Miraflores, turistic district of Lima Peru
Miraflores is the touristic district of Lima. The main hotels are located in this nice city by the Pacific ocean. During the last years, there have been a development of a huge offer of amenities, since fine cousine, fast food, cyber cafes (internet for less than a dollar per hour), until casinos, dancing, handcrafts, antiques flea markets, original paintings, cinemas, and much more.
The traditional Miraflores beach joins a lot of surfers as well as the riffs attracts windsurfers.
Miraflores also has an archeological site called Huaca Pucllana, which is a turistic place to visit and have a flavor of ancient cultures in the middle of the western culture.
For the modern mainstream, you can find Larco Mar which is a mall looking at the ocean, with a sunset that relax you.
The main travel agencies are in Miraflores with a huge offer of cities to visit in Peru. Even the main peruvian airlines have their offices in Miraflores.
However, the best way to enjoy your visit is renting a nice apartment (vacation rental) in a residential building. Full furnished, equipped and decorated, now it is the alternative for independent and business travellers.
For example, you can have a cozy one bedroom apartment for only US$220 the week, two bedrooms for 4 persons for only US$350 for one week. Of course, you can find luxury apartments and bigger ones. So, why do not you try it?

Miraflores is a district of the Lima Province in Peru. Known for its shopping areas, gardens, flower-filled parks and beaches, it is one of the upscale districts that make up the city of Lima.

I stayed here for one week in April 2011. The apartment itself was exactly as advertised and pictured. What was not advertised or discussed was how the deposit would be returned. The $100 cash deposit was due at the time I departed the apartment. Maria, the owner, looked at the apartment and found one towel dirty. She explained I should have used another towel to clean a mess on the floor. She said she would withhold $20 until I brought back the towel and then she would return the $20. I successfully washed the towel that day and contacted her to return the towel. No response. I contacted her several times over the course of the following week, via email, via phone, and even went to her home in person twice to return the towel. Only once did she respond via email stating when she would be home. She was not home when I went over at the requested time. I still have the towel, and she still has my $20. As stated above, the actual apartment was as advertised. However, be fair warned that the business practice of returning the deposit is not legitimate.
