Probably my favorite place to stay in Lima. Miraflores is sort of the tourist hotspot, with the larger hotels and various tour companies operating out of that area– but with that comes high prices, annoying street vendors trying to take advantage of you, and the whole district has a midtown-Manhattan kind of feel. Barranco is a breath of fresh air... More

Nice place not too far from miraflores, you can go to the beach (not so nice) or walk around the neighborhood...there are good places to eat there too...don´t forget to go to the 'ponte dos suspiros'

The Barranco neighborhood is the bohemian district filled with art galleries, shops, and unique restaurants. The Dedalo Market has paintings, sculpture and crafts - as well as cappuccino and sandwitches. Mari Solaris's Las Pallas Artesian Shop sells unique crafts from all over Peru and displays many collectibles. Ms Solari's hairless Peruvian dog is a work of art in itself. The... More

Barranco has lovely sea side area to explore, nice clubs , good neighborhood. Less crowded. Few fine restaurants in this area. Roughly 20 miniutes drive from city centre. Watching the sunset by the sea over the hilltop is truly amazing. The Christ Statue on the hilltop looks great. It's worth visiting Barranco.

This had such a nice chilled out vibe. I enjoyed seeing the local architecture and walked down the street highlighted as having nice houses. The Bridge was under repair when I went but walking under it towards the sea on a lovely day was wonderful. The handy Metrobus stop made access very easy too.

No as noisy and messy as Miraflores, less shopping and more hommy. Beautiful colonial houses and an area with nice restaurants People from everywhere, several museums in a small area, beautiful street with cobblestones!

You must visit this place while staying in Lima, you can see another side of the city. I really liked this place because it was full of beautiful sights and buildings. There is a bridge in the middle of barranco that is part of this tradition that says the first time you cross the bridge, you have to make a... More
