Zoo in Lima

by ycnan

How is the zoo in Lima? Is it easy to get to from Miraflores?

Re: Zoo in Lima

by dansak

Hi!
There are two in Lima:
1) PARQUE DE LAS LEYENDAS: It is in San Miguel (near Miraflores), this zoo is the biggest, there are animals from Peru and other countries.

2) HUACHIPA: It is in Huachipa (far from Miraflores), it is small.

Thank you, Have you been to the Parque de las Leyendas? I will be in Lima in a couple of weeks and have a day, after the historic tour, to do something on my own. Since I live in San Diego, California, and the Zoo here is one of the best, I'm interested it going to other zoos.

Hi
I went to the the Parque de las Leyendas zoo on my last day before my flight as it is quite close to the airport (short taxi ride). I enjoyed it, there is enough to keep you entertained for a few hours. I remember a big monkey island & a big rainforest birds selection with amazing parrots.
I was afraid to see a somewhat derelict zoo with poorly looked after animals but it was clean and everything looked fine.

Travel Tips for Lima

It was baptized as the City of...

by Lima_Peru

It was baptized as the City of the Kings on January 15, 1535, but it was more a seat of viceroys, nobles and down-on.their luck aristocrats, who arrived in this land attracted by news of the inexhausible gold of the incas. Lima with their songs,prayers, food and aromas of burning incense and mirrh.
Lima in October.

Don't miss out on this guys...

Lima is by excelence, a city of museums. With more than 50 museums in the city, the best ones in Peru are located here. From public to private and from general to specialized museums, visiting them can be a good experience to know the different processes in topics like history, archaeology, anthropology, nature, culture, technology, art, religion, costumes, collections and crime. Although it is difficult to visit the majority of them in few days, I recommend that you visit the Museo de la Nación, Museo Nacional de Antropología, Arqueología e Historia, Museo de Oro, Museo Larco Herrera and Museo Amano.

Retrobar

by baanasta about Bobos

This is hands down my favorite bar in Lima. Like so many other places in this city, it has everything you would want out of a bar: Good music, dance floor, comfortable sofas, good drinks, etc. However, the difference between this bar and others is that it is a little more upscale, but certainly not over the top. Plus, if you are a fan of 80s music this is no doubt the place to go. Thursdays and Saturdays are big 80s nights. Somewhat upscale lounge. Jeans are OK.

Peruvian Seafood

by DFWOutdoors about Mar de Copas

Many of the terms they use and the names of fish are completely different than what I am accustomed to in Mexico. Since I was the only one who spoke Spanish, I had a lot of questions. There were no menus in English. They offer every plate in small, medium, and large. Since there were 5 of us, we chose an appetizer and 3 medium dishes. Choclo is one of the native large kernal corns. They use this corn to make a relish and use it in some dishes like ceviche. The appetizer - WOW - was choritos a la chalaca. Little black mussels topped with this choclo relish. Oh so good! The first dish was a ceviche. I have had some good ceviche in Mexico, and I make a damn good ceviche, but this ceviche was different and excellent. Then we ordered a platter of fried shrimp and fish. It was lightly battered and oh so fresh. The third dish was fish filets in a garlic sauce, similar to the Mexican al ajo style. On top of that a few cold Cusquena beers - you get the big bottles and everyone shares. When we met up with the rest of the group at the hotel, we ranted and raved about the restaurant so much that on the last day of our trek, before heading back to the U.S., we ended up back in Lima. This time I took 12 to the restaurant. We ordered the large platters. More choritos, ceviche with calamari, garlic fish, fried seafood, and even some fish in a lime sauce. And of course more big beers for all to share. The restaurant ran out and had to go next door to get more. WE FEASTED! Including a healthy tip for our server, it was less than 10 USD per person. I would go back to Lima just for this restaurant!

The traditional food at Barranco

by El_Sueco

The traditional food 'restaurant' in Barranco. Open each saturday and sunday, from afternoon till 10-11 PM.
(this means a file of tables with typical peruvian food, you decide what you want, pay (low prices) and get a 'recibo' which you present to the cook)
A very calm, quiet and nice place, where you can enjoy all the traditional food of Peru to very reasonable prices. Example: Papas rellenos 1,5 USD.
Friendly local people. Papas rellenos, Aji de gallina, Papas de Huancayina, Ocopa, well there are all the things you want to try.
To the food you can add all the pies: Pie de durasno, Pie de manzana etc. Suspiros (marenge with manjarblanco). To this you drink Chicha morrada o Inca Cola.
