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.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Dubai or Singapore, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

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.

    InterNations and the Lima Community helped me to learn a lot about Peru and the Peruvian culture -- not to mention Lima's nightlife. ;)
