Though not a typical touristy district of Lima, San Isidro actually has a lot to offer. Many of the new upscale hotels are going in here (The Westin - the tallest building in Peru - is one of the most recent and noteworthy) and new restaurants seem to open up almost daily. The financial center of the city, this is also where a lot of the money stays, and many of the most beautiful homes and neighborhoods are located here, making this a great district to walk around in. One of the best strolls in town can be taken through the Olivar Park.Recommended for:

What I remember most from the Barrio San Isidro is the embassy row. I find it really awesome to see embassies of countries that are not usually present in most western countries (namely North America) such as: North Korea and Cuba. It was the closest I have gotten to "visit" said countries....while in Peru!
