The Best Shopping in Lima

Lima delivers when it comes to shopping, both for sophisticated shoppers looking for designer goods, and for those in search of textiles, ceramics, woolens, and crafts from makers in Peru. Head to shopping centers like Jockey Plaza or the mall at Larcomar to see the well-heeled citizens of Lima in their natural habitat or go to the Indian Market to peruse handmade items. Exploring both ends of the shopping spectrum helps provide a balanced picture of daily life in Lima.
