On the north, Avenida Oscar Benavides (formerly known as Avenida Colonial) marks the district's border with the Callao District, which it also borders on the west in Jr. Andrés Santiago Vigil. On the east, the district ends at the Santiago Tábara Naval Hospital or the western perimeter of the National University of San Marcos, where the Lima Province (or more specifically, the Lima District) begins


According to the 2005 census by the INEI, the district had 72,761 inhabitants, and a population density of 15,956.4 persons/km².

The official see of the Callao Regional Government is located in Bellavista.
