    Our flight got cancelled and we had to book quickly for one night close to the airport. Mama was so happy to house us for the night! She made sure we knew where all the good restaurants were, when to take our taxi, and even made breakfast an hour earlier for our early flight time. Everything was super clean, the showers were hot, and the breakfast was delicious. Can’t recommend Mama’s enough!

    Mama is THE BEST. So so hospitable. She offered distilled water immediately and showed us to our beds that had towels ready for us to use. Everything was clean and tidy! I even caught Mama cleaning early in the morning before others woke up. There are a few of the friendliest cats that walk around and keep ya company, just not in your room! I only stayed for one night (came in late, left early)..I didn’t see much to do in the area but there are plenty of restaurants. I recommend!

    Mama was the perfect host. She made sure we had everything we needed and even got up early to make us breakfast before our early flight. Great place to stay if just passing through Lima for the night.
