Cerro Azul has become one of the go-to weekend paradises for Limeños. Largely forgotten by tourists, eschewing the beach for bus rides to Paracas and Ica, the beach town has become one of the new hot spots for Peruvians looking to find the sun and escape foggy Lima. Now it has an up-and-coming nightlife and restaurant scene supported by traveling Peruvians. Here are the best places to sit down and have a drink the next time you’re in Cerro Azul.
During the day they sell 4x4s and at night it turns into a raging night club. It is located at the end of the Malecón near the pier, close to pretty much everything. The club has an open floor plan set up perfectly for dancing with little cocktail tables scattered throughout. They also have dancers who will perform for those in attendance on weekends. It is very popular with locals and the weekend crowds that come from Lima.
If you want to do it like the locals do then don’t head to any cocktail bar, but a local corner store. At night, the plastic chairs and tables go out and these stores turn into the local bars, where you can score cheap beer and some nearby street food.
