It has great restaurants, cafes, galleries, shops and lots of mural art. Barranco sits high above the beach much like in Santa Monica.

Barranco is a fun neighborhood to explore. In comparison to Miraflores, it has a younger and hipper vibe. There's a big art scene there and it feels like the up-and-coming neighborhood in Lima. However, it's a bit more hectic and dirtier than Miraflores.

This is a great alternative to upscale Miraflores. A tad scruffy, but at the same time, unique and desirous. Lots of restaurants and bars. A very inviting part of town. I would think of staying here on my next trip

The area is not as commercialized as Miroflores but has good selection of nice but inexpensive restaurants. That was the reason I went. It still has characters as other old districts in Peru and overall quite clean.

We went through Barranco, the bohemian district of Lima on a full day tour of Lima. It really has a relaxed feel with lots of amazing street art (Not graffiti) and sculptures. We went into a couple of galleries that didn’t charge admission and then...More

A very beautiful district in Lima, it is called the "bohemian" district due to the number of artists and artisans residing there along with lots of nice bars and really beautiful walk. This district is a MUST - SEE while in Lima.

Such a wonderful part of town. Its two different places in one. During the day its just a sleepy seaside town. Then by night it turns into a really vibrant wonderful buskers paradise. Go at weekends it great.

Seems like you have plenty of input already. Checking them all I will stuck with the advice of HOLDcrypt as a walk from Miraflores to Barranco, and perhaps take a cab back to your hotel. That will work for a short stay if... More

Peruvian food in general has animal products, so unless you cook it yourself, very hard to find vegan food in Barranco. In other places in Lima you might. But because our food is incredible and world wide known, you might... More
