How can I travel from Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM) to Paracas, Ica by public transport when my flight arrives at 14:45?

It will be on a Friday if this matters.

    I read the WANTA link and believe this is specific enough. I'm not asking for itinerary construction. I hope we don't degenerate into only boring questions about visas and factoids. Instead we can have exciting questions about public transport :)

    I've removed the time from your title to avoid this being a WANTA. A general itinerary should be sufficient.

Wikivoyage has:

You can reach a comfortable regular bus company like ExcluCiva, Cruz del Sur, Oltursa and Peru Bus (Soyuz). The latter being the most inexpensive. They have bus stations in Lima, Paracas, Ica and Nazca. They also have connections to Arequipa or Cusco (and towns in between) although sometimes the schedule is not always met. Peru Hop offer direct buses to and from Lima daily they include a pick up and drop-off service.Also there are minibuses to Ica, which are a bit cheaper and provide hotel-to-hotel service. Cheaper bus companies only go to Pisco, from where you can get a taxi to Paracas (S./15 for two Apr 2015).

Peru Hop a new service offer daily direct buses to the centre of Paracas to or from Lima and Huacachina.

Here is an example from Oltursa:

Peru bus

Andrea A on TripAdvisor wasn't very happy with ExcluCiva but they are not likely to be any worse than the alternatives.

Google Maps suggests 30 minutes by car from Jorge Chávez International Airport to Avenida Andrés Aramburú.

Connection in Ica (city) may mean a long wait:

Bus Peru

The alternative might be to spend Friday night in Lima and catch an early bus the next day.

  • Thanks for your answer. I've searched those bus companies and could find no trip leaving in the afternoon and getting to Paracas that night. So maybe staying leaving Lima early the next day is best.

  • Instructions from hotel website only mentions same bus lines. Probably someone at LIM could tell me when I'm there as I feel there is some way

  • I took some liberties with your answer in my suggested edit. Your comment about regarding bus to Pisco is really the answer. I've edited that into your answer for future readers.
