Lima 1 day

we are arriving to Lima from Cusco around 9 am and our flight to US is a little past midnight. We are not going to have a lot of luggage and whatever we have we are planning to leave in a locker.
What would you recommend to see and do in Lima for a day? My thinking was that we should end up late afternoon in Miraflores so we can have a nice dinner before heading back to the airport around 9pm. Is it safe in a dark? how much time do we need to get to the airport? Is it easy to get a taxi from Miraflores?

You have enoug time to check out downtown (the main plazas, san francisco monastery, cerro san cristobal, eat lunch, or whatever you want), go to a museum if you;re into that, then head to miraflores in the afternoon and hang out in the parks along the cliffs or walk to the beach, sunset happy hour at larcomar).

Miraflores is fine at night, the area around the airport isn't. It easy to get a taxi, you can order one from uber. I think its 55 soles from miraflores. You don't need more than 45 minutes at that time of night (should be a bit less)...its an easy ride up the circuito de playas.

Maybe an option would be to get a day tour. I used Taxi Lima Peru, which I found to be a very good private tour (the guy lived for many years in the US), and he'd be able to pick you up and drop you off at the airport, saving you a bit of hassle (and also keep your luggage in the car). Only word of caution is I would pick the restaurant myself as tends to favour huge buffet style restaurants over the nicest restaurants (La Mar would be a great call for lunch). http://www.taxilimaperu.com/

I would second the suggestion of a morning walk around the old town, nice lunch in Miraflores, perhaps a look at Barranco (MATE - Mario Testino Museum, and finally a quick visit at Huaca Pucllana. Otherwise, you can fit in the Magic Water Circuit (earliest show is 7:15PM).

+1

This is essentially what we did, and had more time in Lima. Its really all we felt one needs to do there though. Check out the old city, then head to Miraflores. Stop at Huaca Pucllana on the way for a bonus point. End your night at a restaurant on the beach (Larcomar if you'd like extra easy taxi access- pick one up at the JW Marriott across the street, the EasyTaxi stand in Larcomar, or use Uber- either with cell service or the free wifi throughout Larcomar. Yes, you can call Uber without cell service during the ride).

Lima 1 day

I just arrived back in US from Peru, had a 1 day tour from Lima Cabs. Also deserves high recommendation. We hit the ruins in Miraflores, lunch, and then did the historic tour of downtown followed by dinner at Museo Larco. All was great. Can recommend Museo Larco for both content and the restaurant there is fantastic. Found the driver/guide from Lima Cabs to be extremely knowledgable and helpful. Prices were quite reasonable for an hourly rate, but they also have pre-designed itineraries as well.

You could try to see the city on your own, but time is not on your side. Why not get a local guide to show you the important things and cut down on the guesswork regarding directions, parking and transportation?

One of the best tours I have taken anywhere was in Lima by a young man by the name of Aaron Paiva Leyton.

I do agree about Museo Larco. It's a must, specially if you enjoys museums.

Yes Miraflores is safe at dark.

And I guess ruins in Miraflores is Huaca Pucllana, good choice too.

If you are a foodie, then spend the day eating. The hype of Astrid and Gaston is worth it. Also try Panchita, a Gaston restaurant. Tons of amazing places to eat in Lima.

I was there for 5 days and spent all of my time touring restaurants. I'm probably going to do a weekend trip to Lima just to cross off my restaurants from my list.
