Lima has a benefit that many other world capitals do not. This city, home to more than 10 million people, is the only major city on the continent with an ocean view. Therefore, one of the best plans to take a break from work or study in this summer 2023 is to have a picnic outdoors and enjoy how part of the Pacific Ocean is dyed in orange and pink colors.

Nothing better than bringing a blanket, some food, drinks and watch the show. Although if you also want a space more like a forest, in this article of La República, we leave you the 5 most popular parks with and without sea view in Lima so you can organize this practical and free plan.

While traveling and discovering new spots in Lima you may need to use one of our mobile phone plans for tourists to have a tourist SIM card. In order to understand and find new adventures, here in PeruSIM. Find more about this important event.

1. La Pera or Bernales Park

It is one of the favorite places of many for its spectacular view of the sea. Located in the district of San Isidro, it offers two spaces to have your picnic, one in the green area of the park itself and the other on the boardwalk.

You can get there by public transportation by getting off at the intersection of Ejército and Salaverry Avenues, and walking until you see a security booth. You can stay at that point or go to the bushes, where you will find several green spaces to accommodate your picnic.

2. Malecón Cisneros

A must-see spot! This park, located in Miraflores, will also offer you impressive oceanfront views from 5 p.m. onwards. It has extensive spaces; however, try to arrive early so you can be in the best spot, as it is very popular with groups of friends and couples.

It is located very close to the intersection of Ejército, Santa Cruz and José Pardo Avenues, and can be reached by public transportation or on board your own vehicle.

3. Maria Reiche Park

This extensive park, whose name pays tribute to the German academic who dedicated her life to the research of the Nazca lines, is located on the Malecon de la Marina in Miraflores, and can be reached by bicycle, public or private transportation. Its strategic location will allow you to appreciate the sunset in a magical way listening to the sound of the sea.

Also, starting at 7 p.m. you can watch how the figures of the spider, the monkey or the hummingbird light up creating a special moment.

4. Reducto Park No. 2

This park has a large and quiet space surrounded by large trees, located at 490 Ramon Ribeyro Street, in Miraflores. It is perfect to spend a quiet afternoon or take some pictures. Please note that there is an admission schedule:

Monday to Friday from 8 a. m. to 5 p. m.

Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

5. El Olivar Park

This is another option if you want to have a picnic in a fresh space surrounded by nature. You can get there by public transportation on the blue corridor or by car. In its entire area there are about 22 species of birds and it has more than 1,500 trees, a forest in the heart of San Isidro district. Admission is 100% free and without schedules.

Finally, we know that you have to keep communication with your relatives and friends, that you need to be able to orient yourself in new cities, that you might need help with translation and that you might need to search for restaurants or hotels. That’s why with PeruSIM you can buy a SIM card including the data plan of your need without having to worry about high roaming costs.
