the home of the Inca and numerous other civilized cultures, dating back as far as 2000 BC. Indigenous cultural traditions and languages still thrive today in Peru.
However, Lima is not only a traditional place, but has moved with the pace of modernity and now boasts strong industries and contemporary technologies in Latin America. Lima is known for its interesting museums, colonial churches, vibrant cafe scene (try the famous Pisco sour), striking architecture and genuinely friendly people. In addition, it is the hub of transport to Peru's endless natural treasures and archeological gems. South of the Capital, long white beaches stretch along the Pacific Ocean and are backed by white sand dunes.
Lima's importance as the capital city of Peru and its idyllic location along the southern Pacific coast, provide an exceptional study abroad site for students to improve their Spanish language and learn about Peruvian culture. Choose from three incredible universities, with a multitude of course offerings in Spanish and English. Go to school with other Spanish speaking international students or take classes with local Peruvians.
