Underwater restaurant in Lima?

Postby woodchuck » Wed Mar 20, 2019 9:41 am

Do you think Lima will ever have an underwater restaurant?
Certainly, a creative option to consider for investors, especially when lodging is an option to generate more income.

Just wait for the next sunami...


I've heard that the water is murky here, thanks to high amounts of plancton (great for fish, though), so the view might be kind of dismal.

But on the other hand, there are all kinds of other new touristic offers popping up that take advantage of clear views in the mountains. Here are two new ones: Hot air ballooning in Cusco: http://www.incaroyalty.com/?id=58, and glass hotels perched on cliffsides http://naturavive.com/web/skylodge-adventure-suites/

Cusco? At 11,000 ft? Wonder if they though that through.

I dunno, man.
Eating ceviche while the fish swim around you just doesn't seem right.

As mentioned by Alan, the Peru Ocean is very rich with murky waters

Personally, I do not like the idea of eating ceviche or anything else in a hole in the Ocean surrounded by glasses. I prefer a beautiful natural ocean view with the relaxing sound of the waves

Everyone has their own personal preferences.
With the super competitiveness of restaurants, an underwater place would have a tremendous advantage plus the option of lodging makes this a possible good investment.

As a scuba diver I can tell you that the visibility is about 3-4 meters on a GOOD day. I've been down when I had less than a meter of visibility.

What causes the water to be so murky?
Thanks.

Sediments and nutrients. The cool water from the Humbolt current is great for plankton and other tiny sea creatures. It is what makes the fishing industry so strong here.
