We ended our 7 week Ecuador and Peru trip in an apartment in Miraflores and loved our week there. Great restaurants and atmosphere and not too hot in April!

Our family moved to Peru in 2009 and have lived in Miraflores the entire time wonderful, safe part of Lima. The city has beautiful coastlines, shopping areas, private schools, and a great skatepark. There are many serenazgos (like city security guards) all over. It does have some areas that are not as safe but overall it us one of the... More

If you are lucky and your stay is in summer time, you will enjoy the most beatiful sunset you can imagine. It is a safe place, you can walk around, surf, go shopping, whatever you want. Larcomar has some romantic restaurants, nice shops, bars and discos.

Miraflores has always been the trendy area (and fairly safe) part of Lima. You get to see, eat and shop just about anything you want, including (yuck) fast foods. Try Parque Kennedy (Kennedy Park), their mobile stalls have typical food goodies like picarones (Sweet Potatoe donuts). The vendors are certified and inspected so It is fairly safe to eat there.

Three years, three trips to Lima, and three stays in Miraflores. Super food, a variety of shops, nice hotels, and I haven't worried about walking around the area even after dark. Lots of people walking around and plenty of security and police. Haggle at the markets, drink juice and eat a sandwich at one of the walk up joints, enjoy... More

this is the new hip location to be at when you are in Lima. Lots of shopping restaurants and sightseeing to do in this part of the city. Go if you can you wont be disappointed.

I felt very safe in Miraflores compared to other places I visited in Peru. There were many places to eat in all different types of cuisine, the streets were clean and safe, there were security guards everywhere.
