Of course, we won’t live this local market without trying the most representative dish of Lima called “Ceviche”.

There are also other dishes for all tastes such as beef, seafood, even vegan and vegetarian option can be found here. 2. Local Market in Surco: After tasting different samples of food, now we arrive at Santiago de Surco Market, it was very well-known by locals and visitors since the colonial days till now. This will be a good opportunity to try a delicious “Juane” or “Chaufa de Cecina”, typical dishes from the jungle prepared with authentic and organic ingredients from the Amazon. 3. Vineyard Ugarelli: Finally, we will visit a local vineyard located in Surco, which is one of the few that still maintains its customs, traditions and cultural fervor, so it celebrates the Grape Harvest Festival, recognized worldwide as “Vendimia”, the same that has been held in our district since 1938. Ugarelli is dedicated to the production of young dry, semi-dry and sweet wines. On the other hand, the production of Pisco and Macerated wines is almost an obligation for a Peruvian winery. At the end of this amazing and delisious experience we will drop you off to your hotel.
