Lima Streetmaps

Postby johnstar » Sun Feb 17, 2008 8:28 am

Hola a todos,

Does anyone know how to get hold of streetmaps for Miraflores, Surco, San Isidro etc in Lima whether it be via internet or from an online bookstore as i havent yet been able to find a site that has in depth streetmaps and i wasnt able to get hold of one when i was in Lima a few years ago.

I will be living in Miraflores fairly soon and need to quickly find my roots.

Many Thanks )

I have found this online map of Lima to be quite useful, but cumbersome.

I have found it to be very accurate.

The RepSol gastations (grifos) arecurrently selling updated street guides too Lima. I saw that they were 10 soles with the purchase of 20 soles of gas, but I do not know how much they are without a gas purchase.

Also, South American Explorers sells a few different versions:

Under the menu "Ver" you can switch to satellite and choose other options. It's just not a good map to search streets

I got a very good map a few years ago at Wong's (Centro Commercial). I have not seen it available anywhere else (even other Wong stores). It was produced by
Editorial Lima 2000 SAC
Av. Arequipa 2625.
(51 1)440-3486
They have a web site: http://www.lima2000.com.pe/

Thanks, Americorps, that one is by far the best I have seen.

The Lima 2000 maps are very usefull. We sell them in our hotel and personally I like the design.
The also sell a 'taxi' map, for the taxidriver. It has all Lima in one foldable carton for S/. 7. Also they have nice Tourist maps of Lima, of Cuzco Arequipa and sure some other cities.
Their Peru map as several extra maps printed on the back of the major cities.

This is one of the first things I did when I got to Peru. Looking for a good map can be quite a shore. If you are going to use the internet you may want to give ubicate.net a try. They have a very good system. Maybe better than guiacalles. You may also want to give maps.google.com a shot (just type lima, peru in search).
Otherwise the Lima 2000 guide is the best. Make sure you get the latest edicion (2005 i think). A bookseller told me not too long ago that a new edition is coming out soon, but who knows. You may want to go their website and give them a call. Good luck
