Limean district of Miraflores has turned into one of the many reasons for visitors to stop considering the city of Lima as a simple connection to the country’s most popular tourist destinations, such as Cusco, Brazil’s O Globo newspaper reports.

O Globo online version published an article in which compares Miraflores to Ipanema, one of the most popular and famous areas of Rio de Janeiro.

In the article, author Zean Bravo describes the district and makes a list of all the interesting places that visitors can find there, like Parque del Amor (Park of Love) and its amazing view to the Pacific Ocean.

It's one of the most charming districts of Lima. It’s a place for the city, as Ipanema is for Rio de Janeiro, wrote Bravo.

He also stresses that Larcomar, built overlooking the sea, has become a meeting point for entertainment and socialization. "It's worth walking along the coast of Miraflores. While going for a stroll, it’s common to run into someone wearing colorful shorts offering surf classes.”
