This is the artsy district in Lima. Tons of museums and private galleries. Also a great place to listen Peruvian Criollo music. Visit Mate, the Mario Testino's museum. Victor Delfin's house is also in Barranco, if you can arrange a tour to his place, you might be able to meet him. We did.!!! Great food also in Barranco, close to... More

This is probably the best place to stay at in Lima if you're into a more lively, laid-back atmosphere. You should really consider going to el Cerro in Chorrillos (30 minutes away by foot). The views from where the Christ statue is are fantastic (avoid being there late).

pubs, restaurants, night clubs, discos, and places to see a show and take a drink. Be careful in the streets at night, it can be dangerous.

Barranco is THE area if you want to meet nice open minded people. Great restaurants, great artists, nice shops, musicians, designers, etc...! And of cours there is the great beaches. There is a walkway to the sea that runs through Barranco, called the Bajada de los Baños. If you visit Lima/Miraflores, then Barranco is a MUSt see place. You'll love... More

Pleasant area which I viewed during day. Supposedly comes alive at night. Interesting museums. As it was part of an overall tour, cannot really get a feel for more of the community. Nicer section that downtown Lima.

This part of Lima is a little different from Miraflores as it´s much more relaxed and not as hectic. Well worth a visit.

A pretty safe disctrict as well, just like Miraflores, if you wanna meet some local cool girls that are not only looking to take some of your money, this is a good place to start. Full of bars and clubs
