Parque Kennedy

Named after the former U.S. President, this park in the heart of Miraflores is a nice quick stop while in the area. Mostly known for being home to countless stray cats, this small park also serves as a stage for many street performers, food vendors and a daily flea market.

Do & See

Kick off your visit to Lima with a walk around the colorful and bustling city center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site--home to many historical buildings and churches. Delve into the country's rich past in one of the many museums around. Once you’ve soaked up the local history, explore the city's districts: Miraflores on the beachfront is the trendy one, while Barranco is more artsy and bohemian. Day trips to ancient sites in the surroundings are always fun too.
