Pachacama is an area still being discovered. The size of the area is amazing and the uncovered buildings are being left in their original state.

Great introduction to previous cultures in Peru and background of the Incas. Hired local guide and driver who was able to explain in detail regarding local customs.

Pachacamac are amazing ruins very close to Lima. This spot is definitely under-rated and under-advertised. It is easy to get to by uber or cab and the entrance price is incredibly reasonable (s/15 for adults, s/5 for students). I went with family and we hired...More

Walk around and receive impressions of that ancient beatuiful place near Lima. It is a very good location... Mainly if you are not going anywhere else in Peru.

This archeological site is very big. There is a museum which shows the history of the site. There are reconstructed buildings and an old graveyard with bones and all. Nice trip for half a day.

I felt we paid to much for what was offered in the tour. It is a must see. IT may have been the tour guide but I thought it was too much for what we got. We had a private tour.

I took an uber to and from Pachacamac. It was about s/60 from Miraflores. I also got my guide when I arrived, there were several waiting for groups. I think we paid s/25 for a guided tour for 4, which was very reasonable.

I would recommend hiring a tour guide who can provide transportation and a narrative so you know what you're seeing. It's not expensive and definitely worth it.
