Pura Vida Travels - A Guide To Travel In Latin America








Huaca Pucllana is the remains of a temple built by the Lima people between 200 and 400 AD. Up until about 25 years ago it was a vacant lot that was used by the local kids as a dirtbike park. The top of the temple was used by the kids as a soccer field. The Peruvian goverment, however, finally decided that it was worth preserving and began restoring it in 1980. The site itself isn't that interesting to look at but I learned a lot about Lima on the tour. The tour takes about an hour and only costs 7 soles so it's a good way to kill some time and learn something at the same time.
