Can host for 3 daysHi, I'm Angela. I am a university student who likes to travel. What inspires me is to learn more and more, I feel that from every experience you have, you always take something with you. Traveling for me means living, you live every moment of your trip, you see things and places that you have never seen before.

Worked remote from Lima for 2 months and loved it. Friendly culture, lots to do, affordable, easy to get around. Felt safe as a female solo traveller The food is incredible! It’s easy to eat and live healthily in Peru. Lots of activitiesPosted: May 15, 2023Experienced: January, 2020
Personally, I was not a fan of Lima. The traffic was terrible and I spent ages getting from one place to another (used Uber). The historic centre had some amazing buildings and it was worth spending a day there. I stayed in Miraflores. I felt safe walking around there but was careful at night.Posted: April 11, 2023
Safety: I was alone at night in Miraflores, Barranco and the city center. I didn't have any problems. Recommendations: It's a huge city with good and bad parts. Carry cash. A lot of smaller places don't take cards. Learn some basic Spanish. The taxi drivers will try to overcharge you. The airport is not in a very nice area.Posted: October 29, 2022
You are most likely to fly into Lima, it is a nice stop for the good food and worth a day or two. I stayed in Barranco and liked the area. If you wish to head to Cusco give yourself enough time to acclimatise.Posted: October 28, 2022
Safety: Lima is totally safe. Recommendations: Kennedy Park is fun-they have vendors in the evening. Great outside mall near the beach with fantastic restaurants with ocean views. There’s a pedestrian mall near the Marriott and there’s an ice cream place with the best ice cream ever.Posted: October 25, 2022
Loved Lima, first time stayed for a couple of weeks, as it was May and the weather was fabulous. Sunny, blue skies and warm. Lima is known to be very grey… not a lot of days with blue skies. Made the neighbourhood of Barranco my base. Great bohemian (but upscale in parts) spot by the ocean, lots of cafes, bars, theatres, restaurants, art galleries, live music etc. It’s easy to catch the express bus into town, the Center and old town of Lima. Next to Barranco is Miraflores, a lot more touristy vibe and gets a lot of foreigners. Has a mall on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, lots of shops and restaurants.Posted: October 25, 2022
Safety: I always felt super safe in Lima but didn’t do any walking at night. Recommendations: Take a free walking tour. If you don’t have plans at night you should try to go to “Parque de las Aguas” to the water show, it’s pretty impressive.Posted: October 24, 2022
Peru’s main international airport is Lima and most probably you will arrive to Peru through this airport so stay a couple of nights in Lima to visit the Colonial downtown (Centro de Lima), the Gold museum and the bohemian Barranco district. Also the culinary offering in Lima is amazing so it’s worth to take time to enjoy it.Posted: October 23, 2022
Absolutely loved Lima! My favourite neighbourhood was definitely Barranco. I felt very safe, there were lots of restaurants, shops, a grocery store, walking trails and was very close to the beach.Posted: October 23, 2022
Lima was my least favorite part of Peru. It's a large, modern city but with lots of traffic and considerable crime issues. Great food scene, though. Miraflores seemed to be the nicest part.Posted: October 23, 2022
