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!

Peaceful area between Country Cub de Lima Hotel and Iglesia del Pilar area. Several excellent hotels to fit all pockets. The only negative, as you walk around this district and enjoy the beauty of some homes you have to see how most of San Isidro is walled for security reasons. Despite it, San Isidro still is a place to visit... More

the place is very secure and beautifull, a few plazas/parks, and some restaurant, but there's not much to do compared with Miraflores (wihch is also secure and clean).

There arw some jems in San Isidro but its expat central so unless you live here it will be expensive. If you are visiting Lima as a tourist go To Miraflores as that is where everything happens. For am overnight stay choose the airport districts. Of you like walking you can walk to miraflores fron San Isidro in 30 minutes.... More

Very fancy district. Nice to visit if you want to do some serious shopping but a bit boring and quiet at night if you're only for a few days in Lima. In such case best to stay in Miraflores, which is right next to San Isidro but more lively.
