A place of beautiful people, doing their very best to live at the Oceanside in Lima. An artist’s enclave, a tourist draw, at least younger tourists, the center of mural art for Lima, and one of the communities on the coast of Lima. 10 degrees cooler than downtown in this sweltering summer time, and the beaches are always full. I am only two blocks away from a stunning view of the sea, the sunset, and the downtown skyline. Much further to walk down, as you must descend hundreds of stairs down cliffs, then cross the highway on a bridge. But the reward is great, and when I’m exhausted I can always grab a cab home to Barranco’s center.
