Self-Guided Walking Tour: An afternoon in Miraflores, Lima, Lima, Peru (B)

Miraflores has become the most popular neighborhood in Lima. Just about 20 minutes south of the historic center, you can find everything you need: accommodations from budget to luxury, cafes, restaurant, nightlife, parks and the ocean almost at your doorstep.
