The city is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín rivers, on the Pacific Ocean coast. Lima is the 5th largest city in Latin America, behind Mexico City, São Paulo, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Spoken language is Peruvian Coastal Spanish.

Lima is in Frommer's list of Top Top Food & Drink Destinations 2012. The city is described as: "Though Lima started out as the richest and most beautiful colonial settlement in the Americas, by the 1980s and '90s it had become one of its most sprawling and disorderly cities. Travelers in a hurry to get to Cusco and Machu Picchu often landed and blitzed right past the capital. But recently this coastal city has been riding a wave of growing fame for its gustatory pleasures. Lima is now drawing a new flock of visitors who travel all the way to Peru just to eat".
