Where to Stay in Lima

Lima, Peru is a city not to be missed. Many will visit either before or after Cuzco (since Lima is the city most international travelers fly in and out of when visiting Peru). We came straight from Cuzco and I was incredibly sick from the altitude. What I needed in Lima was relaxation and rejuvenation.

We stayed at Casa Andina Premium in Miraflores and it was exactly what we needed. Walking into this beautiful hotel we were greeted with a traditional Peruvian (non-alcoholic) drink in the lobby as the staff helped us check in (they even highlighted lunch and shopping recommendations on a map for us to start our time in Lima!)

The stunning hotel lobby

This hotel is located in the incredible Miraflores neighborhood. This is the most ideal place in Lima to stay. It’s only a few blocks from the famous Parque Kennedy and a 15-minute walk to the ocean and Larcomar. The food options are endless. One of our favorite casual restaurants, La Lucha, is located just a few minutes from Casa Andina. It was wonderful to stay somewhere so central and be able to walk wherever we needed to go.

Our first day in Lima we needed a lot of rest to heal from the altitude sickness in Cuzco. I couldn’t ask for a better hotel room to do so. I’m not kidding when I say it is the most comfortable hotel bed we may have ever stayed in– and the view makes it that much better! Coming home from exploring the town, pulling on the soft white robe and climbing into bed made this feel like a vacation on our vacation.

When we travel we usually like to explore the city we are in for a few hours at a time and rest in between so we don’t get burnt out. At Casa Andina Premium we loved heading to the pool after our morning adventures and to the lobby bar after our afternoon adventures.

We are a married couple living in Chicago, and we are obsessed with traveling (probably like you). Unlike many travel bloggers, we have no intention on quitting our jobs and traveling full time because we actually love our jobs (shocker- I know) and we have a sweet puppy that we can't bear to leave for for than 3 weeks at a time. This hasn't stopped us from making all of our travel dreams come true. We are excited to share our adventures with you and help show you how you too, can travel the world- even while working full time. Emilie & Chris

One thought on “Where to Stay in Lima

  1. Of the 43 districts in Lima, only a few are regularly recommended as good places for visitors to stay. If you’re heading to the capital especially for the first time you’ll probably want to book a hotel or hostel in one of these areas. Which one you choose will depend partly on the things you want to see and do in Lima, as well as the level of safety you’re looking for.
