The most common form of transportation in Peru is the taxi. However, regulation of taxis in Peru remains very informal. You will see both registered and unregistered taxis leaving Lima Airport.
Therefore, if you do choose to go by taxi, the local authorities highly recommend booking a taxi before leaving Lima Airport, through one of the registered and official taxi companies. There are five major taxi companies that you will find inside Jorge Chavez Airport, and they are CMV Taxi Remisse Ejecutivo, Mitsoo Remisse Taxi, Taxi365, Taxi Directo and Taxi Green.
When returning to the airport, the concierge or receptionist of your hotel or hostel will be able to book you a registered and official taxi. Make sure to leave your hotel or hostel with enough time to spare, as traffic in Lima can be terrible at any time of day. Travelling from the airport to Miraflores (and vice versa) can take 45 – 60 minutes, and double that time during rush hours.
If you do not want to take a taxi, here are two options to get you out of the airport.
There are four major car rental companies located in Jorge Chavez airport: AVIS, Budget, Hertz and Grupo ANC. Driving in Peru – and especially Lima – is a challenge, even for the more experienced driver.
Unless you are familiar with Lima’s road rules and the way of driving, renting a car is not recommended. It is much easier to take a bus or taxi to get around Lima.
