We had a wonderful breakfast at the Sofa Cafe and then got to watch a very interesting Parade where all the different areas were marching, dancing and music. After that we walked through a park surrounding my lovely older buildings and also stopped at two really interesting Peruvian craft stores. Really enjoyed it. I would definitely go back there again... More

This is a very artistic neighborhood and beautiful art can be seen everywhere. It offers scenic views of the ocean and is home to Lima's rich. Many great ceviche restaurants can be found there.

Barranco has beautiful areas and structures that tell us life in the last century in this district. some public places and establishments are neglected and not meet minimum standards of higiene for what they charge their patrons for food, show and beverages.

We rode some bikes we hired along the Malecon, very peaceful and relaxing way to spend the afternoon. Lots of new bars and restaurants opening up.

Ended up here by chance and loved walking around. There's tons of shops and restaurants all within walking distance of the main square. When we were there, there was also a gastronomic fair in the main square, and a dance competition. Great, safe walking neighborhood in Lima.
