In this safe area, in the heart of Pueblo Libre, you can find everything: Bars (including the famous Taverna Queirolo), restaurants, a cheap local market with many exotic fruits (prices much lower than in Miraflores and Barranco), fruit juice stand, a park, playground for children, bus stop with connections to everywhere in Lima, as well as the famous Larco-Museum (pre-Columbian art, jewelry in gold and silver, etc.)
Pueblo Libre is also called the second Barranco. But it is however less touristy and things are much cheaper. You can find everything in this area: a local market, a shopping center, bars, cafes, park…
Our apartment is easily accessible by public transportation. The Avenida Brasil is only three blocks away from the apartment house and in this street you can find buses that go to all places in Lima.
