The Green Ruta Recomendable actually consists of two routes operated by the same company, SO16 and SO18. They have the same terminal in San Miguel and they both go to San Bartolo, one of the beach towns south of Lima along the Panamericana Sur. The majority of their route is identical. However, in Pueblo Libre, the SO16 passes through Avenida Bolivar and avenida Brasil, whereas the SO18 goes along avenida Venezuela and avenida Arica. They join hands again at the Plaza Bolognesi in Centro de Lima and from there they continue along avenida Grau and Circunvalacion to the Panamerican Sur all the way to San Bartolo.

Most tourists stay in Miraflores when they are in Lima. So this post will explain how to get around in Miraflores. Miraflores is home to a number of sights, for example: the Faro (firehouse), the Huaca Pucllana (pre-Inca temple) and the Parque Kennedy. Apart from sightseeing, Miraflores is great for shopping. Many tourists head over to Larcomar (modern style) or the Indian Markets in Petit Thouars (indigenous art). A detailed map of Miraflores can be found on the back side of the Rutas Recomendables Combi Map, and all the above places are clearly marked.

The light blue Ruta Recomendable is La Sesosa. Its code is NO02 and it is running between Ancon and Surco, following the Panamericana Norte until Avenida Ugarte, after that following the avenidas Salaverry, Ejercito and Angamos. The last stop is UPC in Monterrico. I once took La Sesosa from UPC to Ancon on a Sunday morning and it took 2,5 hours.
La Sesosa is great for traveling north from Miraflores. But it is also good for traveling to the airport from Miraflores. One would have to transfer at Av Sanchez Carrion (Pershing) to take the IO06 towards the airport. The transfer at this point involves less walking then the transfer at Av Brasil with Javier Prado or the transfers at Av Arequipa (blue line OM23) with Javier Prado and the Via Expresa (Metropolitano) with Javier Prado. So I usually prefer to take La Sesosa, even though it might seem to be a bit of a detour.
This is the flagship map of Rutas Recomendables in A3 format. When you buy this map, you get a high-resolution version, which can be printed on A3 size paper for perfect legibility.
