San Isidro is one of the cleanest and most protected areas of the Lima principalities. There are many Embassies (photos not allowed to be taken), some small, formerly single home residence and other large and very well guarded like the Russian and the Japanese Embassy. (American Embassy is huge and in another district).

Very beautiful and upscale area, but not within walking distance from main night attractions in Lima. If you stay in Miraflores it is more central, but nothing than Uber can't solve. Less than 10 soles rides for most locations

This is more upscale residential area of Lima, with nice housing and shopping mall. My preference is Miraflores, more open parks and ocean views. This is a safe area for restaurants and shopping.

Mainly a residential neighborhood but it houses the Museo Oro which is a fantastic museum. A private collection of one individual.
