    If what you want is to enjoy the best of Peruvian cuisine, El Patio del Ekeko is one of the best options in Arequipa. Very good service, exquisite food and nice place.

    Good choice have the card, the only thing that is wrong is that schedules that accept it do not coincide with the visit to the local rush hour. It should be in force throughout the day

    A great find! May be the only high end, Peruvian goods shops in Arequipa (the tourist office did not know of other such places.) Great place to buy gifts for loved ones back home. Very good (and quiet) restaurant on the second floor also.

    Grill restaurant in a shopping center. You get here is great value for money. The Imperial grill is adequate, there is a lot of meat on and all for less than 95 soles vpor 2 people.

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
