Tourists and business travelers who come to Lima use it as a stopover on their way to visit more interesting destinations. It doesn’t have to be that way. A visit to Lima wouldn’t be complete without visiting Miraflores. It’s Lima’s most popular district amongst tourists and has several attractions.
This district is also close to great boutique hotels in Lima. At Royal Park Hotel, we always encourage our guests to go out and explore Lima and always recommend the following places in Miraflores.
Peruvians love to drink and their Pisco is world-famous. What most tourists don’t realize is that there are several brands of Pisco available, all with their own merit. Royal Park Hotel, like all great boutique hotels in Lima, has its own bar stocked with all major brands along with some international vintages. You can go bar-hopping in Miraflores or visit wine tasting rooms in the district, to sample some unique cocktails and spirits, including the well-known Pisco Sour.
Miraflores is a great destination for a food lover as it offers the best gastronomic experience in Lima. The district has a good collection of restaurants, cafes, street food, etc. There are several cevicherias here where you can sample different varieties of the famous ceviche. You can also try some of the lesser known local dishes if you don’t mind experimenting with new cuisines. All in all, Miraflores is a good place to visit for food.
You don’t have to go all the way to Machu Picchu to experience the culture of Perú. In fact, you can see an architectural marvel that’s older than Machu Picchu right here in Miraflores. The Huaca Pucllana is smack-dab in the middle of the city and was created by the Lima Culture people that existed from 200 to 700 AD. This structure is an awe-inspiring place to visit and shouldn’t be missed.
Along the cliffs facing the ocean is a group of gardens and parks collectively called the Malecon. Visiting it is one of the best things to do in Miraflores and both locals and tourists enjoy it. It’s a good place to people-watch as there are many who walk, play games, leap off the cliff to paraglide, etc. You can spend hours exploring the gardens and not get bored.
These are some of the best things to do in Miraflores. If you need to know more or have questions you can call us at Royal Park Hotel on +51 1 215 1618 or you can fill this contact us form and we’ll surely get back to you.
