The 6.3 magnitude earthquake that hit the coast of Peru was centred about 274 kilometres south-southeast of the capital, Lima, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Witnesses said buildings in coastal Lima were shaken by the quake.
It happened shortly after midnight local time (0500GMT) on Monday (30th January).
There have been no reports of deaths or major damage but at least 119 people have been injured.
Most of the injuries happened as people tried to evacuate buildings.
In 2007 the same area suffered an 8.0 magnitude quake that killed more than 500 people and wrecked thousands of homes.
