“Fun neighborhood on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Spend time walking around this neighborhood and end up walking in one of its many parks on the cliff above the beach, grab a drink or snack, and then head down to the beach and enjoy watching the surfers!

“Miraflores the Beautiful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Being a native of Miraflores I have nothing but great things to say about my district. We are friendly people and we welcome tourists by the millions. Our shopping center, Larcomar, welcomes more tourists than Cuzco annually. I yet to find out another shopping center to be built on the cliffs overlooking an ocean in the world!! In there you will find amazing views of our great Pacific Coast. I actually love waking up everyday and seeing tourists walking along our malecones while jogging. I love it when they tell me that they never thought Lima would this beautiful. Miraflores also boasts a large variety of restaurants, hotels and museums. We even have a Pre-Columbian pyramid within our borders!! Our own security force (Serenazgo) will make you feel even safer. Both Miraflores and neighboring San Isidro spend millions of Soles annually to make of your stay and of our own daily lives a safer one. So if you are planning a trip to Lima...Try my district!! I'm really proud to be a Miraflorino and I am sure you will have the time of your life here!!!

Extremely clean, great restaurants and lots of security guards around. We felt very safe walking around. Lots of interesting things to see around Kennedy Park and the churches.

“Very nice and safe area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We spent most of our time in Lima in the area of Miraflores. It is very safe, with many amenities, and because most of the tourist are there, it is relatively easy to find servers than speak English (for my hubby that is a big thing, as he does not speak Spanish at all). Also in the stores in downtown Miraflores, you can find books and magazines in English. A lot of security and surveillance in the area too.
