On Southern Lima, the district of "Santiago de Surco", or simply "Surco", has been already populated even before Inca times. Today, it is famous for its many universities (as the "Universidad de Lima"), shopping malls (as "Jockey Plaza", "El Pólo" and "Caminos del Inca"), the "Hipódromo de Monterrico" and the unmissable "Museo del Oro del Peru". It is a rather heterogenous quarter, with many nice residences, parks, squares, schools, restaurants and golf courses. Even the American Embassy is here! But, and there is always a but, due to Lima's permanent traffic congestion, "Santiago de Surco" gets to be quite far from the affluent quarters of "Miraflores", "San Isidro" and "Barranco" - where hotels and main attractions are. Enjoy!

It's a beautiful district, i visited with some friends this district because one friend told me that this district is very interesting, we saw many parks, in addition its safe. in my opinion the most important park is the friendship park where is a big lake to have fun, comparing with other district like miraflores or barranco is not very touristic however i liked to enjoy walking in Surco.

this district takes you to Monterrico, is full of commercial stores, shopping centers and takes you away from the center of Miraflores towards Monterrico. Our dentist was in Caminos del Inca in Surco, so our taxicab driver was able to leave us and pick us up later.
