Travelling to the capital of a nation doesn’t need to devastate your wallet. See Peru’s capital and have a great time without going broke.
Start off the day by leaving the hotel and making your way to the Miraflores region of the city. Miraflores is generally upscale dining and retail focused, but one of the restaurants here is the perfect spot to grab something to eat for breakfast. Café de Lima is your stop for breakfast. The most expensive item on the menu will only cost $10.
While you are in Miraflores, head over to Huaca Pucllana. These pre-Incan ruins are perfect for a look at natural history, The museum only costs adults about $5 to get in.
For lunch, you should stay in Miraflores. Take a trip to Barra Maretazo. This restaurant has a wide focus for lunch, ranging from soups and salads to pastas to full plates and combos. You can reasonably expect to eat lunch for less than $25.
After lunch, head north to the Cathedral of Lima. This massive Catholic cathedral houses a gold-plated altar and a religious museum, allowing guests to explore the religious history of the region while also taking in some excellent sights.
Some high-quality Peruvian cuisine is in line for dinner. Take a ride to Isolnia Taberna Peruana. This restaurant has everything you might want from a Peruvian restaurant. Your whole meal will cost less than $30.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with.

Lantern festivals are sweeping the nation. Lanterns originated in China, but made their way across the world. Lantern lights are mesmerizing when they light up the night sky. I always think of the scene in the Disney movie Tangled, where the whole town sends lanterns up to the sky in honor of the missing princess and the entire sky is covered with lanterns. Travel around the world to see the best lantern festivals.
