  • This Lima Street (AV. Northstar) has some huge markets of souvenirs from Peru. We got into a couple, including the Indian Market and we say that we have not found major differences. It is many small shops selling Peruvian products, some of the same things that are located throughout the country. We are not very convinced, we loved most going into small local markets of the Andes where you can breathe in a completely different atmosphere. They are not food (e.g. chocolate, quinoa ...) but only gifts. Prices are in line with those of markets around the country. Let us jump only if you forgot to buy any thoughts elsewhere. These ATMS everywhere.

  • The collection of stores in this location is a thorough representation of all the “touristy” arts and crafts that exist in Peru. Silver, Cedar, Mahogany and Lleather sculptures and costume jewelry, Alpaca rugs and clothing, carpets, scarves, sweaters, paintings, all decorated in the Peruvian textile colors and designs from the different regions. Bathrooms are available, places to sit, som light snacking available as well.
  • Lots of interesting finds, largely knitted jackets, ponchos, shawls, trinkets, some cool musical instruments and other souvenirs. Lots of personality and some very sweet people.
  • Always go here to buy gifts and also take tourists here to see the variety of crafts. Good discounts!
  • Determine what is tat and what is with buying
  • Place is fairly okay for souvenirs, however, a lot of the same products.

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.
