The bohemian area of Lima, full of nightlife and fun, in every block you can find a place where to eat or have a beer. Do not miss the Barranco Beer Company, or visiting the Puente de los Suspiros, walking around its little streets take you to old days in Lima. Certainly an interesting one is La Victoria bar, where... More

I liked this area, it's a cross between downtown and MIraflores. Artsy, many more locals, go to the Bridge of Sighs and make a wish before you cross. It will come true if you hold your breath while you walk across. Or so the legend says.

If you like art, cafes, great food, people watching in a funky setting then you'll love Barranco. The seaside resort from the 1800's has gone through a transformation and is the heart of nightlife in Lima. By day it's a bustling town with tremedous charm. My favorite spots: Las Pallas - for carefully chosen folk art visit Mari Solari's beautiful... More

I had 4 hours before my flight so my friends suggested that we have little walk along the shore. Barranco is just perfect place for it. Only the problem was find the parking.

This was a very walkable area. We visited the modern art museum and walked along the beach. Hotel B is in the neighborhood and the art gallery is next door. High quality craft stores are nearby.

A mixture of bohemian and posh neighborhood with a relaxed atmosphere and allegedly the best pisco bars in town. I suggest getting there from Miraflores by the beach and going back through the malecón at sunset, so you can bask in all its glory.

We were staying at Miraflores and opted for a 3-4 hour trip to Barranco. Had a cab drop us off at the public library of Barranco (10-15) minutes and then made our way down south to the Plaza de Armas. After that had a chance to to walk through the Puente de los Suspiros and then had a quick beer... More
