Lima was founded in 1535 and in a short
period of time became the most important
city in the Americas. Today, there are more
than eight million inhabitants, and the city
shelters immigrants from all corners of the
globe, which have transformed it into a mixed
city par excellence.
Come to Lima and discover an
amazing city, melting pot of Peru’s
cultures, faces and flavors and enjoy
its warm hospitality.
Lima is more than a city to rush through on
the way to other destinations in Peru. It is a
city rich in culture and things to do and see.
Here you can tour the museums displaying
the history and anthropology of the past, the
richness of the Inca Empire, the many
regional varieties of the country, plus
enjoyable neighboring beaches and sports.
Night life, full of music of all kinds and lively
bars welcome the traveler amidst various
other types of entertainment designed to
accommodate young and not so young
Budget / estimated expenses
Exchange students coming to live in Lima should consider the following expenses:
US$170 to US$240 per month if living with a local family
US$270 to US$450 if renting an apartment.
US$14.00/day or US$420 per month
Other expenses
Laundry, photocopying, transportation, movies, and similar expenses may amount to US$150 per month.
Incoming students should plan to arrive one week before the beginning of the term. Upon arrival at
Lima’s international airport ESAN recommends to hire a registered taxi (available within the airport
premises). Cost is approximately US$18 to either San Isidro or Miraflores.
Currency and credit cards
The Peruvian currency is the Nuevo Sol. At present (December 2014), the exchange rate may vary from
2.91 to 2.96 soles per 1.00 US dollar. In Peru, US dollars are easiest to exchange although Euros are
also accepted in banks, exchange houses and identified street vendors. Any other currency can be
difficult to change outside of Lima. Bills in lower denominations are more convenient because retailers
may have limited change. The same is true of taxi drivers. Vendors, banks, exchange houses, etc. will
not accept dollar bills that are old or have even the slightest tear.
The Nuevo Sol (S/.) is divided into 100 cents. The currency includes 10, 20 and 50 cent coins and also
1, 2 and 5 sol coins. There are bills in the denomination of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 soles.
The most widely accepted credit card in Peru is Visa. MasterCard and American Express are also
accepted but not so openly.

The electric system of Peru uses 220 volts and 60 cycles. Some four and five star hotels provide 110
volt sockets. It is therefore important to verify the voltage of hair dryer, razors, sound systems, loaders of
batteries of lap tops, video camera recording, etc., before plugging them in. Should it be necessary,
110/220 transformers can be easily purchased.
Telephone service
There are several options available in Lima to make either local, national and international phone calls.
Also cellular phones are extensively used. Phone cards can be purchased in stands and supermarkets
from S/.10 on.
ESAN’s physician is available Monday and Friday afternoons, from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. Exchange students
that require medication for extended periods of time may prefer to bring sufficient amounts of it to last for
the duration of their stay. ESAN will also provide guidance as to clinics and hospitals, should the student
prefer to consult with a private physician.
Eating out
If you enjoy dining out and trying new foods, you are in for a real treat. Peru is known for having some
of the best cuisine in South America. Delicious seafood, powerful spices and abundance of fresh
produce (including 400 different types of potatoes) make this country a food connoisseur's delight! To
search for restaurants in Lima you may want to visit, click here.
Public transportation
Lima has a wide variety of public transport and its cost is rather inexpensive. Traveling by bus or
colectivo may amount to US$40 per month depending on the distances to be traveled. In addition taxi
services are widely offered at very convenient prices.
As a modern city, Lima features shopping centers in almost all its residential areas. They include large
department stores like Ripley and Saga Fallabella, and boutiques of many kinds, plus cinemas, food
courts, bookstores and drugstores.
ESAN was originally founded in July of 1963 as a graduate school of business under the auspices of the
governments of Peru and the United States that entrusted its start up to Stanford University’s Graduate
School of Business. Since then the institution has come long ways, until becoming ESAN University on
July 12, 2003 by Law N° 28021. Throughout these years ESAN has achieved a relevant role in Peru,
based on the quality of its MBA and executive programs, its over five thousand MBA graduates and
80,000 business managers.
Responsible for these achievements is a highly qualified faculty and professional body, entirely devoted
to the institution. ESAN continues to be fully immersed in an internationalization process, maintaining
strategic links with prestigious institutions in the five Continents, and keeping a permanent and
stimulating dialogue with their authorities and members. Through this effort we offer our faculty, students
and alumni, new dimensions of knowledge and opportunities for professional and personal growth.
Our campus, located on the site of an old hacienda-house in the district of Santiago de Surco, surrounded by
hills and green areas and with modern installations, provides the atmosphere required for studying. All working
areas, classrooms, offices and meeting rooms have wireless access to Internet. New state of the art buildings
are being added to accommodate the many new graduate and undergraduate activities.
