  • Unlike the tourist or Barranco and Miraflores neighborhoods, El Mercado Central shows the reality of the Peruvian, eating, taking, real prices, lots of fruits and vegetables of different types. You can take a chicha 1 Sun and buy cheap fruit, also there are a variety of cheeses. You can walk to the Plaza de Armas, then San Martín square and then the market this masomenos fencing. There in the Plaza de Armas policemen delivered free maps of downtown.

  • The Marked Central Lima (Surquilo market) can be visited on foot from Miraflores, about 10 minutes after the Kennedy Park. It is simply a market of fruits, vegetables, meat, chicken and fish is not exactly a tourist attraction. Simple, simple people place where it pays to know the local fruits and depending on the time eating ceviche.
