A quiet neighborhood, well maintained by the city, with many green areas. Ideal for living. It is safe and has all kinds of services. But as a tourist, Miraflores has much more to offer.

One of the oldest and nicest areas in Lima, famous for one of their parks (El Olivar). Great to visit and then lots of amenities, shopping and food choices. Safe for tourists as it has 24/7 support from local neighborhood watch and police. Their attention to detail and professional approach are commendable. Their cleanliness and pride in the presentation of... More

Lima is growing and developing, and a good example of how this is being done can be seen in San Isidro, an upscale district where you can see the perfect mix between traditionally, beutifully kept architecture and modern business centers being developed. Safe, clean, and plenty of restaurants and shops, brings a great way to spend the day walking around.... More

We have a special memory for this church because on May 2 2015 we had a wonderful marriage ceremony here. It is not a very old church but is has a magnificent altar.

I may be alone here, but I preferred our stay in San Isidro than Miraflores. It felt safer to me, maybe because of its close location to the embassies.

Unless you live here, work in the financial sector or are a diplomatic, you will probably not have any need to enter this section of Lima.

However, a drive by would... More
