Hipodromo de Monterrico

Lima’s Horse Race Track is a choice If you want to do something different with your family while in Lima.  Lima’s only Horse Race Track called Monterrico hipodromo. This is Horse Race Track was built in 1959 and open to the public in 1960. It is at a great distance from Lima Center. Located in Derbi Avenue s/n door 3 in the District of Surco.

The Monterrico Hipodromo’s entrance is free for the public but there is a for members only, with a bar and restaurant. The public entrance is not luxury, it is a local area and free of charge. There,  you can see people really passionate about horse races. The public area has a great view of the Horse race Track wherever you are. Plus it has a huge screen. You won’t miss a bit.

Inside the track, you can buy the race info horse as time and horse numbers. We watch a couple of races before betting on it.  There are lots of local folks betting. My dad is a huge horse race track and this was kinda a family thing to do.

My kids really enjoy watching the races, eating popcorn and playing on the little play area. It was the first time they saw a horse race as well as mine. Crazy right? but growing up I just saw this on TV. I hope you enjoy this gallery and learn what to expect there.
