How do I find a place to live in Lima?

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Lima is to use online resources such as websites and social media. Websites such as Craigslist, Expat.com, and EasyRoommate are great for finding rental listings in Lima. Additionally, social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter can be used to search for rental listings in Lima.
