Plaza San Martin Reviews & Ratings
There are restaurants nearby, street artists and expect to see a lot of people. If you're a tourist, beware of your personal belongings. The park is safe, but the places around it aren't as much since it's a very popular place. Make sure to take pictures!
Foto taken from balcon de Club NACIONAL de Peru. Exclusive club rated in top ten of gentlemen's club worldwide. Something very especial.
Great food, delicious variety for every palate. Awesome environment, the music and people are vibrant. International drinks available and a major foreign crowd for tourists. It's very easy to move around without any hassle.
Great place to visit. Friendly security and police, they really go out of their way for tourists. Worth a visit!
A good place to start or finish your city tour trough the historic architecture of Lima. But smell like jail at some points, one star less for that.
