  • This district is one of the most modern and best parks in Lima, is out there with Miraflores. It has great attractions for walks.

  • San Isidro and Miraflores are the best neighborhoods in Lima, with tourist attractions, shops, restaurants, cafes and small hiking on foot. Lima is a city with many squares and streets limpíssimas, urban landscapes are worth, and the city is secure.
