Lima’s historic center is the first place that tourists explore in the Peruvian capital, but the real magic happens once you reach the Pacific coast. The district of Miraflores is one of the city’s most picturesque spots, and it has so much more in store than meets the eye.
What makes Miraflores so interesting is that it has something in store for pretty much everyone—ranging from travelers who just want to sit back and relax, to those who are in the mood for an adventure of a lifetime.
Miraflores is best known for being an upscale district that houses many five-star hotels, restaurants, bars, and high-end stores—but adrenaline junkies will love it just as much. This part of the city is also known as Lima’s prime paragliding destination, and its rocky beaches are equally popular with fans of many water sports.
Miraflores is also home to some of the city’s most picture-perfect tourist attractions. The Park of Love and La Marina Lighthouse are the first that come to mind, but you can also find the clay pyramid Huaca Pucllana and pre-Columbian textile museum Amano in this part of Lima.
