Cono Norte

  (Redirected from Cono Norte (Lima))

The Cono Norte (recently being called Lima Norte) is one of the six areas that make up the Lima Metropolitan Area. It is located in the northern part of the metropolis, hence its name. The socioeconomic levels of its residents are varied. Ancón and Santa Rosa (both in the far north of the province) are popular beach resorts (but not residential areas) for wealthier residents of Lima. The rest of the population comprises middle class and lower class residents. It is one of the most populated areas of Peru.
