Oceanside Shopping & Dining in Lima Peru

Oceanside Shopping & Dining in Lima Peru

The Miraflores district of Lima, Peru, is a decidedly more upscale neighborhood than other parts of Lima. There, across the street from a towering Marriott hotel, on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is an open air shopping mall.

Normally, I wouldn’t dream of going to a mall while visiting another country. But this one sounded too unique to pass by.

Sadly, the mall is very American. Only the prevalence of Spanish and Spanish speakers reminded us that we were in Peru, and not Hawaii. There is a Banana Republic, Aeropostale (called Aero 87), Brooks Brothers, Burger King, Chilis, Converse, Gap, Guess, Hush Puppies, KFC, MAC Cosmetics, Nike, Nine West, Pinkberry, Pizza Hut, Quiksilver, Radio Shack, Samsonite, Starbucks, Steve Madden, Swatch, Sunglass Hut, TGI Fridays, North Face, Timberland, and Ugg, to name more than a few.

We did not shop there, but we did enjoy a meal at Pardos Chicken. The food was tasty and the view was magnificent, even on the overcast day that we visited.

Afterwards we strolled through the mall and found a few overlooks from which to take photos of the ocean and beach.
