Lima (Callao)


Cruises To Callao

Arrive in Callao, the chief port of Peru, right outside Lima to a place where fishermen in colourful boats fit right in to the picture alongside our ship. Trading routes of the 16th century saw goods from all over Peru make their way across the Andes (by mule!) to Callao, for ships headed to Spain. Explore more of Callao on a South America cruise!
