This beach shows you a very different "Peru" as it shows you only the wealthy and beautiful people. The beach is a (yes, sure, beautiful) gated community and even parents let personnel push their babies' strollers (hey, it is 2016, not 1900!?!). The whole "town"...More

It's great if you want to stay for the summer with your family. You have to rent a house in a condominium. Only a couple of hotels. The condominiums in Asia are expensive but safe and complete. They have inside pools, parks, some have restaurants,...More

This beach community which is about one hour away from Lima has many upscale private homes and a center for clubs and restaurants. It is not a destination for tourists and you should only go as a side trip with a local.

Asia is more of a Limenos weekend attraction for people who want some beachtime R&R, than a tourist destination, with most people renting villas at the many private enclaves (we stayed at Sol y Mar). Big, wide expanses of beach that feel almost desert-like and...More

This beach and its sorroundings is really nice, but you need to be a local guy to appreciate it and enjoy it. If you are a guest of a friend do not miss it, if not, do not waste your time.

Nice beach in Asia but the rest of the place is not so good. It's mostly a group of gated communities on the beach with no beach access for non-property holders and the main attraction seems to be a cheesy shoppy mall.

Best thing is to take an Uber. But you will not be able to go to the beach if you don't have a house there. If you just want to shop, there are better places in the city...

Yes, it is a very easy drive straight down the PanAmerican Highway. When you see a the Wong grocery store on the right hand side of the road, you are pretty much in Asia. If I may ask, have you rented a place there?
