Centro Comercial Larcomar
The premier entertainment centre in Latin America, Larcomar is one of the places in Lima that you really should visit. Apart from being the newest and most fashionable shopping centre, it enjoys the best view of Miraflores bay. This is the place to find the finest clothes and accessories shops, designer sunglasses, the best swimsuits and cigars, as well as the best known international restaurants, such as Hard Rock Cafe, Carlos & Charlie's, Tony Romas and the renowned Cafe Cafe and Laritza D. With great discotheques, multiplex cinemas and a bowling alley, Larcomar is THE place to have fun.
Maybe I missed something, but it�s tiny!! The shoppingmall in my city of 40.000 is bigger. The atmosphere is ok, just a modern mall with a bayside view, but i was expecting more of the �great� Larcomar shoppingcentre! It�s basically 10 fastfood restaurants, a theater, a bowlingalley and about 15 shops not bigger than my closet. But as I said, maybe I missed something.....
While the place IS very americanized, its still a fun place to visit. The icecream booth, located in the center of the place is WONDERFUL :)and there are excellent views of the ocean from both outside and inside the stores (Especially Hard Rock Cafe)
i loved the maps of the plaza. great stores!!!!!!!!!! great food!!! just a great place. 10 thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you want to shop for huors thi sis th eplace to go!!! the stores hav anything you'll ever need!
Although I did kind of think that Larcomar is Americanized, its not like all of Lima is like that. Not every peruvian is able to leave the country to see another so I think it is nice for them to be able to see how we, as North Americans live, like my aunt for example. Its a nice place to go if you want to take your family for a walk and see some breathtaking views of the pacific below. However if you go to Lima and only stay in that area, you should be ashamed of yourself. That city alone offers so much beauty, and diversity. There is nothing about Peru I dont like accept for the fact that I'm not there all the time. It is worth seeing, I can't lie...
Larcomar is a very unique and beautiful place. You can sit at the cafes looking at the Pacific Ocean all year round, never concerned that it will rain. It never rains there. The temperature is always pleasant, never too hot or too cold. The shops and restaurants are charming. The stores sell Peruvian artesanias, handcrafted by local artist.
I have traveled all over the USA and I have never seen a place that compares to the feeling and the beauty of Miraflores, in Lima, Peru. To say that it is Americanized is an insult to this lovely place. We do not own every thing that is modern. There are modern things all over the world. we didn't invent every thing. That is the ugly American surfacing. Please, get smart and learn about other cultures.
I will go back over and over because it is a wonderful friendly place.
I think it's arrogant to label every place that is clean and well-lit as "Americanized." Larcomar is a great place to hang out and see the people and the Pacific Ocean. It is definitely modern and nice. Great shops, great people watching. The reviewer was right who said most visitors are Peruvian.
Peru is about a range of experiences. Go to Larcomar and see the metropolitan side of Peru, then take a bus to Cajamarca and take pictures of the campesinos and their adobe houses. Don't believe the negative review. Peru is not all about abject poverty, and it's stupid to want it that one-dimensional. There are areas where you can see a very simple life, but there are plenty of people here with more money than you, and Larcomar is one of the places they have built.
I loved Larcomar. It is a great example of metropolitan Lima. The shops are a little expensive, but the food is great and it's a really cool place to hang out. In just one year they have done so much with it. I wanted to visit the disco but never got the chance. One thing I love about it is the laid-back atmosphere and how safe it is. Perfect view of the ocean.
I just 'love' gringos who decide they don't like a place like Larcomar because it reminds them too much of the non-exotic, or the American 'other.' And maybe Larcomar wasn't really constructed to please Americans or other foreigners. What I know is that I was there with my Peruvian fiance� last week and the week before, and mostly I saw Peruvians, not foreigners, enjoying the place. It seems to me, then, as if Larcomar was made for Peruvians, not gringos. So if one doesn't like it, why, shoot, head up to picturesque Cuzco and Machu Picchu so that when you get back to that 'Toledo winter' or that 'Dallas summer' you'll feel like your vacation was sufficiently exotic to have been truly worthwhile. Meanwhile, when I'm not in Cuzco I'll take Larcomar any day over some crumbling mall in the U.S.!
It has everything you can imagine for a shopping centre and even more with the beautiful view of the beach.
The atmosphere is great and there is always something new to do, to visit or to eat.
The shops are excellent, you can find everything there.
