    Take a Weekend stroll in Park Kennedy

    Artists show their paintings by the church

    On a weekend, Park Kennedy in Miraflores is a happening place to be. Artists are out selling their paintings, lovers are pecking at each other in the shade, children are playing on the swings and people are just enjoying their leisure time. On one weekend evening, a crowd was watching a dozen ballroom dancers waltz while, not far away, a colorful band of local musicians played Peruvian tunes.

    Miraflores parks

    Park of Love's (Parque del Amor) beautiful walls

    The parks are what make Miraflores great, in my opinion. The Park of Love (Parque del Amor) features some great, colorful tile walls and a great view. However, the park smells a little unpleasant.

    The Lighthouse Park (Parque el Faro) also has a great view from the cliff and offers a great seat for locals playing soccer.

    Miraflores Square

    The local mercado

    I can't remember the name. I've also heard it called the Miraflores Roundabout. It's on the on Av. Jose Pardo. It has a lovely park, some pretty building and promising markets. I watched some locals do some type of yoga in the shaded area in the park. There were dozens are artists selling their painting and the Cathedral was great.

    Not far from there was a local market (I felt a little conspicious with my light hair and skin) where I just plain absorbed the sights and smells (some not so great as others).

    An Inca market nearby was Artesanias Urin Huanca S.A.

    Good area to stay and hang while you are in Lima

    rocky beach, cliff at Larco Mar

    Go to hang out at Larco Mar, and eat at the restaurant that has a patio overlooking the ocean. Great scenary and great buffet lunch. One of my favorite memory in Peru. Also, movie is cheap there and often is in English with Spanish subtitles. Walk down to the beach and listen to the water washing off the pebbles and rocks, very soothing, you definitely know you are on vacation. Walk along the shore down south to the park where there is the statue of a couple embracing, very green. Also check out the paragliding activitiy, which is $35 for 15 min. (if I remembered correctly). An experience pilot will take you in the sky gliding over the cliff, a great experience!

    View from Parque del Amor

    If you are travelling with your girlfriend I can highly recommend this very romantic park. Panoramic view over the pacific ocean approximately 50 metres below, the sound from the waves and a red sunset creates the frames for a perfect evening.

    This park was dedicated to lovers to make an exception of the typical monuments dedicated to warriors

    The lighting cross at Chorrillos

    Evening over Lima

    At the Morro Solar in Chorrillos, there is a enlighted cross, that recently has been erected.
    I gives quite an impressing picture of the beach panorama.
    If you are inspired you can go to the Park of love in Miraflores (El Parque del Amor), and you will get a good view.

    DISTRITO DE MIRAFLORES

    by RORRO72 Written Mar 31, 2003
    En el Larcomar

    El distrito más habitual para los turistas, donde la mayoría de los hoteles y comercio de categoría internacional se localiza. Existen parques, como el Alfredo Salazar y el Parque del Amor,a orillas del Océano Pacífico, desde donde se divisa una excelente panorámica de las playas. Construido en un acantilado está el Centro Comercial Larcomar, donde comprar, comer e ir al cine.

    Check out the Pacific Coastline

    Some people are dissapointed at the lack of a good beach, but I prefer a rocky, windy, cliff-lined coastline. There's something very majestic about it, and the views are nice.

    Walking at the coast of Miraflores gives you some nice view. Also saw a nice park which reminded me a bit of Park Guell in Barcelona (not as impressive as park guell but still nice)
