As someone who's done it, I like the bus. Of course, there are pros and cons of each. Bus Pros: A bus is cheaper, you get to see more of the countryside, interact with more people. You get breaks, get good seats (they have business class buses!), and you can stop off at places on the way. We stopped in Arequipa to go to the Colca Canyon, and in Nazca for ...

Shortest flight is direct one, operated by KLM. It's 12 hours. And it isn't cheap, standard price currently stands around 1300€ for return ticket (AMS->LIM->AMS), and if you're very specific on dates it might be even more. Alternatives with one stop over: Delta (via Atlanta), Air Europa (via Madrid). It's might be slightly cheaper (1000€-1200€), but ...

When leaving Lima If you are flying out of Lima internationally, the airport tax is US$31, US$7.40 for domestic flights. As of January 2011 this tax has been rolled into the purchase price of the tickets at this airport. Ensure you receive a sticker on the back of each ticket from the check-in counter to attest to this at the security checkpoint. ...

I just called the 3 taxi companies that work with the airport and the cost is around 60 soles (23 dollar), which i think is a fair price because it's a service of the airport and it's safe. You could take the taxi outside and the cost would be 40 soles or maybe less but i can't say anything about safety. Price details: 1 - 3 person (Car) 60 soles 4 - 6 ...

Bus ride from Lima to Cuzco is 20 to 21 hours depending on the company, costing from $65 for one-way ticket. And it's also mainly less-than-safe mountain road. Flight from Lima to Cuzco is 1h10m to 1h25m and you can get ticket as cheap as $175 for round-trip.

Most airlines have been collecting the airport tax (sometimes labeled departure tax, embarkation tax or TUUA) since October 2010 or January 2011, so you should already have paid for it when you bought your ticket. This is at least the case with the main scheduled carriers (inc. Air Canada, American, Continental (now United), Delta, TACA, StarPerú, and LAN). ...

The Air Europa route (AMS-Madrid-LIM) had a reasonable stopover in Madrid and was somewhat cheaper than the direct KLM flight. However, if you book sufficiently early, the difference may not be that much between the KLM and Air Europa flight. A reason to go for the more expensive KLM flight may be that the Air Europa flights seem to have a higher risk of ...

When we were there last June, the cost from the airport to Miraflores was about 60 soles. We were not able to get them lower than 55 soles, and that was like pulling teeth, so I think they keep their prices pretty firmly at about 60 soles.

At Lima airport there is a sort of gate for this, with a few turnstiles attended by 2 or 3 Lima airport employees. When I left Lima airport a few weeks ago, at this sort of gate an employee just scanned my boarding pass and told me to pass (without paying the fee). I was flying Iberia, in a LAN plane. I am under the impression that nowadays at Lima airport ...

I live in Peru. Since 2011, the tax has been added to the ticket price (as has long been practiced by American Airlines). Once in a while, a travel agent will forget to add the TUUA and you will have to pay it at the airport; but this is very rare. So, there is a departure tax ($30.74 for international and $8.72 for domestic), but you shouldn't have to ...
