Amazingly friendly! Ronald was kind enough to let us back in when we were locked out and had a amicable demeanor that definitely made our stay even better.
Logistics are perfect and Ronald showed me around the downtown Lima. I should have told him my requests earlier (pickup service), but in general it's quite good...
Ronald was an excellent host- one of the best I've experienced. He was quick to communicate, and even showed me around some of the historic center of Lima, which gave me a good opportunity to practice my Spanish with him. The apartment was as pictured and everyone in his family was very nice. You'll need to take a taxi to see the major sites of Lima, but there are plenty if you stand by the road right outside of the gate. Highly recommended!
Mi mama y mi tia estan super contentas por la habitacion y las facilidades obtenidas
Ronald was very helpful and nice to us. He showed us where to go and buy any of our necessities, and welcomed us warmly even though we arrived very late. He was communicative, and the apartment was lovely.
Unfortunately, we arrived late in the night and the taxi drive highly recommended that we NOT travel to the address Ronald provided, because it is in Callao, not Lima. It was a sticky situation for us, but we decided to trust the cab driver.
We weren't able to contact Ronald again until the next day, when we had WiFi. We regretted standing Ronald up.
If you are women traveling at night, we don't recommend this location.

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.
