Fodor's Expert Review Parque del Amor

Miraflores Park/Playground Fodor's Choice

You could imagine you're in Barcelona when you stroll through this lovely park designed by Peruvian artist Victor Delfin. Like Antoni Gaudí's Park Güell, the park that provided the inspiration for this one, the benches are decorated with broken pieces of tile. In keeping with the romantic theme—the name translates as "Park of Love"—the mosaic includes sayings such as Amor es como luz ("Love is like light"). The centerpiece is a massive statue of two lovers locked in a passionate embrace. The park affords a sweeping view of the Pacific, and on windy days, paragliders take off from an adjacent green.
