Where to Stay in Lima
Pleasure seekers will not be disappointed with a trip to Lima. This picturesque city has beautiful beaches, exciting nightlife and a gorgeous historic district that dates back to the city’s early colonial days. If you want to stay near many of Lima’s most well known landmarks, stay in one of the discount hotels in the El Centro district. Many of the city’s most luxurious boutiques are located in the Miraflores district. This oceanside area is known as much for its flower-filled parks as it is for its golden beaches and excellent shopping. Or spend some time near the ancient temple ruins of Huaca Huallamarca in San Isidro.
Lima Hotel Tips
Lima is just south of the equator, so it’s seasons are opposite of those in the U.S. This makes it a great winter getaway spot. The months of December through March are a magnet for beachgoers, so make your reservations well in advance to make sure you get the rooms you want. Those trying to find low-priced airfare to Lima and the best hotel deals should plan their trips for Lima’s cooler season, which lasts from June through October. During this period, temperatures rarely hit 70. Still, the climate is still comfortably warm, making it a great time for sightseers and those looking to experience Peruvian culture without the crowds.
Lima Hotel Recommendations
The exclusive five-star Miraflores Park Hotel in the Miraflores district of Lima offers guests breathtaking Pacific Ocean views from its rooftop swimming pool. The hotel provides guests with a variety of premium services, including an array of spa treatments and a unique Bath Butler service, where guests can order specialty baths that include special oils, soaps and tub-side cocktails. Dine at Mesa 18, the hotel’s chic Peruvian dining room.
Looking for a cheaper stay in the trendy Miraflores neighborhood? Then make reservations at Hotel San Blas. The hotel frequently offers special deals, so inquire before booking your room. Some rooms at this charming hotel come equipped with Jacuzzis, making it a perfect destination for a romantic retreat. Neighborhood restaurants are a little out of the way, but fortunately the hotel’s café serves late into the night.
The Libertador Hotel is a good choice for both business travelers who are visiting Lima’s financial district or sightseers who want to be close to the city’s top historic sites. Located across the street from the San Isidro Golf Club, the hotel features a 24-hour business center, a bar that specializes in Pisco Sours and a restaurant that serves up such Peruvian treats as raw fish ceviche with sweet potatoes.
The public transit system in Lima may be extensive, but it’s a traveler’s nightmare. Hundreds of buses, smaller microbuses and vehicles known as combis drive through the streets, most of which are operated by a variety of private companies. For many tourists, it’s just easier to hail a cab and travel from neighborhood to neighborhood as needed.
