Lima Hotels in November
Casa Republica Barranco
The Barranco district is a trendy and bohemian alternative to the bright lights of Miraflores and the Casa Republica Barranco is a boutique hotel in a beautiful 1920's mansion that combines high quality with good value. It sits in a quiet street but is close to all the bars and restaurants you will need. There's a bar and restaurant, free WIFI and 24-hour reception and room service.
The Hotel Ferre is as close to the ocean as you can get in Lima's Miraflores district. It combines traditional and modern, with Peruvian décor combining with a more modern look and is popular with both business and holiday travellers. There is a restaurant with Pacific views, a bar, small gym and many of the bright, well equipped rooms also look out over the ocean. All the delights of Miraflores are right on the doorstep.
You get a choice of three Miraflores destinations with the Jose Antonio group: a deluxe upmarket hotel, a mid-range alternative or apartments geared towards business travellers, all in Miraflores. The mid-range Jose Antonio is a good choice, with a great restaurant, a huge, comfortable bar, a gym, outdoor pool and terrace and free WIFI. You will get a good night's sleep too thanks to excellent soundproofing.
The Qorianka Hotel is away from the tourist hubbub in the Lince district, five minutes from the historic centre of Lima, the business district of San Isidro and bustling Miraflores. The hotel is mid-range and has 65 comfortable and spacious room and a restaurant and bar with panoramic city views serving great Peruvian food, snacks and light bites with a full range of drinks.
Bars and Restaurants
Hotel B is a boutique hotel in a colonial mansion in Barranco that is often praised as one of Lima's best. But even if you don't stay there its lovely restaurant is worth a visit. The wine list is huge and their in-house sommelier will help you make choices to go with the mix of classic Peruvian and modern Mediterranean dishes on the menu. Alternatively, just pop in for a drink and savour the period atmosphere at the wood panelled bar.
This is another of Lima's iconic eateries, serving sandwiches made of fried or roasted pork with a Chinese twist in the busy centre of Lima for more than 50 years. Known as a 'sangucheria' El Chinito has earned such a reputation for its chicharrón or chanchito asado sandwiches that it has expanded in recent years, adding more branches across Lima. Stick with the atmospheric original and if you like what they serve you can now get them delivered to your hotel.
Dishes such as cocina criolla are home-cooking staples and it's still rare to find them on restaurant menus. But Isolina owner Jose Del Castillo has made it into a thriving business at his wood-panelled Barranco restaurant, which attracts large groups of locals for long lunches and dinners. Try the tortillas de sesos, a Spanish-style omelette with calf brains or sangrecita, which is seasoned and fried chicken blood.
Sibaris Resto Bar
The regulars at the snug and buzzing Sibaris restobar are representative of this trendy neighbourhood. The bar serves local craft beers, wines and a range of cocktails and there is also a tempting menu of snacks and light bites to soak up the alcohol. These include dishes such as lentils with caramelized pork, fried bananas, beef tartare with crunchy bread and thin crust pizzas with a range of toppings.
Things to do in Lima in November
Gaze at the stars
Lima's Planetarium is the grandly-named Museo Planetario y Observatorio del Morro Solar and when the skies are not cloudy it offers visitors the chance to gaze into the heavens and learn about stars, planets and our solar system. There's a museum too with antique and modern stargazing devices, photos and other items, plus some stunning audio-visual displays.
The tiny city of Mini Mundo in Jesus Maria will appeal to children, with its recreation of Lima's most famous buildings and other famous Peruvian sights in strikingly accurate miniature replicas. This mini city contains more than 150 architectural models, including 1200 tiny residents and more than 400 vehicles driving around the streets. The grandest examples include the entire central square of Plaza de Armas and Lima's airport.
Visit a Pena
If you want an authentic Lima experience, a visit to one of the city's many peñas will provide it. These small bars, often tucked away behind closed doors, serve pisco sours and other drinks against a noisy backdrop of traditional Creole music, sung to the accompaniment of guitars and a percussion instrument called a cajón. Try Brisas del Titicaca in central Lima, Peña del Carajo in Barranco or ask your hotel concierge for a recommendation.
Lima at night
Take time for a leisurely stroll around Lima at night, when the city is cooler and ablaze with lights. Stroll on the boardwalk, visit the historical centre, where all the buildings are spectacularly lit, or head for the ancient ruins of Huaca Pucllana which look completely different after dark. Stop off at a cosy bar or two and don't forget Miraflores, which is a sea of lights. Take care not to stray into quiet side roads away from the main street. You can even take a look at the night tours in Lima.
