  • Nothing of Larcomar or centre of Lima, the best place for purchasing articles and souvenirs is Indian or Inca market, located on Calle Petit Thouars in Miraflores. The service is super friendly and there's that pressure from the fair traders offering products and calling tourists. The first sale in the morning is followed by a sign of the cross made by the seller, to invoke good deals for the day begins. Pottery, jewelry, rugs, paintings, ponchos, shoes, chuyos (Peruvian Beanies), everything can be found in this space the unbelievable prices. I just thought the lack of a place for snacks and some stores don't take credit cards.
