8. Best Combination of Space, Location and Amenities: Airbnb
Some people prefer hotels, some people prefer private accommodations, and for many people, it depends on the destination, the purpose of the trip and the mood of the traveler. During my most recent visit, I found the array of apartments on Airbnb in Lima to be impressively diverse, and at a wide variety of price points. I stayed in two different apartments in the Barranco district; both were beautiful, modern, well appointed, and more reasonably priced than hotels with similar amenities.
