Where Are Expats Going To Celebrate The New Year?

Postby pwr144 » Sun Dec 30, 2012 11:35 am

Any good experiences from the past to relate? Any dependable venues? Just looking for decent food and drink and entertainment--and trying not to spend an arm and a leg. Would be interesting to run into someone from the States....I'll be the white guy with the dark haired latina, trying to avoid dancing... the tallest guy in the room.

Yeah, that is what I did, but in my neighborhood in Surco, it seems that everyone had a stockpile of explosives that would put the Soviets to shame.

Truly an amazing display of irresponsible merrymaking!

For the past six years I have generally spent New Year's Eve at a party along the beach in Asia, Puerto Viejo, etc.

Great fun, and for a foreigner, certainly affordable. This year I went to BYOB party that was downright cheap at only S/.30 per person (venue, music, soda, service included, only drawback was that the crazy hour kinda sucked since there were no hired entertainers).

In the Lima area I wouldn't think of spending New Year's Eve anywhere else.

Of course you either need to own or rent a beach house, or know someone who does. Since the wealthy people are all spending time at the beaches from Jan-Mar I guess I've always figured that all the expats do as well..? Maybe not.

So for next year, talk to someone with a beach house and see what fiestas are available :) That's the place to be.
