Clean and safe.
Sep 2021 • Couples
Very clean and safe. Several boutique shops and hotels. There also some good dining options. It is not a tourist area though, so not much to do in the specific district.

Safe area to arrive in central Lima
Mar 2020
Even after dark this modern (financial) district just north of Miraflores is safe. If you are planning to arrive in Lima in the evening or even during the day look for a bus company that drops off or has a terminal here of close by (e.g. TRC). San Isidro is within walking distance of (low) budget accommodation in Miraflores. Avoid arriving in La Victoria the neighborhood just north of San Isidro, as that area is densely populated and security there is an issue.

Where Lima's rich and famous chose to live ...
Oct 2019
The district of "San Isidro" is absolutely unmissable at any visit to Lima! This high-end area started to be populated in the early 1930's and, in more recent years, with the building of modern office towers, it became not only Lima's financial district, but also the favorite quarter for foreign embassies and consulates. "San Isidro" is definitely the place chosen by the rich and famous "limeños", including artists, authors and celebrities, to live, shop, dine and attend its most exclusive (and extremely beautiful) golf course! And last, but not least, it is also home of fantastic ancient ruins - the famous "Huaca Huallamarca" is another attraction of "San Isidro"! Enjoy!

Beautiful place to walk and shop!
Jan 2020
So many well kept parks that go on for blocks backing up to some interesting shopping. This is
shopping of Peruvian designers and craftspeople in a more chic setting. Restaurants and some
larger department stores line the corners. The churches are open and lovely.

One of the good areas in Lima
Aug 2019
There are basically two good areas to be in Lima, one is San Isidro and the other one is Miraflores.

One of Lima's nicest neighborhoods
Dec 2019
Half of the foreign embassies are located here and some of Lima's best restaurants and sports clubs. One of the tonier neighborhoods to live in. One of South America's oldest golf clubs is located right in the middle plus two famous churches, a museum or two and a great park full of hundred year old and older Oliver Trees.

Another subdivision of Lima
Dec 2018
Located in the city limit of Lima and next to the suburb of Miraflores, this neighborhood offer some attractions and historical site which fit its status as a subdivision of the city.

Very nice!
Jul 2019
Here is where many of the world's embassies are found. There are great restaurants and athletic facilities here. We were even able to visit the country club and ate a very traditional meal which was very delicious while we were there.

nice safe area - but not as great as Miraflores for tourists
Aug 2019
This is a very safe area that we were happy to walk around. Several of the best hotels are located here because it is the financial district, and this is where we stayed. We did wish we has stayed in Miraflores though - a much more interesting area for tourists
