Barranco with its old traditional houses, its bohemiam atmosphere and relaxed attitude is great for visitors. We went to the Mirador where you have a great view of the ocean front, walked along the Puente de los Suspiros and around its square and Av Pedro...More
It’s a place you MUST visit. You should walk alongside the sea to the Puente de los Suspiros. Go to the library. Try to eat at a small place La Posada del Mirador with the sea view to the yacht club. Walk through the small...More
My wife stayed in Miraflores and visited Lima city. We moved to Barranco when I arrived in Peru. This district has been the absolute highlight of our trip so far. Lovely old buildings being renovated and reinvigorated, great vibrancy with the abundance of fabulous street...More
Enjoyed a morning of walking through this neighborhood with its many large colorful murals on many buildings and walls. Visited local artist shops as well. Had great cerveche in a restaurant clearly enjoyed by the locals. A much more relaxed neighborhood than Miraflores.
Our Bike tour included time in Barraco. Went back another evening for food and drinks.
Each place a different color to brighten up what is often a cloudy place. Street art a bridge with history where you can make a wish and brew pub and...More

Seems like you have plenty of input already. Checking them all I will stuck with the advice of HOLDcrypt as a walk from Miraflores to Barranco, and perhaps take a cab back to your hotel. That will work for a short stay if that is what you have in mind. But keep in mind what follows, as you can do this walk in reverse of course, from Barranco to Miraflores stead.
The main atraction in Miraflores is LARCOMAR Shopping Center and its walkways close to the cliffs on the way to Barranco (and viceversa).
Pretty good restaurants are available in both districts with similar prices. Nightlife happens in both districts but more in Barranco with more affluence of young people to keep it in mind.
But, if you preferred quiet nights, don't stay in the busy Barranco whose nightlife is great but noisy.
Due the short distance between both districts, isn't a big deal where you stay but consider that Miraflores has the better (most expensive as well) hotels with quiet nights warranty.
Now, if you are after the fun, expecting to stay late every night, Barranco is your place. Get up late and have great traditional breakfast by stepping out your place will happens in Barranco counting with its great set up, which is much better than Miraflores in terms of atmosphere and architectural/nature flavor.
If you keep looking and find a hotel in Barranco with triple glass windows, and soundproof walls -Go there with my blessings and visit Miraflores as a plus.

Peruvian food in general has animal products, so unless you cook it yourself, very hard to find vegan food in Barranco. In other places in Lima you might. But because our food is incredible and world wide known, you might... More
