Miraflores Central Park or Kennedy Park

Kennedy Park is one of the most popular places in Miraflores, where people go to relax, have a walk and meet with friends. Here you can watch the art vendors, listen to music and also buy some souvenirs at the flea market. Kennedy Park is also known as Lima’s “cat park” since it is the home of many stray cats. Nowadays most of them have been taken to a shelter but some of them remain. A goup of volunteers feed them every day and offer them for adoption in a booth located in the park.

Dessert Shop

Lima is definitely a place to try some great desserts! We recommend to try them at the dessert booths in Kennedy Park or to visit a local bakery such as “Tortas Lucas”. Here you will find cakes, rice puddings and even desserts made out of “lucuma”, Peru’s unique and traditional fruit of creamy texture.

Tortas Lucas is located at Juan de la Fuente 332, Miraflores

Local Market

Something you cannot miss is in Lima is visiting a local market. You can’t find a big market in Miraflores but you will find one nearby in the Surquillo district, near the Kennedy Park area. In “Mercado Nº1” you will be able to try delicious fresh fruits and also Peruvian dishes for a lower price than a restaurant.

The boardwalk or “Malecon”

The “malecon” is a boardwalk that extends along the coastline in Miraflores and Barranco. It is a great place to have a relaxing stroll with your friends or to have a picnic in the park while you look at the ocean. During the weekdays you will see people relaxing in the gardens, doing yoga or going for a run and during the weekends you will see families with their children. This is the perfect spot to take beautiful pictures, eat some ice cream and see the sunset.
