One of the best places in Lima to have dinner and watch the sunset. Restaurant Javier is a great choice to spend the dusk while eating good ceviche - restaurant setting and ambience is awesome to impress anyone. It is walking distance from Parque de Barranco. The bridge of surprise is also a cool place to take photos.

The district of Barranco is the bohemian center of Lima and even better for it to be visited at night. Has good bars and restaurants, including places with live music and folkloric dances. Relatively safe in the main streets even at night.

Barranco means cliff in Spanish. The view is spectacular as is the walk near La Puente de Suspiras. Not much shoppimg and we were told to stay away after dark.

Great views of the ocean. We enjoyed walking there an of course having our Starbucks. I would have loved being there when the cable cars were operating back in days past.

What a lovely gem of a place! After staying in Lima and the heavy traffic, huge streets and mass of people it was great to get to Barranco just a 6 sole taxi ride from Milaflores! It's like being in a small beach resort that's totally chilled in comparison to Milaflores! Full of quirky buildings and nice places to chill out and people watch! I loved this neighbourhood! Certainly a must visit to anyone Lima bound!
