After many visits to the Miraflores district, we have found it to be safe and easy to negotiate. Taxis are inexpensive and walking will reveal much about a Lain American city. Get off the main streets and stroll down the residential areas. You never know what little store of restaurant you will come upon.

This is probably the best area of Lima. Many places to shop, eat, and people watch. It is best to hire a local when going shopping. Tell them your price and let your guide go in and buy the item at a local's price not the 1000% markup because of being a tourist. I wanted to buy Adidas sneakers and... More

My wife and I stayed here. There's LOTS to see, every bit of it great, and the choice of restaurants and shopping areas is among the best I've even been to. But expect to see the more affluent side of urban Peru and not too much else.

When you are thinking about going to Lima you hear all sorts of tales about the crime and so on....Miraflores is rated a safe haven and there are certainly security guards and police of various types in evidence everywhere. Its a nice place to walk about and it does feel safe. It lacks the zing of the centre though ......... More

We walked along the hill tops of Miraflores admiring the views of the Pacific Ocean and the Perusian coastline. It is a great walk from the Larcomar shopping plaza to the lighthouse with lots to look at including the magnificent views. Well worth the time to go down there and take a walk

Clean and modern with plenty of great restaurants and little parks. We enjoyed eating at Mango's, a restaurant part of a new mall complex that is built on the edge of the coast.

Miraflores is one of the best neighborhoods in Lima. There are some great areas to walk around, including beach areas and a huge shopping district. Still, things are reasonably priced despite the glamour of the neighborhood.

There is a district plenty of cafes and restaurants and you can also go to the Larcomar Shoping Center and see the sea. Traffic was a bit caotic.
