Free Time Activities in Peru

Updated 1 May 2014

You can find more info in Culture, Peruvian Cultural Centers, and Museums. The latest events can be found in Upcoming Events.

You can meet other expats on the forums about Peru, which you can read about in the article, Virtual Expats. Also, try look at the upcoming events below, where you can meet expats and Peruvians alike. If you like sports or arts, take a look at the clubs below.

One tip to remember is that speaking Spanish will help you greatly. You'll be treated differently than if you speak English all the time, it'll help you assimilate, and you'll be able to communicate easier. If you're looking to learn Spanish, check out Fluenz Spanish, Rosetta Stone, and Synergy Spanish.

Don't forget to check the classified section of El Comercio on Sundays as well. Often teachers advertise there and you can find everything from cooking to sewing to Quechua lessons there. PUCP has free course in Aulas Libres

Country Clubs in Lima
These are usually pretty expensive, such as Club Regates, Club Terrazas, Club Esmeralda, or Country Club Villa. However, it's worth asking around as some are keen to give discounts to foreigners and short-term residents.

Gyms in Lima
Most gyms give discounts if you pay for a couple months at a time. Some gym sites are listed below. You can also find a comparison of some gyms in this thread.
