The last time I visited them there was an offer «Night of the libraries» and I took the opportunity to buy several.

  • Nice book store with a good children book section and travel guides in English
  • Incredible independent book store. Great Peruvian and Lima author section. Quiet. Tea.
  • Nice place to read and have a cup of tea (extensive range), coffee with tiny breadsticks (pallitos salados) or biscuits (lengua de gato - cat's tongue). Love the collection of books. Must visit for book lovers.

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. For something truly authentic, look for hotels located in restored mansions, many of which offer pleasant rooms overlooking manicured enclosed gardens, ideal for enjoying romantic meals or hosting small private parties.
