Tourism
Mariel Hotel

Mariel Hotel is located in the heart of Miraflores, near the several tourist attractions, museums and restaurants.

Kennedy Park

This park is located in the heart of Miraflores, 2 blocks from Mariel Hotel. To its northwest are the handicraft markets and to the southeast the "Calle de las Pizzas". It is also surrounded by several hostels, cafes, bars, restaurants and the Matriz Virgen Milagrosa Church. It often hosts public exhibitions on weekends, ranging from craft fairs to paintings and live theatre. Perhaps one of the most curious features of the park is that it has a large cat population, cared for by volunteers.

Larcomar

Along the malecón in Miraflores is Larcomar, a tourist shopping center. The entire complex is built on a cliff. Larcomar has impressive views of the sea, where you can enjoy numerous restaurants offering Peruvian food, as well as several American franchises serving everything from donuts to ribs. There is also a movie theater, bowling and pool hall, and plenty of clothing stores. This is a great place to spend your last hours in Lima before taking a taxi to the airport.

Huaca Pucllana

Lima has a large number of historical ruins, known locally as huacas, which can be spotted in many neighborhoods. The Pucllana Temple, or Huaca Pucllana, is located in the city's upscale district. This adobe ceremonial center was likely built around 500 A.D., during the cultural height of Lima's history. Much of the site has been restored and excavations continue to uncover mummies.

The ruins are accessible from Wednesdays to Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The last tour starts 30 minutes before closing. The tickets are $2.50 for adults, and half off for children and students.

Inca Handicraft Market

Located in front of the hotel, you get the typical souvenirs, nice artisan craftworks, beautiful silver jewelry and other silverware, clothes made of Peru's famous alpaca, funny T-Shirts, pottery, paintings, wooden pieces, and much more from all over Peru.

Surquillo Market

A fascinating food-shopping experience is to visit the diverse Mercado de Surquillo where Limeños (residents of Lima) and many of the top chefs in town go to get fresh produce, seafood, meats and a wide array of kitchen implements.
The market in Surquillo can get crowded. And as opportunity makes the thief, we recommend leaving your valuables at the hotel.

Restaurants

Close to the hotel you can find restaurants like Panchita where typical Peruvian food is served. In La Lucha you can try the best sandwiches and juices. In La Mar is served the best fish and ceviche of Lima. La Hullaca has a museum to visit before lunch. Maido is one of the best restaurants in Latin América, with fusion kitchen. Central is one of the best restaurants of the world serving Peruvian and fusion food.
