How to get from the airport to the city center?
Getting from Jorge Chávez Airport to the Lima city center can be done via taxi, airport shuttle, or the buses. Taxis might be your most expensive option, but if you book one in advance from inside the airport, it should be your fastest way of getting from the airport to the city center. Alternatively, you can take the express bus, which runs to Centro and Miraflores, or you may also want to consider taking a bus parked outside of the arrivals terminal.
You can take a Llama Taxi (which is the official taxi company operating from Cusco Airport) in order to get to the city center, but be sure to reserve a taxi at their booth inside the airport. There are also a lot of unofficial taxis parked outside of the airport offering transportation services, which might be cheaper and faster to use, but availability might be an issue.
