"Flying is the most practical..." Con Avion - By Plane Tip by CubsIn4

Con Avion - By Plane, Lima: 12 reviews and 7 photos

Flying is the most practical option. Lima is not located near a border, and while there are buses that run along the coast, they tend to be slow, overcrowded and not that reliable. And unless you're coming from somewhere on the coast, flying is your only option given the mountainous terrain that separates the jungle from the ocean.
Cabs are usually easy to catch and are very cheap compared with the US and Europe. If you're going somewhere and not sure of the location, this is probably your best option.
If you do have a general idea of how to get somewhere, you might also catch a bus. They're very frequent and cheap, although they don't look much like the buses I'm used to, more like a large van. If you want to get off somewhere, just yell out and the driver will pull over (and if he can't, he'll let you out in the middle of the street!). Buses are not the most pleasant means of transportation since they really pack you in, but it's a good way to meet people.
