How to get out Lima

How to get out Lima

If you are flying out of Lima internationally, the airport tax is US$31, US$7.40 for domestic flights. As of January 2011 this tax has been rolled into the purchase price of the tickets at this airport. Ensure you receive a sticker on the back of each ticket from the check-in counter to attest to this at the security checkpoint. The surrounding residential towns of Lima in the foothills of the mountains offer spectacular views and are ideal day-trips from central Lima. If you are flying to your next destination, you can take the "S" bus to the airport (ask at your hotel for the stops) or any micro bus that says "Faucett" on its side. The trip from Miraflores takes about an hour and costs 3 soles. Cabs are of course more convenient and much more expensive. If you wish to take a long distance bus, see the Get In section above for bus companies, the various locations of their terminals and their destinations. Some popular destinations from Lima are:
  • Arequipa? An attractive city in the south.
