Tienda y centros comerciales en Lima

El jockey plaza es uno de los centros comerciales
Mas importantes de la ciudad en donde no solo encontraras un espacio de diversión y ocio Sino donde podrás disfrutar de su arquitectura

Hace algunos días inauguraron la nueva parte del Mall el boulevar del Jockey Plaza.

La inauguración del boulevar Jockey Plaza fue un lujo. La verdad y de todo corazón les tengo que decir que estaba sorprendida. Wow. El lugar quedó increíble. De un nivel espectacular y ayer la gente del Jockey Plaza ( felicitaciones) tuvo muchas razones para celebrar. Han llegado marcas como CArolina Herrera, Salvatore Ferragamo, Armani Exchange, Juicy Couture, y marcas locales también han abierto sus puertas como Kuna y Viviane Fiedler. El cóctel estuvo estupendo, con demostración en vivo de outftis de las marcas presentes ( buena Larrea- CHoy Kay); de hecho luego se llenó de gente ( y eso que el local era inmenso). Pero bien, más que bien. Un aplauso para Lima que está creciendo a pasos gigantes. Y vayan para allá, les aseguro quedarán sorprendidos, como todos ayer.

The kitchen in my apartment at Ave. 28 de Julio
I booked my first apartment in Lima through an online, 3rd party service.

The simple, modern 1-bedroom apartment in trendy Miraflores was perfect fit for me, both in terms of size and budget.

It was also perfectly located between the cliffside shopping center of Larcomar, and Parque Kennedy. Plus, across the street were 4 quality restaurants, a pharmacy, and several ATM’s.

The check-in process was straightforward. I met up with Giancarlo of Lima 4 Rent in the building’s lobby, and we then went up to the apartment together.

Giancarlo whipped out his iPad, and after a quick check of the place, including the Wi-Fi, I paid for my full stay up front in cash.

[US Dollars are the preference, as a markup is added if you pay in Peruvian Soles because he then needs to change them back to Dollars anyways. Luckily, this is easy to do as most ATM's in Lima dispense US Dollars.]

Living room
My 8 nights in the apartment went by quickly, and I actually ended up renting a different, 2-bedroom apartment for 4 nights right before leaving for Cusco. This time, I skipped the 3rd party site and booked direct with Giancarlo.

When I checked into the second apartment, the Wi-Fi wasn’t working, and after some troubleshooting, Giancarlo determined the problem to be with the router.

I was anxious about paying several hundred dollars for an apartment without working Wi-Fi, but he assured me it’d be fixed by the following morning, if not that night.

I paid, and crossed my fingers. True to his word, Giancarlo delivered a new router a few hours later, and I was up and running with Wi-Fi that worked perfectly the rest of my stay.

When it came time for my flight to Cusco, Giancarlo once again made it easy on me.

He offers rides to the airport for $25, which is more than you’ll pay a taxi off the street, but I appreciated the added security of a private ride given I was traveling with all my stuff.

And, it’s just easier to handle the check-in or check-out process when the person is also transporting you to the airport.

After Cusco, I paid for pick-up at the airport, as I was going to be renting the original apartment for a few weeks before Christmas.

I slipped back into it as if I’d been living there for years. And as I write this, I’ve already put a deposit down on the apartment for the week after Christmas (through New Year’s).

I was really pleased to continue paying the same weekly rate of $360, even though I’d be renting around the holidays.

View from the balcony
When all is said and done, I will have rented two apartments for a total of 4 weeks through Giancarlo and Lima 4 Rent, and I’m happy to recommend them to friends visiting the city as well.

Their website lists the available apartments, along with photos and rates to make picking the one that’s right for you as easy as possible. Terms and Conditions are clearly listed on the reservations page.

Special Promotion: Pay for an 8-night stay, and you’ll get a free night if you rent from them again in the future. The offer is good on the condition that you book at least 5 consecutive nights on your second visit.

Lastly, I want to mention Giancarlo has social media covered.

You can learn more about Lima, as well as the apartments and company, by joining them on Facebook, following the “Info Llama” on Twitter, and/or reading the blog.

Disclosure: I received 2 complimentary nights in exchange for writing an honest review of my experience.

Canta rana Cebicheria (Singing frog) in Barranco

A relaxed and informal place that looks almost like the interior of a garage and is immensely popular with locals, "the Singing Frog" is the very definition of a neighborhood cevichería. You might not guess it from the outside, but it's one of the best spots in town for ceviche and fresh seafood in a classic coastal manner. The menu lists 15 types of sea bass, including one stuffed with langoustines, as well as infinite varieties of ceviche. The traditional ceviche (big enough for two) is served on a flat plate with heaps of purple onions, some choclo (maize), and a wedge of camote (sweet potato). The best way to wash it down is with a chilled pitcher of chicha morada. The shacklike interior is decorated with simple wood tables, and the walls are festooned with fútbol (soccer) paraphernalia. For a high dose of local color and excellent seafood, Canta Rana's a perfect lunch spot.

This is real comment that I found on the web We really agree with this..:)

Mascotas en Apartamentos temporales en Lima

En nuestros apartamentos temporales en Miraflores Lima Peru podemos encontrar muchas actividades para distraerse en compañía de su mascota en su traslado por asignación temporal o en sus vacaciones en Lima

En su forma más sencilla, el circuito de agility consiste en un determinado número de obstáculos, en donde un entrenador gratuito le giara y diseñará el orden que el perro deberá seguir para así completar la prueba conforme al reglamento.

Los circuitos son lo suficientemente complicados para que el perro no pueda terminarlos correctamente sin dirección humana. Durante la competencia, el guía decidirá las estrategias a seguir para dirigir al perro a través del recorrido, combinando velocidad y precisión ya que ambas son igualmente importantes. Existen varias técnicas que ayudan a compensar la posible diferencia de velocidad humana y canina, fuerza ó debilidad entre los tantos perros y sus manejadores.

Los esperamos en Lima www.
