Interaction with Guests
If you would like to share your life with a Peruvian family, you will be more than welcome in our home.
One of my brothers speaks a little English and Russian. The rest of my family is learning English with our airbnb guests. We also like to do language exchange. English-Spanish. We think it will be a good immersion course. I hope you can have fun practicing Spanish!
Look forward to hosting you!

Ronald was a great host! Great communication from the first email sent. He goes above and beyond ensuring that his guests are his number one priority. Ronald arranged a taxi to pick me up at the airport upon arriving around midnight, and then again in the morning to get to the bus station. I highly recommend him as a host as Airbnb needs more hosts like Ronald. As for the accommodations, there were as advertised, cozy, clean, and available Wi-Fi.
It was perfect for our short stay in Lima. Ronald was accommodating and helpful.
It was my first time using airbnb, but definitely not the last, Ronald gave the best impression of this new way of travelling, a very nice apartment right in the middle between citycenter and airport. We got hot water, towels, clean apartment and a very nice host family. We will give Ronald our best revommendations
Un apartamento cerca del aeropuerto, con todos los requerimientos necesarios para nuestra estadía, muchas gracias a Ronald y a su mamá por todas las indicaciones, recomendaciones durante nuestro día de estadía.
Me sentí muy bien, la casa es amplia y tranquila
Ronald came down to greet me at the gate when I arrived around midnight, and helped me sort out how much I owed the taxi driver in soles. The apartment was as described, and quite clean and comfortable. There were a couple bottles of water, juice, and some fruit, which was nice. I stayed longer than most would, I think (10 days). It is close to the airport, but that doesn't really save you money on taxi fare, due to airport fee. It would save you time in a city with very heavy traffic.
Tell your taxi driver he will probably have to drive around the block, as entrance to the street from Av. Colonial is usually closed. Ronald's place is close to the avenue, and you could walk it easily if you don't have much luggage.
Ronald seems like a very busy guy, and while he was helpful and polite, he didn't really have time to chat much. His mother was really nice, but I wasn't always sure I was following her directions correctly, with my rusty Spanish.
There is plenty of public transit near the apartment (I'm including privately-owned taxis, colectivos, and combis), but there is no route information, and I found it confusing. The apartment is reasonable close to the historic center of Lima, but far away from the business and popular tourist centers of Lima (San Isidro, Miraflores, Barranco). It took me an hour each way to reach Miraflores, using a colectivo and the bus rapid transit.
In short, a nice place for a short pre- or post-airport visit, or a visit to the historic center. Not ideal for a longer stay or visiting other parts of the city.
If you do visit, and have time, take a walk back away from Av. Colonial towards the west. It was interesting for me to see how Lima's moderate income neighborhoods have been "gated" (limited automobile access) and made to feel calm and relatively safe even so close to a very busy avenue.
Ronald was a great host and filled me in on everything I needed to know when I arrived. I stayed at his place at the start of a bike tour and it was very easy to bike there from the airport, there's also a lot of bike lanes around Ronald's place.
The apartment itself was comfortable quiet, and had everything I needed.

About the Host, Ronald
My family and I are opening our house to travelers. We like to interact with people from different cultural background and make our airbnb guests feel as they are part of our family.
We also would like to share what we know about Lima and where to go in Lima. This cultural exchange gives us the opportunity to tell you who we are. We like to keep contact with international people and hear things about their travelings.
We offer you a safe, quiet, and nice environment.
Some advantages of my home are:
My house is well located between the Lima International Airport and Downtown Lima. We are 15-20 minutes by taxi to downtown Lima. Some places, we suggest, to see in downtown are:
- Cathedral of Lima (Catacombs of Lima)
- The Franciscan Monastery
- The Government Palace
- Malecon del Rio (Pier of the river)
You can also take the panoramic bus and you can compare the old Lima and new Lima, that has over 8 million inhabitants. We can consider it as a busy city.
Peru is three times the size of California. So you have a lot to see other than Cusco and Puno.
If you like eating, you should check out Peru’s annual food festival in Lima, Mistura, (more than 300,000 attendees). The next one is in September 2015. You can spend all day in this huge fair. Seafood, Steaks, rotisserie chicken, pork and lamb (and many vegetarian options too!).
Drinks like Pisco Sour, Purple Corn juice (Chicha Morada) and Fermented Corn juice (also called Peruvian/Inca beer) or Chicha de Jora are a must.
Desserts made of dark chocolate, rice pudding with purple corn pudding, and ice creams like Zambito are just delicious.
If you have any questions, please email us. We are here to help you.
