Long Distance Buses, Lima: 4 reviews and 3 photos

From abroad, by plane.
From Peru itself, at least from the coast, there are plenty of coaches, some of them being really luxury ones. If you have time, why not?
I did myslef the trip from Lima to Santiago in February 1998 (company Ormeņos). 60 hours!! A once in a lifetime experience. I won't do it a second time. For sure, you will know your neighbours and learn why Peruvian go to work in Cile (if you can speak Spanish) and they might invite you home to drink some Pisco.
Plenty of cheap buses, but it looks like each bus belongs to a different company. So, do not expect any plan or schedule o bus stop, just ask people in the street or at your hotel. And ask the driver where you have to get out.
Otherwise, taxis are cheap. You just have to negociate the price before getting in. Minimum fare in 2000: 3 soles. For less than 10 soles you could already go to a different neighbourhood.
You can also rent a car, although I would consider doing it only if you want to go out of Lima. Driving in Lima is quite crazy.

Type: Airplane
