I am trying to make flight arrangements to Lima and am frustrated because all the reasonably priced flights land in Lima very late, after 11:00 p.m.

Is it safe to be at the airport then? Will reputable taxi companies still be working that late? I know I will want to stay at a hotel in one of the nicer suburbs upon arrival so I feel safer.

Should I book something this late or spend several hundred more and possibly have to make two stops in order to get there early?

I thought that booking flights to South America would be more convenient and less expensive than to Europe. Boy, was I wrong.

Smile Peru and flights

I am working on a trip to Peru for myself and most of the flights depart the states in the evening. The later you depart, say Miami, would put you in Lima close to sunrise.

I have not been to Lima but have traveled to other areas in S. America. Inside the airport you are fine. The problem starts when you arrange transport to your hotel.

tripadvisor.com has excellent forums by destination.

Enjoy Peru, I cannot wait!!
