We were staying in San Isidro so only briefly visited Miraflores as part of a city tour. Situated alongside the sea shore it is home to many of the top hotels and restaurants and is the most favoured area for tourists visiting the city. If we had been staying in Lima longer than 2 nights, we would have moved to this area.

"Miraflores", a district of Lima, is a must go at any visit to the Peruvian capital city. It is cosmopolitan, chic, welcoming and quite safe for all visitors. Whatever you name, you'll find there - beaches, parks, cafés, restaurants, theaters, shopping malls ... and the absolutely awesome inca ruins of the "Huaca Pucllana"! Along its famous "Malecón" ("Miraflores Boardwalk"), green parks and breathtaking views from the cliffs leaning over the Pacific Ocean. Come by sunset, bring your camera and get ready for unforgettable memories. Enjoy!

I have never met such pleasant people in all my travels. The shopping is great too although there seems to be more shoe stores than any city really needs. Excellent restaurants and easy to find. If the locals are eating there then you should too!! Miraflores is very clean and safe with the best views of the ocean from the cliffs along the Malecon.

Arrived in Miraflores at the moment the State of Emergency was declared due to Corona. As a result most of the time I was locked inside a small hostel one block away from Larcomar (main avenue) and unable to explore a lot of the area. What struck me most was there is plenty of space. Unlike other urban areas in Peru there are parks and tree lined boulevards. The setting on top of the cliffs bordering the ocean is very pleasant as well. The wealthy part of Peru has created a comfortable enclave here amidst a vast conglommerate of neighborhoods where mainly poor people live. Comfort also means there are modern supermarkets and attractive restaurants though the latter were mostly closed because of Corona.

Most of the 100,000 plus inhabitants of Miraflores are wealthy people. Their servants live in other parts of the city of Lima (population 11 million). Service providers in Miraflores are generally very nice people. Many of the wealthy citizens are more indifferent towards tourists and travellers. A small number of them seemed to blame us for bringing corona to Peru, even though most of the travellers spent months in Latin America prior to the lockdown. Some locals took pictures of us and posted them online. Neighbors complained after observing more than three people on the rooftop of the hostel or on a balcony. However, most people behaved normal and not hostile towards us.

Miraflores is, along with Barranco, the best of Lima's districts, with excellent restaurants and pleasant areas to stroll. But, as elsewhere in Lima, car drivers are super-aggressive, public transportation is terrible, and the air quality is awful. If you're even mildly asthmatic like me, you'll soon learn why the U.N.'s World Health Organization has consistently rated Lima as the city with the worst air pollution of ANY city in North OR South America. I had to cut my vacation short after only two days in that city. Interesting museums, but is it worth the hazard to your health? A quick pass-through on the way to Machu Picchu or elsewhere..

We were on vacation from Canada and really loved our stay in Miraflores district of Lima. We heard of all kinds of warnings about security in and around the city. However in Miraflores we felt absolutely safe. It's a good place to stay if you are visiting Lima.

Lima has some guarded gated communities, including the one surrounding and cutting off the large central park, but Miraflores is open, relatively safe, has most of the good shopping and restaurants. You'll never see a non-american home or business that isn't barred, fenced, and protected by razor wire and electrical fencing, but it is heavily policed and reasonably safe. Because of the pandemic, everything closes early, but the huge number of bike delivery boys suggests that it is also safe in the evenings.

Miraflores is cleaned up area in Lima with parks and shops and hotels around . It’s cleaner then outside this area and there is electric scooters available for rent. I really like those. Some streets have cycling roads too, so it’s fairly safe if you are careful.
Hotels and shops are bit better too.
Miraflores is about 10-12 km from Plaza De Armas
