central lima

If you like old colonial building, the center of Lima would be interesting.

Although, I recommend not to go alone after dark.
During the daytime, its fine.
Although, its the citycenter, prices are cheap.

plaza san miguel

I live close to Plaza San Miguel.

It´s a big shopping center and you can find there anything.
For nice clothes for a great price, go to Ripleys.

Don´t eat there. However food is excellent, the price are high.
There´s a nice chifa around the corner.

cheaper in Amsterdam

I flew in Mai from Amsterdam to Lima and I bought Davidoff Cool water for my wife. I worked at Amsterdam airport years ago and I can confirm that perfum costs less over there.

Dont buy perfums in Peru. Just like anything else that has been imported,
its very expensive.

dont unblock your celphone

I brought my celphone from Europe last year.

After consulting, I came to the conclusion that it´s cheaper to buy a new one.

I bought a new phone for 79 soles including 20 soles of credit.

Unblocking a phone would cost you around 100 soles.
