My closest friend here in DC is actually from Lima. He was born & raised there, but has lived here in the US for the past 20 years. He's actually in Lima right now for a few weeks to visit with his family. I'm hoping to head down there with him whenever he goes for another visit, though that probably won't be for another year. It's nice to see photos to get a sense of the area where he grew up. If I remember correctly, his family lives in Miraflores.

Miraflores is one of the most touristy districts of the city. Downtown Miraflores is lined with hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars and the like. Residential Miraflores, however, is mostly middle class, with some middle-upper class areas, especially by the coastal parkways.

San Isidro is a residential area, but it is actually Lima's most important financial district, so it caters more to businessmen than tourists. Most bank and business headquarters are located there. San Isidro is also residential, the majority of sanisidrinos are middle-upper class, along with some middle class and some upper class. This area of the city also boasts some of the best restaurants, cafes, and bars in the city, as well as upscale shopping areas, like Dasso and Conquistadores avenues.

However, most of Lima's wealthy population actually live on the eastern districts of the city, such as Surco and La Molina, in the wealthy neighborhoods of Cerros de Camacho, La Planicie, Las Casuarinas, and Rinconada del Lago. In those neighborhoods you'll find private estates and large mansions.

Manba you should go to Barranco (100% recommended), Chacarilla, Magdalena, Jesus Maria, Lince, Pueblo Libre, and La Punta. Those are other interesting areas to take pictures.

The big houses for the rich are actually away from the city to the East and South, in La Molina, Casuarinas, La Encantada. But thoses suburban areas are also close to poor neighbourhoods so its not very touristic. And also not much to do either.
