“Also there are the Huaca Huallamarca pyramid”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

San Isidro is a wonderful district is , major financial district of Lima, but also a district with many gardens, parks and a quite exclusive residential area.
You will find places to go shopping, savor art galleries, enjoy excellent restaurants, cafes and bars and relax in beautiful parks. Also there are the Huaca Huallamarca pyramid , also known as "Pan de Azúcar" (Sugar bread). is beautifully preserved. It forms a sharp contrast with its surroundings, the modern district of San Isidro, and is a tangible testimony for the highly developed communities in pre-Hispanic times. The on site museum exhibits artifacts found in "Huallamarca" since the first excavations in 1958.

“Visit the parks”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you are around Lima and are travelling with small kids, take a walk with them through the district of San Isidro. Ask your taxi driver to drive you to Parque El Olivar. I used to skate there and also rode my bike several times. Today, 40 years later, the park is again a place where I enjoy to remember those days. Kids riding bikes, parents with strollers, youngsters climbing the same Olive trees I used to climb so many years ago. Have fun.

“Family friendly area”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Not as busy as Mira Flora but very convenient. Easy to get around on foot or by taxi. Plenty of green space to enjoy as we'll as Incan pyramids. Lots of construction but they stay within normal working hours so as to not disturb hotel guests and residents.
