“Seaside Shopping Center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Larcomar is an expensive shopping center perched precariously on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Miraflores. It has stores and restaurants you would also find in the United States together with a cineplex and two upscale discos.

“Peru Nouveau - a good or bad thing?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This is where westerners come to pretend they're in Peru, and where Peruvians come to pretend they're westerners. There are a lot of shiny, glitzy shops containing things ranging from expensive trainers to jewellery, and the dreaded Peru souvenirs featuring cartoon llamas, endless t-shirts, alpaca wool slippers...you name it. The best aspect of it is the view from the deck over the bay. Ideally go there at night so you don't see the incredibly dirty sea, and the really unstable-looking sand/pebble cliffs upon which Lima is built. All the tallest buildings in Peru are on this strip, and for my money, they are one substantial earthquake away from falling into the sea! So go and see it while you can. But remember. At night! Have a pisco sour and look at the view. It's almost romantic.

“Nice place to spend half a day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Location is breathtaking.. View over the ocean is just stunning! When we were there, there was still some construction going on. Quite a variety of shops to browse through, cafes and restaurant to snack and dine. Very tasty ice-cream cafe, mmmmm... Shopping wise, prices are generally more expensive than in America. The mall is not that big and has some American and European brands, and some very nice Peruvian brands.

“great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

overrated for shopping--very touristy and expensive. There are better venues for authentic items. It's a great place to walk, bicycle, enjoy the views. The restaurants are also mostly touristy and overpriced but may be worth it for the views!
