    Nice neighbourhood - loads to do
    Miraflores is a lovely smart neighbourhood with a huge clifftop park which is popular with locals and tourists and is very 'westernised'. Lots of opportunities to stop for coffee/food/ice cream and lots of activities to do as well. The beach is rocky and right next to a very busy road so not particularly quiet or relaxing. Views are lovely and from the clifftop and there are shops and restaurants inland if you need close by.

    Safe and Modern with lots to see
    We stayed here for 3 days while visiting Lima as part of a larger trip around Peru. We enjoyed our time here, lots to see and do. If you can visit the Water Park in Lima at night time. Went to some good restaurants such as Panchita and Tanta. Safe and modern place.

    Coffee, Causa & Street Art
    Spending a few days in Miraflores is well worth your time. The coffee is amazing at Terrua Cafe. I did a cooking class and learned to make causas...a must try. I felt very safe walking alone after dark.

    It's a Nice Neighborhood, Not a "thing" to do.
    It's a Nice Neighborhood, Not a "thing" to do. It is one of the nicest areas in Lima. It seems very safe. There are lots of Policia. Our Hotel, the Casa Andina Premium, was in Mira Flores. You can walk to the edge of the world and gaze upon the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Kennedy Park has some great restaurants and shops. Uber works great throughout. If you're staying in Lima, you stay in Mira Flores, otherwise you are taking a big risk.

    Loved this area
    First time in Lima, I did not think much of the drive from the airport as it looked just like another weary busy city?? Our hotel was in the Miraflores district which is high on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean which at the time of year we went in May, it nearly always was misty and dull with the mist rolling in from the sea so never really got a great view of the ocean. We were near to Kennedy Park which was very vibrant and full of cats. They locals love to look after them and have little bowls of food etc and cardboard boxes for their homes! There is a small amphitheatre and some nights there is dancing to loud music which was fun. Beautiful church there to visit. Lots of restaurants and shops and it was great to go there for the few nights we were based there. Came back again to Lima before flying to Arequipa but stayed in a boutique hotel in the Barranco bohemian type area which was very different from Miraflores but still good. In Lima just off the Kennedy Park across from the ice cream parlour I had a great pisco sour at the very small bar La Tasca Bar and took advantage of their Happy Hour. On our last night in Peru after travelling around for over 3 weeks, we came back to Lima and again went to the park and my last stop at this bar for my last Pisco Sour! Fabulous.

    Lima, architectural beauty
    For friends or those who value comfort and good service, I recommend "Terra Quechua Peru". Their focus on personalized attention and comfort makes the trip pleasant and carefree.The City Tour in Lima allowed me to get to know in depth the rich history of the city. We visited emblematic places such as the Plaza Mayor, the Cathedral of Lima and the Convent of San Francisco, with its impressive catacombs. The guide was very passionate and knew every historical detail, which made the tour very educational and entertaining."

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.

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.

"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!

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.
