Travel Information

Arrival in Peru

You will arrive at Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM) and it is located in the constitutional province of Callao but it is the natural airport of Lima and the most important in Peru, since it concentrates the great majority of international and national flights in the country.

Getting to the hotel

You must take a taxi cab to the hotel. After you pass immigration and customs at the airport and immediately to your left you will see the authorized taxi counter. Authorized Taxis are listed here [Licensed Taxis]. DO NOT TAKE ANY OTHER UNAUTHORIZED TAXI SERVICE AS IT MIGHT BE UNSAFE.

Taxi fares to the accommodation area should be around US$ 20 - US$ 30 each way and taxis can be shared by up to four people. Make sure you get a receipt from the counter if you need to be reimbursed.

Money Exchange

The currency of Peru is the nuevo sol (symbol: S/.). Nuevo sol banknotes come in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200. One nuevo sol (S/.1) is subdivided into 100 centimos. Coins are available in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 centimos, as well as larger denominations of 1, 2 and 5 nuevos soles. You can simply withdraw money when needed from ATMs all over Peru. Visa is the most widely accepted debit or credit card in Peru; there will be fees associated with each withdrawal. Or you can exchange your money to Nuevos Soles in authorized agencies inside the airport.
