This municipality is all about bussines. It's really centric, hence many international forums being held here (ie. UN Climate Summit). There's some green parks and interesting buildings scattered throughout the city, but I wouldn't recommend you waste a day there if you're on a tight schedule.

Was very impressed with this neighborhood. Many of the Embassy's are located there along with some of Lima's top restaurants.

I've always liked san Isidro for the quiet and green spaces as well as its variety of quality restaurants. Easy to navigate and pleasant to be in. Good shopping for those looking for that as well.

The area is financial but also there are some nice restaurants to eat. The access to different areas of Lima is very good.

Clean, calm upper class suburbia, but not representative of the real Peru. Try to get out and explore further afield.

If you choose to stay in nice areas of LIma, which is recommended, either San Isidro or Miraflores should be your choice. Lima 27 is the most special restaurant I was in this area. And of course, TANTA...

Check out the eateries. Try a sidewalk cafe, enjoy Peru's amazingly flavored foods and watch the people go by in this affluent neighborhood!
