Lima gets a bad rap
I heard other travelers put Lima down, saying it was dangerous and not pretty. Well I think the complete opposite. I liked Lima and would reommend you go there. I skateboard and it was by far the best city to skate in so far. Also the beach walk in Mirafores was beautiful. Give it try.
Insider Tip:Go to Converse Skatepark in Las Borjas Neighborhood if you skateboard.
