Nice coastal district of Lima. It used to be a fishing village and Lima suburb, but Lima kept growing. It has a very romantic feel with nice colonial architecture and easy access to the Pacific Ocean.Recommended for:Local Culture

Lima's answer to San Telmo in Buenos Aires. At one time the place where the wealthy built summer houses, then a micro capital of bohemian artists and now once again colonised by upmarket restaurants, hotels, galleries and cafes. Given that slum dwellings or characterless business areas are a prominent feature scarring the rest of the Peruvian capital, this area offers a more genteel and correspondingly less edgy side of the city. A good, and on the whole, safe base for exploring Lima.

The bohemian district of Barranco is where artists and designers spend their day among weathered, colonial mansions. By day, it's sleepy and nostalgic. By night, it's the nightlife hub of Lima. Barranco may feel rough around the edges, but make no mistake - there's a romantic air here and it doesn't take long to discover it's charm.

A super fun neighborhood on the sea-cliffs of Lima. Tons of places to go out, and bar hopping is super easy since many spots are densely packed together. Bring your dancing shoes for so'

Barranco and Miraflores are two very beautiful "suburbs" of Lima that have retained their colonial charm. Many of the Barranco homes date back to the late 19th century, yet they don't look rundown in the least. If you're visiting Lima, make sure you take time and experience Barranco.

Barrio Barranco is a wonderful district in Lima that has a really cool and laid back vibe. There are numerous restaurants and lounges in the area branching out from the main plaza. Most noted walk way is the Bajada de los Baños which leads visitors from the main plaza down to the cliffs to the beach. Along the way of this easy walkway are more restaurants and lounge/bar choices.

This was hands down one of the best nights out of my life. When we arrived there was a live blues band playing in the square. Then we hit up the bars. The nightlife is amazing here, and the bars are all close together and linked by beautiful old streets. Definitely go here if you're looking for a night out in Lima.

Barranco is the new bohemian hype neighborhod of Lima. For many years it concentrated artists and musicians, but these days it has evolved to a design oriented type of business, with lots of new fashion designers, art galleries and design boutiques. The nightlife in Barranco is also one of the best, mixing Latin rhythms to electronic music.
