This area is undergoing a certain amount of regeneration but remains a delightful place to wander around , have a bit of lunch , a coffee and generally soak up the vibe. Side streets holding unusual finds ( best to walk down one main round and back along the other and dip in and out of the side streets). Not... More

Discovered this area by accident and fell in love with it. Some great little museums and many local restaurants. The valley leading to the beach is beautiful. If there were nice hotels in the area we would have moved to stay here instead of Miraflores. Great up and coming neighborhood.

Barranco is one of the up and coming districts in Lima, definitely a destination for any local or tourist, with great art galleries, bars and restaurants. Highly recommend walking on the malecon and have a wonderful view of the ocean (best at 6-7pm to watch the sunset)

You can avoid some of the inner streets but it is a perfect place to spend the evening in one of the many bars or stroll during the day in... More

Very nice place for walking at sunset and drink a beer/Pisco sour (very expensive there though). It is not easy to go there by bus. However, if you ask locals (and understand a little Spanish) you can get around

We spent a day on a walking tour of Barranco. Lots of parks, pubs, small shops, coffee shops, clubs, inexpensive restaurants, narrow alleyways, street merchants, and old, colorful buildings in various states of repair and renovation. An interesting contrast with touristy Miraflores. In Barranco, you feel you are walking with the real people of Lima as they carry on their... More

We walked for two hours in this wonderful neighborhood, from the Plaza Grau where we enjoyed jazz played by young, talented musicians into the winding streets full of early XX century architecture.. The evening was magical, people at restaurants and bars in a friday night's clear night, chatting whike they waited to be seated, with the deep smell of gardenias..... More
