All reviews bridge of sighs puente de los suspiros bohemian neighborhood art galleries hold your breath the main square mario testino street vendors walk around nice area lots of restaurants nice walk the pacific ocean the cliff visiting lima walking tour district
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.
Barranco what a beautiful quite place coffee shops bars history I have spent many days walking around this historical town always pleasant and clean locals just going about there business children playing in the parks relaxing
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

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
