I am almost reluctant to write this review as it would be a shame if the tourist hoards invaded this delightful barrio. But as I’ve been here for two months I’ve found some of Surco’s secrets. Plaza de Armas is the cultural heart of Surco. It is a great place to spend some time and people watch. The locals are... More

Its a beautiful place, with a city fastness and great architecture. The people are all dressed well and on their way to seemingly important things. Great restaurants and cabs everywhere.

I stayed with a 'host family' during an ~12 day trip to Peru. Staying in Surco was fantastic and gave me "the full experience." It was a beautiful area and I felt very safe while there. The only complaint is the distance to anything touristy; but taxi's are cheap!

Surco is a very nice part of Lima, an upper/upper-middle class area of town. We felt very safe there (using common sense of course) and it seemed like a fairly central location to Miraflores, Barranco, and other parts of town our mission work took us to (SJL, La Victoria, Lucyana). Plenty of great food and generic shopping available in the... More

We stayed in Surco. It's a nice enough area with lots of shops and bars and is connected to the metro (which doesn't really go very far). It's a 45 minute walk from Miraflores and about a 40 minute walk from the centre if you take the metro for 4 stops. It's good if you don't mind walking (which we... More
