Visas are not required for US citizens.

If you are staying in Lima and the area around the coast you wont need Malaria tablets or Yellow Fever shot but you should think about getting your Hep A + B for sure.

In Lima definately check out the area around the PLaza De Armas and San Francisco Catacombs. Also Huacca Pucclanna was pertty interesting. You could take a bus www.cruzdelsur.com.pe down to Paracas and visit the Islas Ballestas or to Ica and go Dune Buggying and Sandboarding at Huacachina or to Naza and fly over the Nazca Lines.

This website will give you some ideas about Lima...

Plaza de Armas

Two great museums: Rafael Larco de Herrera and Pedro de Osma (Barranco). If you like museums you can add others

Night time double decker tour of the colonial center

Magical Water Circuit (you can go without a tour although there are many tours that combine this with a dinner show)
