Exploring Miraflores Park and Surroundings
Some people consider the Miraflores district the new "Downtown Lima." Miraflores Park, also known as Kennedy Park, lies at the center of it. You can find a wonderful sampling of Peruvian culture here, from the trendiest to the most traditional. Come to Miraflores for restaurants, stores, libraries, coffee shops, art galleries, bars, a cinema, street artists, an early 20th century church, a park full of cats, and traditional street food stalls. A five-minute walk will take you to the cliff and a great ocean view, where you can go paragliding at sunset or sit and have a picnic. Take the afternoon to walk and explore.
