This is the place to be if your in Peru on business. The HQ offices of a good number of local and international businesses, from mines to banks, are located in San Isidro. Great restaurants (breakfast, lunch, dinner), discos, and a wide selection of hotels. And the gold course.

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.
