any advice froa decent priced beach front hotel in lima? hotel needs to sleep 3
thank you

Re: hotels.

by nhoolb

There are not really beach hotels in Lima that I know of, due to the steep cliffs dropping down to the sea on which Lima/Mirafores is built.
The one that comes close to it is the Marriot in fron of shopping center Larco Mar. Another one could be the Best Western Embajadores-3 blocks from the sea. In any case you would have to walk down the cliffs.

Travel Tips for Lima

Get on an airplane and go to...

by barbaragai

Get on an airplane and go to Iquitos. Here is an interesting story. When the Spaniards had Atahualpa in prison (moments before they killed him), they asked him where the capital of the colony should be placed. He replied: 'near the ocean' and he described the location of today's Lima. This was his revenge. It's the worst place to put a city! Getting on an airplane and seeing the dry plain below me as I headed northeast toward Iquitos and the warm jungle. The house in the photo shows where we are headed.... to a research center called Global Awareness Institute near Iquitos.

Art Deco in Barranco

by SirRichard

If you like art deco architecture, you will find some samples wandering around in the souther coast neighborhood of Barranco. This used to be a residential area for artists with a certain bohemian atmosphere, and still todays this is one of the most charming areas in Lima.

Ambiente en el centro

by K-nalla about Yakana

A club with one of the best views from a nightclub in Lima, formidable Plaza San Martín. It has different concerts depending on the day of the week, punk, new wave, electronic, poetry recitals. It varies, nothing associated with commercialized rythmns. The building itsef is incredible, high ceilings, open areas, those french-styled windows so popular in the 20's. No dress code.

Peruvian food

by world_citizen about Festival de la comida

This is streetfood but not as you know it! Every saturday, sunday and bank holiday the Barranco local council runs the food festival. Disadvantaged families work as a cooperative to produce food from all over the country which is cooked on the street under a shetler from the sun and sold to families who come there for lunch. Peruvian food is really varied and you can can stuff from all the different regions here so it's a great place to try it. Although it's street food, it's properly prepared and very hygeinic. Brochettas! BBQ chicken kebabs served with a potato and huancaina sauce and salad! Just spicy enough! Drink chicha morada to go with it.

The Peruvian Ambassador

by K-nalla about Ceviche

Dont really have a special reason to put in this page since its a whole coast thing. Ceviche is a traditional dish, maybe the favorite one among coast and visitor as when they are asked what their favorite one, they say ceviche without hesitation. A fine mixture of fish and all sorts of seafood cooked in lemon and deliciousness. Ceviche excels by its special flavor of fresh fish mixed with lemons, and some people compare it to sushi. Preparation begins by marinating fish with lemon juice and then seasoning with chili, salt and pepper. The difference comes mainly into the garnishes, potatoes, yuca, sweet potato, yuyo, onions, tomatoes, cancha (some places even have changed the fish for chicken or duck, as in Chimbote) and of course accompannied by its classical chicha de jora. In competitions among coastal cities, Chimbote has won over the last couple of years, but a variety that needs to be tried is the ceviche de conchas negras, fished only in the north (Piura, Tumbes) but arrives at Lima in a reasonble time and it arrives fresh, prefect for a ceviche. Gotta try it....
