Transport in PERU

  • Domestic flights: $12.00 USD.
  • International flights: $25.00 USD.
Payment to be made in cash before boarding the flight.

BY LAND

Inter-provincial buses

The inter-provincial bus service covers all destinations in Peru, except for certain cities in the Jungle. Inquire into the comfort available depending on the fare paid; and whether or not the service is non-stop.

TAXIS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

It is recommended that taxis should be from taxi companies (which are requested by phone) or those authorized by the municipalities (in Lima they are painted yellow and some of them have a lighted sign over the roof).

Taxi meters are not used in Peru, therefore the price must be negotiated before going into the taxi. Ask where you are staying about the average fares to your destination. No tips are normally given to taxi drivers.

At airports, it is advisable to hire the services of taxis authorized by the management authority.

Urban buses (the most economical alternative) are of the colors and numbers assigned for the specific route. Most of them travel long treks and they may turn out to be uncomfortable. Inquire before taking them; and do not take them too late at night.

TRAINS

The tourist rail service covers three routes:

  • Puno - Cusco
  • Cusco - Ollantaytambo - Machu-Picchu
