With courtesy of the Selina Miraflores hostel I had a nice 3+hr bike ride around Miraflores and Barranco area of Lima. The weather was perfect at 69 degF and clear blue skies. The cost at the hostel was $8 USD starting at 11:00am. Our guide was Luis and we had introductions for everyone in the group. There was a couple from Tel Aviv and one girl from Queens NY. After getting fitted for our bikes (I got a nice bike with gears) our first stop was at Kennedy Park nearby. Kennedy Park is named after John F Kennedy.
Miraflores is a rather upscale district of Lima. Cosmoplitan, chic and safe to walk. It's south of downtown Lima and safe to walk. I went for a walk using the straightest path to the coast which led me to the Larcomar mall which I couldn’t resist checking out. It’ right along the cliffs where a long pedestrian and bike path runs up/down the coast. The cliffs run high and for miles.
Selina Miraflores is hotel/hostel located in the heart of the Miraflores area of Lima. A quote from their website. “Selina provides guests with beautiful places to stay, travel, and work abroad indefinitely. Plus, we use our in-depth local knowledge to create thousands of authentic activities and experiences in over 145 destinations worldwide” .The prices are low, accommodations modest, and services are exemplary. I got a private room for $39 USD/night. I chose this place for the location to a few places I had bookmarked, the good reviews, and the pricing.
