If you are looking for a place to go during the night, this is the place, very safe overall (still don't leave your stuff unattended). It covers blocks and blocks with a huge variety of foods, styles and drinks. I would recommend to consider staying...More

We walked from our hotel in Miraflores to there. The trip took us through a couple of different neighborhoods that were interesting. Once in the district, we were struck by the different feel: much more low-rise buildings, more relaxed and more "arty". Lots of good...More

Drove through on our way to Pachecamac. The Arts section of Lima. Walked around the park by the Brigde if Sighs and the old church, now taken over by vultures. Cool sculptures of vulture heads in the park. Nice old buildings here.

This side of the city is amazing with its natural formations and attractive neighbourhood. You get plenty of information about it on the hop-on hop-off bus. Great for all ages

Many murals on display as well as odd sculptures and designs visible as you walk around. Remember to hold your breath and make a wish as you cross the bridge located on site - as per the myth of the past (look it up). Busy...More
