where we stayed
We stayed at the Lima Park Kennedy hostel from Hostel World and highly recommend it! Its central location provides easy access to attractions, restaurants, and shopping areas, making it a convenient option for travelers who want to explore Lima.
how to get around
To get around in Lima, visitors can use taxis, ride-sharing apps, buses, or the Metropolitano bus system, which has designated lanes and stops for quick transportation. Walking or biking is also an option in some areas, such as Miraflores and Barranco, where there are dedicated paths and bike rental services available. However, it's important to exercise caution and be aware of traffic and safety risks in Lima.
