  • When tourism invites the rich House. This is San Isidro. None member only in this part of Latin America is extraordinary to have a neighborhood care, signposted and where planning regulations are respected. For me it was not to do a Tour in a zoo of rich! Nothing taste not of the real character of this city of 10 million inhabitants.

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.
