Taxi fares Question

by detour7007

What kind of taxi fare can i expect from airport to Miraflores hotel?

What type of fare can I expect from Miraflores to central Lima plaza and activities there?

Re: Taxi fares Question

by stg25

If you get a registered cab, they will charge you about 60 soles from the airport to Miraflores, probably. An unregistered cab should charge you about 30 or 40 soles, BUT I'd recommend you stick to the registered ones. They're the ones you normally get by calling a cab company, and the ones the information desk at the airport should get for you. Registered cab drivers are also more likely to speak English. Be careful that many unregistered cab drivers are also at the airport waiting to get customers.

Unregistered cabs are normally the ones you can get directly in the street. (It doesn't mean a thing that they're painted yellow.) Although most unregistered cab drivers are good people, a few of them might not be, since the job is not well regulated in Peru. That's why I recommend registered cabs. I especially suggest you take a registered cab if you're taking it at night, or when coming back from partying and not in full command of your senses. You can always ask the managers at most restaurants or clubs to call a registered cab for you.

If you do decide to take an unregistered cab, you should know fares are suggested by the driver at the time you stop the cab. If you agree and get in, then that's what you have to pay. The vast majority of locals do bargain, but you need to be familiar with the area to bargain reasonably.

A basic command of Spanish wouldn't hurt, since most people (and cab drivers, among all) in Peru do not speak English.

I'm a local, by the way.

Nazca Lines Park

by cruisingbug

I don't know the true name of this park - but along the coast north of the Lovers Park is a very pretty park devoted to Maria Reiche. It's relatively new.

It has representations done in flowers of some of the Nazca line drawings - at night, the outlines light up. A nice prelude, or a substitute, if you don't have the time, money, or inclination to take a Nazca overflight.

Not as scary as it sounds

by baanasta about El Dragon

El Dragon is a very fun hangout in Barranco. The atmosphere is always upbeat, there is a large dance floor (mostly hip-hop, spanish pop, salsa), enough space (although it tends to get crowded on weekends), and very friendly waitresses. This place usually gets going later than other places (1:00 AM) and there is a S/15 cover that comes with a free drink. Pretty Lax

Best resturant in lima

in the distance.

Try 'Chifa' - the famous chinese restaurants

by El_Sueco

Besides of the spanish influence, the food influence from Asia is the greatest. A great number of chinese came in the 19th century to work. Then they left the country side for the cities, where they installed their restaurants, the famous so called 'Chifas'.
Strictly speaking perhaps this is not a chinese food, but the combination of chinese receipts (mostly Canton) with peruvian components has created a very good food tradition.
Many peruvians today choose as their meal 'arroz chaufa', 'sopa wantan' and 'tallarin saltado'.
