Miraflores

Many visitors to Peru stay in Miraflores, and for good reason: The neighborhood is where you’ll find most of the better hotels, as well as the top restaurants. Get off main streets to stroll the pretty side streets. Down by the ocean, walk the Malecón seawall and visit the Parque del Amor, or Love Park, to watch paragliders soar and bank overhead. The oceanfront is also home to Larcomar, an open-air shopping mall where you can grab a bite or shop for any items you may have forgotten.

Get Rolling

Explore the elegant Miraflores neighborhood on two wheels with one of the hotel's complimentary bicycles. Ride along the cliff top Malecón promenade, always bustling with bikers, skateboarders, joggers, and strolling locals, and pause along the way to enjoy the views. If you're with your partner or paramour, stop by Parque del Amor to snap a selfie by the giant El Beso (Kiss) statue. And be sure to hit one of the area's notable restaurants or bars, too, and reward yourself for all that pedaling.

Getting Your Grove On

I had a fabulous afternoon with my one on one cooking class at Sky Kitchen (http://www.yurac.de/), Peru in the heart of the Miraflores District of Lima. I enjoyed my time cooking with Chef Yurac learning a few things new & of course the beautiful culinary flavors of the local dishes that make Lima the food capital of South America. It was well worth my time to explore something non traditional from the average site seeing that any traveler will do, cooking at Sky Kitchen allowed me to get to see a part of the culture that I wouldn't necessary see walking on the streets, but rather let me enjoyed culture from the inside of a home.

Lima Coast

The coast of Lima city is so different from any I have seen. It is much more dramatic. And there are only rocks when you go out on the water, not sand. The main sport here is surfing. People actually go south or north for beaching. My favorite part has to be that the only way down to the beach is walking many many steps down from city level.

Lima Coast

The end of a beautiful day in Lima, Peru. This is where people could go paragliding along the coast. Watching the sun go down over the Pacific was incredible.

Exploring Lima's Miraflores District

Miraflores, one of 43 districts in Lima, is a beautiful strip of green between the city and the ocean.

Everyone gathers in Miraflores on sunny weekends: Couples, babies, skateboarders, Tai Chi-ers, bicyclists, para-gliders, picnickers, lovers and even tightrope-walkers.
