Travel Blogs from Lima


A travel blog entry by tanyaconnor


I picked Miraflores to stay at the last minute. Lima is a huge city & from the guidebooks it wasn't really that clear where the best place to stay would be. I opted for the most popular place. In all honesty I'm not too sure why the tourists flock here; maybe its because it is as close to N.American that you can get down here. Its a posh suburb …

Arrived safe and sound!

A travel blog entry by sandmfarmer


Hi all,

I am sure you will be dying to know when we arrive so I thought I would let you know that we are in Peru safe and sound. We just arrived at our hostel (Red Psycho Llama). The train up to Gatwick was really easy and definately the best way to get there. We had an easyjet style flight to Madrid and then 12 hours to Lima. It was …

Loco Lima!

A travel blog entry by tamz.dinks.10

I've always wanted to learn Spanish, have a passion for music, dance and food, and enjoy nothing more than losing myself amongst all of natures designs in the form of a challenging hike.
My choice of destination was a no brainer... South America!
I left for my latino adventure May 31st 2013 with a less than thrilling budget of £2000. This …

Downtown Lima, Pisco Sour and Lilia

A travel blog entry by esseless

Although the computer screen is flickering blue at me, I feel quite motivated to write the next entry after a couple of people on Facebook seemed to enjoy it. So, here goes!

Lilia (my lovely friend from Barcelona who is from Lima originally) came to meet me at the hostel yesterday and we hopped on the Metropolitan to downtown Lima. It was …

    My original booking was for 3 days, I ended up staying for 6! The hostel is in Miraflores in a quiet side street near Kennedy park. The hostel is clean, safe & secure. The staff here were amazing, very friendly & helpful no matter what silly questions you asked them. For a first time introduction to South America then you couldn't get better than here.

    The hostel is clean and cheerful, with a strong emphasis on 'being green'. I particularly liked the lamp shades made out of plastic bottles and the pen holder made out of an old phone book! Speaking to the owner reveals that the name Red Psycho Llama is supposed to sound like recyclable!

    The staff speak excellent English and are the sweetest girls who have no problem with you sitting down and picking their brains for tips. The 35 soles for a mixed dorm per night is, however not in line with my particular budget but does include breakfast (an egg and onion roll with unlimited tea and coffee). The neighbourhood of Mirar Flores is convenient for most things with a good transport system if you don´t mind roughing it up in the local combi´s!

    Not a bad stay but a little pricey in my opinion.
