I used to live near Av Las Artes and it is nice. Although it's not particularly cheap, I found the apartments tend to be noticeably bigger than what you find in districts like Miraflores for a similar price. And there's the new shopping centre La Rambla which replaced an old Plaza Vea with a new cinema, restaurants. In fact, round that whole area, there are lots of nice restaurants and places to go out. I specifically like Sarcletti's. San Borja Sur is a bit quieter and more residential. Towards the Surquillo end of San Borja, prices drop a bit, paticularly from Aviacion and Primavera, so if you're looking for any bargains, that's probably the area to look in.

La Rambla is nice. There a very nice coffee place accross the road where they sell delicious pastries.The place looks very posh but the prices are democratic.
It's the first place so far I encountered in Lima that has a good Irish coffee.

Dear Captcosmic,

I lived 2 months ago on Av. San Borja Norte a few metres from el Pentagonito, great area.

Now I relocated to Los Angeles, but still working with clients doing business in Peru.

Have a great day.

Best,

As said previously the Pentagonita area of San Boja is worth looking at. Lots of greenery, water features, places to exercise, kids areas, and a short trip to places like El Polo and Jockey plaza. You can get to Miraflores pretty quickly by taxi as well, maybe 15 minutes with little traffic.
