Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Miraflores, Peru your home away from home

Miraflores was where the wealthy families of Lima built summer homes along the Pacific coast. The area was well outside the city of Lima at that time and remains one of the most traditional and historical districts of the city. Then, as now, it made the perfect base for enjoying the climate and beaches from a Miraflores holiday home.

Things to Do in Miraflores, Peru

The area around your Miraflores holiday rental has some beautiful beaches which are popular with locals at the weekend. Go surfing or relax and sunbathe in this lovely resort area. Sample the fresh seafood which is caught daily, often served as raw “cerviche”, a local delicacy which definitely should be tasted. Enjoy breakfast or a leisurely lunch at Parque Kennedy, a green recreation area surrounded by pavement cafés and bars. Browse the jewelry and crafts shops in Miraflores for souvenir gifts, a quieter option than shopping in the city of Lima. After dark, head for one of the local bars such as Rosa Nautica, which juts out into the ocean on its own pier. Dining out and nightlife is popular at the weekends, particularly in nearby Barranco. One particularly local experience is a ride on the beautifully restored tram car on the short track that remains of the once-busy tram service.

Places to Visit in Miraflores, Peru

No stay in Miraflores would be complete without exploring the main sights of Lima around the Plaza de Armas. See the Cathedral, the Archbishop’s Palace, the splendid Governor’s Palace and the catacombs beneath St Francis’ Church which are all part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. For a day of cultural history, visit Pachacamac, known as the “Machu Picchu” of this pre-Columbian coastal area. It would once have been the hub of trade until it was looted by Pizarro’s men who killed the priests and searched for gold and treasures. The area is marked by the Temple of the Sun, a large pyramid made of adobe. The old fishing village of Pucusana is a popular place to visit and watch the local fishermen bringing ashore their daily catch.

Weather in Miraflores, Peru

The warmest and sunniest months for enjoying holiday rentals in Miraflores are February and March when temperatures reach an average 26°C (79°F).

This is a spacious and modern apartment situated in a safe neighbourhood. We were able to prepare light meals and wash clothing (a drying rack is provided). The bed was comfortable. As we stayed in the heat of the Lima summer, the apartment was quite warm; however, a fan helped keep us comfortable. We were very happy to be picked up at the airport by Miguel and Caroline who were very friendly and helpful. We were also pleased to be able to arrange a return drive to the airport at the end of our stay.
