Flew Lima-Chiclayo with LAN Peru. Quite expensive for a one-hour flight, around € 80-90 one-way. Monopoly by LAN! Delays of 3 hours (also same delay on my flight Lima-Bogota with LAN) due to bad weather in the Andes (Cusco flights) which disrupted the schedules. Summer along the coast is rainy season in the Andes.
Chiclayo-Trujillo and Trujillo-Lima by bus. Below is a copy of what I wrote on my Trujillo Transportation page.
See also my Peru Transportation pages.
Chiclayo-Trujillo with bus company La Linea. Frequent departures, every hour. Driving time 4 hours. Costs: € 4 per person one-way.
For longer distances (e.g. Chicalyo-Lima/Trujillo-Lima) see my Peru transportation pages. I prefer Cruz del Sur, safer, more comfortable. I almost always travel by day when possible/feasible.
Trujillo to Lima with Cruz del Sur took 9 hours, € 20 per person. Seated upstairs which is a little cheaper than downstairs and gives better views. The front seats, upstairs, are almost always occupied by tourists.....
Tickets were bought at the bus station of Cruz del Sur in Chiclayo before we left for Trujillo.
Flying, with LAN Peru (the only airline covering Chiclayo and Trujillo at this moment, monopoly!), is much more expensive, around € 80 one-way and only one or two flights a day.
