I walked here with my friend when we were in Peru - I was interested in seeing the Bridge of Sighs, however, I found a whole lot more that I loved about this area. I enjoyed this district more than Miraflores - it offered a...More
I actually walked to the Barranco area from Miraflores. It took about 40 minutes. This was a good way to see the daily life in Lima. The Barranco District street art is enjoyable. Bus or taxi back to Miraflores works well.
Wandering around Barranco by foot is an excellent way to enjoy the suburb and get a grasp of the bohemian feel attached to the area. Huge amount of street art, restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries means more than one visit is required. Weekend visit is...More
Barranco was described as the bohemian area of Lima with lots of murals and street art. There is also the Bridge of Sighs. A 30m bridge set in a pretty picturesque area. There are lots of restaurants around and one could easily spend an afternoon...More

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 that is what you have in mind. But keep in mind what follows, as you can do this walk in reverse of course, from Barranco to Miraflores stead.
The main atraction in Miraflores is LARCOMAR Shopping Center and its walkways close to the cliffs on the way to Barranco (and viceversa).
Pretty good restaurants are available in both districts with similar prices. Nightlife happens in both districts but more in Barranco with more affluence of young people to keep it in mind.
But, if you preferred quiet nights, don't stay in the busy Barranco whose nightlife is great but noisy.
Due the short distance between both districts, isn't a big deal where you stay but consider that Miraflores has the better (most expensive as well) hotels with quiet nights warranty.
Now, if you are after the fun, expecting to stay late every night, Barranco is your place. Get up late and have great traditional breakfast by stepping out your place will happens in Barranco counting with its great set up, which is much better than Miraflores in terms of atmosphere and architectural/nature flavor.
If you keep looking and find a hotel in Barranco with triple glass windows, and soundproof walls -Go there with my blessings and visit Miraflores as a plus.

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
