Miraflores District in Lima, Peru

If you visit Lima, Peru, we would suggest staying in the Miraflores district. Miraflores is an upscale district that sits along the coast of Peru with beautiful beaches, excellent restaurant choices, nice hotels, and it isn’t far from downtown Lima. We visited Lima during one of our trips to South America and it is a truly beautiful area. We took advantage of the time to go down and enjoy the beach as well as go into downtown Lima and see the historic sites.

Obviously, many people make this a destination of its own to enjoy the beaches and take advantage of the festive nightlife. We enjoyed walking down to the beach area and sitting at one of the outdoor restaurant patios. The food of Lima is well known for being some of the best in the world, so we made sure to sample a variety of different dishes. While we were at the beach, we tried the some local sandwiches with fried potatoes, but for dinner we chose to have some fusion food.

In addition to the restaurants, there are also several shopping malls and other stores for those who would like to do some shopping. This is a typical beach resort area where each of the various hotels have restaurants and cafes in addition to those that you can find along the beach itself. Whether looking for a place to sit in the sun, stroll along the beach, go for a swim, Miraflores is a perfect place to visit.

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more: Miraflores is the best place to stay in Lima, unless you only have a day and want to visit the historic center only. In Miraflores, the best is to stay close to Kennedy Park, where all the good things happen.

  2. So funny that you’re writing about Lima this week. In one of my classes we’re reading a novel about Lima’s upper class in 1890 so it’s nice to see it in modern day πŸ™‚

  3. Looks like a beautiful place and that steak and avocado sandwich is making me very hungry! I was in Lima for just a couple of days so I only got to explore around the city centre.
