Getting to Lima, Peru
Lima is the capital of exotic Peru. With its rich culture, fascinating history and tantalising cuisine, it is little wonder that Lima sees a steady influx of visitors every year. Getting to Lima is a fairly manageable process, especially in recent years, and visitors coming from North America or adjacent parts of South America will probably find ways to re ach Lima in record time with few if any problems.

By Air - Visitors who choose to fly to Lima will arrive at the Jorge Chavez International Airport, which is situated in Callao, one of the more urban and metropolitan areas within Lima itself. The airport is quite bustling and packed with people, as it is a touch point for a substantial number of international flights as well as domestic ones.

For international visitors, there are quite a number of air services that you have the liberty of choosing from. Examples of air services that fly to Lima's airport would be KLM Royal Dutch, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines as well as Air Canada. Those flying from the major cities, such as Amsterdam, Toronto, Houston, Madrid and Miami should be able to get on a direct flight to Lima. For those travelling from North America or other parts of South America, you may want to consider the domestic flights. These cost much less and provide an interesting travel experience as you get to interact with the locals along the way.

From the airport, you can travel to your specific destinations by hopping onto a taxi. While there are many options open to you, it is highly recommended that you engage the taxi services provided by the airport to avoid being charged exorbitant prices by the local taxi drivers who tend to wait outside the airport. The duration of the journey from the airport to places such as San Isidro or Miraflores is roughly half an hour.

By Bus - Travelling to Lima via bus is also an interesting experience as you get to travel alongside the locals and partake more of the sights and sounds of South America. Also, it is much cheaper than air travel. There are many different routes for you to choose from and bus ticket prices vary according to the routes as well as the quality of the service offered. It is best to do some research before buying your tickets. Most of the bus services are located in and around La Victoria. You will find it fairly easy to travel to Lima by bus, as well as travelling to surrounding areas. Most of these buses travel along the Interamericana (Pan-American highway).
