South American Explorers was founded in 1977 and its first clubhouse was created in Lima, Peru. For 25 years, members used the resources in the SAE’s first home in the district of Breña. As the organization’s services expanded the Lima clubhouse also made an upgrade, moving to a more accessible and expansive setting in a charming, traditional Limenan mansion in Miraflores, close to all kinds of restaurants, hotels, internet cafés, and shops. Just like our old place in Breña, our new home is full of charm, friendliness, character, and warmth. Our clubhouse is a center of information: you find tons of guide books – including our owns!!, information sheets about various aspects of traveling (transport, night life, adventure sport, SAE´s top ten of things to do in Lima), members written trip reports, knowledgeable staff, reference maps, a library with some real gems, a collection of the South American Explorers Magazine, wifi access and more!
For our members we are also a home away from home; a place to offload and upload, to share a cup of tea and conversation, catch up with family and friends, read a book... And we rent out rooms to our members on a minimum 14 days basis. Members can store luggage at our clubhouse to ease the travelling, use our mail address as a safe address to receive packages and letters (Important: we recommend that you put your own name followed by our address and leave out SAE and/or Lima Clubhouse in the address when sending something that you want to pick up at the clubhouse in Lima), use the clubhouse as a work or study space and to plan travels. Our Magic Jack phone provides free calls to the US (except Alaska) and Canada.
Check out our weekly events program!! We have weekly events on Wednesdays around 6pm in the Clubhouse and sometimes on other days and outside the clubhouse. Everyone welcome. Participating in our events is a great way to meet people and learn more about the Peruvian culture. You can email us with questions or ideas for events. On Mondays you can join our Spanish classes here at our Clubhouse. From 12pm-1pm we have a beginners class led by Melanie Gomero Pfennig and from 1pm-2pm a strong-intermediate/advanced class with Kathy Mujica from Hispana Idiomas Spanish School. This is a perfect opportunity to practice your Spanish in a relaxed environment, with experienced teachers. It is free for Members, and $5 for Non-members.
The clubhouse is a great place to socialize and network with other expats, travellers and Peruvians. So do come by!
