    Miraflores - where you'll find the hostels in Lima


    Easily Lima’s best-known neighbourhood (and safest reportedly) is Miraflores. This is where Albergue Miraflores House is located. It’s also where you’ll find most of the hostels in Lima.

    The neighbourhood is on the coast, so once I walked out of the hostel, took a right and went straight ahead I’d reach the ocean. Here paragliders fly over the cliffs and tourists come to admire the view. If you don’t want to go paragliding you should definitely check it out if just to watch the surfers (you need to go down to the beach) or walk the cliff walk which leads into Baranco, where you will find lots of other hostels.

    I took a few shots (both still and video) and then went for a bite to eat. Ended up in Shihedo. If you’re looking for a pizza, some pasta or barbecued food this is where to go. It’s right on Parque Kennedy (the heart of Miraflores) and is good value. Now it’s back to the hostel as I believe Francis has a night tour organised.

    Hostel Kokopelli is by far the only place to stay while in Miraflores Lima. Great atmosphere, Clean rooms, professional staff, and great location. They will help you in any way they can to make your stay in Peru as enjoyable as possible. I have never been as satified or felt that I have gotten a better value for my money. It would be a shame not to start out your Peru adventure at Hostel Kokopelli. Tell them Drew sent you. :]
