  • It is a good place to walk and look for things that, in other parts of the city, is expensive, or is not easily found. The downside: there are many people doing the same thing.

  • It is a fun place if you want to buy junk food, not everything is Chinese and there are shops where you can find everything to decorate according to parties who play, Christmas, birthdays, weddings, etc. The restaurants are also very economical. The people are friendly and is recommended if you want to get out of the routine of the Moll. Very picturesque.

Where to stay in Lima

One of Peru's most expensive destinations, Lima offers accommodations that range from modern hotel high-rises to family-run guesthouses. Most visitors stay in Barranco, Miraflores, or San Isidro, three of the city's safest and prettiest neighborhoods, which offer a good selection of budget lodgings.
