Rutas Recomendables »
The Orange Ruta Recomendable used to be the NM33 line. Recently it has changed code to NO101. According to a cobrador of one of their buses, this is due to fact that since renovating the fleet most of the units are buses and not micros. So they had to apply for a new license, which was granted under a new code but for the same route. This story is probably correct, because their fleet indeed consists almost entirely of new, big buses.
The Nueva America (or Transnasa) is the 3rd important Ruta Recomendable crossing Miraflores (the others are the OM23 and the NO02). The NO101 is crossing Miraflores East-West, through avenida Benavides – Pardo – Ejercito. But essentially this line is a North-South connection between Carrabayllo in the far north and San Juan de Miraflores on the southside of town.
How to go to...? »
From Miraflores the Ruta Recomendable to take to Centro de Lima is the OM23 (blue line). Get on at Ovalo de Miraflores (Parque Kennedy) or anywhere along Avenida Arequipa.
The ride to Centro de Lima will take about 20-30 minutes and will cost S./1.20 if you get on at Ovalo de Miraflores or S./1.00 if you get on at Angamos or closer towards Centro de Lima. The price of the boleto (ticket) is somewhat arbitrary, so you may be charged anywhere between S./1.00 or S./1.50. Never pay more than S./1.50.
Get off at Avenida Grau for the Museo de Arte de Lima (MaLi). From here everything is within walking distance. The next block north is Real Plaza, a shopping center that includes Starbucks. The Sheraton Hotel is also here, as well as the Estacion Central for the Metropolitano.
