Description

One of the neatest places to relax for a bit and enjoy the Miraflores Lima Pacific Ocean views is the Parque del Amor, which means, “Park of Love”. The main lookout at Parque del Amor boasts not only amazing views, but also artistic walls and a statue depicting two lovers in a romantic embrace. It was partly, if not mainly, due to the words of poet Antonio Cilloniz, that Miraflores decided to erect this statue of lovers. Cilloniz had expressed his desire for South American monuments that praised lovers instead of battle heros, stating that, “In the cities, they do not build monuments to lovers”. His influential words are found below the statue. The cliffs of Miraflores are not only ideal for admiring the ocean, but also for those seeking out Miraflores adventure travel. While Miraflores adventure travel packages most often take you out of the city, you can feed your adventurous side by hangliding from nearby cliffs, or by surfing on its beaches. Paragliders most often launch from the coastal ridge along the Costa Verde, or Green Coast, for a chance to view the sea to one side and the capital city of Lima to the other.
