Rio Rimac, Lima

1.0
#7 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Lima
Cascading through the highlands of Huarochiri Province, Rio Rimac plays a huge role as the most important source of drinking water for the capital city and the Callao metropolitan areas. Nicknamed "the talking river," this waterway is part of a Pacific body of water that spans over 160 km (99 mi). In some areas the riverbank is flanked by parks and riverside restaurants where you can stop to take in the view. The surrounding Rimac district is not as popular, known for its rougher inhabitants and uncleanly streets.

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.
