Pachacamac is interesting as it gives a different take on pyramids. However these pyramids aren't very very well preserved and the Peruvian government are making an effort to preserve now. Visitors were only allowed around the pyramids not inside or through pathways, which made the...More

Pachacamac is largely unexcavated, but selected sites are there for the viewing. The signage, in English and Spanish, is skimpy so you really need a guide that can put everything in perspective. This was a holy site for a sequence of civilizations beginning in the...More

This was brilliant and worth the drive out of Lima. I had a Peruvian guide that spoke amazing English and was so knowledgeable about the site. It was so fascinating and was one of the best days I had. Outstanding.

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.
