The epicenter of the Peruvian well-to-do set is the glitzy suburb of Miraflores, in downtown Lima – the nation’s capital. A lot of spots in this area will cost you, but there are parks and markets and other places where you won’t have to part with vast sums in order to have fun. Here are the top things to see and do in Miraflores, Peru.
Held every Saturday in Parque Reducto, Bioferia sells a huge selection of organic produce – this open-air market has numerous stands with stalls selling organic fruit and vegetables. The local farmers and food vendors also sell high-quality artisanal products including Peruvian coffees, breads, cheeses and fresh preserves. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, you’ll be in seventh heaven – pick up appetizing bakery items to go so that you can have a picnic in the adjacent park.
