Lima Expat Guide
What Is Expat Life in Lima Like?
As a developing country with some persistent social and political problems, Peru might at first not seem like the most attractive prospect for expat life, but the capital Lima is a vibrant, cosmopolitan metropolis that is home to nearly 2 million people and accounts for around 30% of the country's GDP.
With increasing international links and a government that is pumping cash into infrastructure and amenities in the capital in order to attract foreign investment, Lima has become a much more viable destination for expats looking to work and live in somewhere exotic and different. A truly historical city with a unique and captivating culture, Lima can prove to be a great place to live for any expat, as long as they are willing to make some adjustments.
The Network for Expats in Lima
Life in Lima can be hectic at times, although the beautiful temples, sweltering year round heat, and richness of the traditional culture can easily make up for this. Aside from the usual homesickness after long distance relocation, the culture shock can hit many expats in Lima pretty hard — so take advantage of the many social, business and activity groups and events on offer in InterNations Lima.
From practical business networking and language exchange (brush up on your Spanish, as English is not as widely spoken in Peru as in many other parts of the world!) to literature clubs, singles nights, karaoke and hiking groups, there is literally something for any new member of InterNations to enjoy, or you can simply unwind in the company of like-minded expats and global minds.
