About Callao (Lima), Peru

Callao is your port of entry to the glittering, elegant city of Lima, the darling of Peru. Founded by Pizarro and the Conquistadors, the capital city today offers priceless collections ranging from the Museum of Gold to the Museum of Anthropology and Archeology. Pizarro's remains can be found in the Cathedral, built in 1746. From Lima, you can also take a tour to Machu Picchu, the mysterious lost city of the Incas high in the Andes, or to Cuzco, the capital of the Incan Empire.

I found this to be a disappointing port. A 30+ minute shuttle ride drops you off at a modern mall. Stores and look could have been in the US. We didn't do a shore excursion because the price seemed high for what you got. I like ports where you can explore on your own, this one was too difficult.
