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.

  • Testino was a photographer who moved around in high society circles in the western world. There are pictures here of celebrities and a room dedicated to casual pictures of Princess Diana.
  • Great place for a quick cultural date, inexpensive but awe inspiring showcase of the best photography this side of the city.
  • Tiny place but well worth the visit for anyone who loves celebrity and fashion photos ... i didnt realise he discovered Kate Moss
  • Fantastic collection of world renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino. A must-visit in Barranco, Lima.
  • Museum of Testino's work and some other temporary exhibits. Perfect place to stop in when exploring Barranco
