Run the Malecón
The most popular destination (and one of the only) for running in Lima is along the Malecón bike path. Be warned that the name changes from Malecón de la Reserva to Malecón Cisneros and finally to Malecón de la Marina. But the more than two miles of scenic coastline stretches from San Isidro through Miraflores past Larcomar shopping centre and the Parque del Amor, all the way to Barranco. You can stick to the path or find the stairs near the Parque del Amor that descend to sandy beach. If along the way toward Barranco you happen upon an outdoor exercise class dancing to a remix of “Gangnam Style,” as there was when I passed, join them.
