A walk along the Costa Verde

November 4th, 2008

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there’s nothing nicer than a walk along the Lima’s Costa Verde on a sunny day. Big changes have been taking place over the past 5 years. The old historic but sadly decaying houses along the cliff front have been gradually pulled down and new apartment blocks built in their place, while the once ugly and unsafe cliff-top between the lighthouse in Miraflores and the district of San Isidro is now greener and wealthier than ever. Expensive apartments now overlook children’s play areas and green spaces with pristine pathways, benches, and flower gardens.

We took a walk from along all of Miraflores’s cliffs, from San Isidro to Surco. Photos below.
