    A good mix of Peruvian stores mixed with those you could find anywhere. We’ve been coming here for over a decade and have few complaints. There are a couple of local faster food places, a cinema with English language films (or at least subtitled) and it has been safe for us to use the banks and cell phone stores. The grocery store has a good selection of harder to find items and sometimes decent fish. It’s popular with the locals so usually fairly crowded. Well worth a visit.

    I've been here before during one of my Lima visits. It wasn't as popular then, but definitely something I found awesome. It was very busy this time around and I am glad to see that organic food and products are getting more attention. Came here for breakfast and left with a full belly of delicious food.

    A comprehensive market with small units selling all the usual souvenirs and typical tourist stuff. Small locally-made woollen rugs are good value. There are also good washrooms for which a nominal fee is charged.

    We went this past january to gamarra. Which is like a market place where you can find many things for very cheap. It's a little crazy going there so please be aware that this is not a good area of Lima to be at so you need to leave your jewelry and expensive cell phone at home and carry your purse right next to you and just the necessary stuff. But it's worth the time to go.

    I visited this place with my brother. We tried makis, which were simply ok. The place seemed modern and well organized, much like Real Plaza Salaverry. Still, not as cool as Jockey Plaza.

    This place is absolute magic. My favorite place in Lima. You have live music almost every night, the best terrace were you don't hear any traffic noise, great coffee, and very good art.

    The Polo Shopping Center is very well located, right next door to some of the best specialized hospitals and clinics. It also has a great Gym for working out. Also is only a few blocks from a local Market and a Vivanda Market (Grocery Store).
    This is the place where classy ladies go shopping. It has some of the best clothing and accessories shops in Lima.
    The restaurants in the area are all very good.
    The plaza (that is me in the picture) has a few sidewalk cafes, like Micky Dees, Dunking Donuts and other cafes, more classy ones.
    Although it has 3 rows of stores, notice that there is another shopping mall next door, that you can reach through El Polo Avenue (in the back).
    If you are a Polo enthusiast (the actual sport), the Lima Polo Club is located behind the Embassy and it is open to the public on major polo championships. (The embassy grounds used to be part of the Polo Club).
    To get there, just take a city bus from Miraflores (2 soles fare) and leave the driving to someone else. Parking is plentiful and I believe free (with validation).
    There is a huge underground parking lot under the building next door, but unless is rush hour, there is plenty of parking.
    Lots of regular locals hang out and on weekends, there are free activities (like street shows). Great for an early Saturday night outing.

    We walked around the market on a Saturday, surprised that there were so few shoppers. Many of the vendors sold similar items for similar prices. We bougt a few things, but overall found the Indian Market across the street to have higher quality items (sweaters, shawls,etc) though higher prices. There was also more diversity at the Indian market.

    If you like animation, illustration, graphic novels -- you will LOVE this place. It's only a few rooms -- won't take more than a 30 minute visit -- but I really enjoy this artwork. They had a series of Star Wars illustrations that were beautiful. Fun superhero artwork - worth a stop.

    While in Barranco we went to Jade Rivera's gallery to see and by one of his beautiful pieces. The place is in the center of Barranco, next to the bridge of sights and the entrance is free. Visit his gallery is a must do if you love art.

    I went there because my family talked a lot about the store. My husband wanted Peruvian decorations to hang. Went for one piece and left with 4, just because I did not have enough room in my luggage. Got two masks, one print and a beautiful table runner that we will hang. The seller was a very patient lady, I am sorry I can't remember her name. I will go back if I go to Lima, Peru.
