I see folks are writing on San Isidro, it is in reality, just a living and commercial area, it has in the last 10 years changed with huge high rise buildings, in places blocks out the sun. I am not so keen to visit this area, i know it quite well as over the years on visits passed threw, but... More

Visit this charming community in Lima. It is worth a visit and is very walkable, with interesting architecture and various neighborhood bars and restaurants worth visiting.

This is where our hotel was located. It was a lovely, quiet place to walk around. Although most of the main attractions are not located here, it served as an excellent base for our trip.

This is a beautiful neighbourhood, for me as well, it was near to the locations I had to visit my clients. But the whole area is full with nice stores, good restaurantes apart from being a classy area for the locals to reside. Very much recommended to stay in this area, more than Miraflores that seems noisier.

Beautiful neighborhood. This is how the 1% live. We saw uniformed maids and gatekeepers virtually everywhere as well as one embassy after another. Someone should do a "doors of San Isidro" book because one is lovelier than the next which makes for great neighborhood walking = and gaping.

The poshest neighbourhood in Lima. Particularly around "El Olivar", you'll find big mansions and upscale shops. It's ok for a walk, not to spend time if you're on a tight schedule.

Very nice neighborhood with a lot of luxury and high end stores and restaurants. This is known as the most expensive district in Lima where you find the most lavish and fancy real estate. Really nice and safe to... More

San Isidro is not as some reviews pointed out typical Peru. I purchased an apartment here in San Isidro, because for me, it was the most comfortable area in Lima, also very safe. I am British and for me the area answers all my needs. Fine restaurants, excellent supermarkets, great shops. Unfortunately the one thing I hate about Peru is... More
