Top things to do in our Lima ’hood—surfing, shopping, cat watching

Upscale shopping. Great dining. Cool cats. Just three of the reasons we love Miraflores, where sprawling Kennedy Park is home to a colony of well-cared-for, free-range felines. Perched on a cliff with an outdoor food court overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Larcomar blows away “hangin’ at the mall” clichés. Less than two kilometers away along the coast, Barranco is a creative district brimming with artisan galleries and trendy boutiques. Go from cutting-edge fashion to ancient culture with a tour of Huaca Pucllana, the ruins of a pre-Inca pyramid in urban Lima, minutes from our hotel. Looking for more adventurous things to do? Surf’s up along the Costa Verde.
