Peru: Lima
Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM)

The airport is six miles (10 km) west of the center of Lima.
There are two types of taxis in Lima, registered and unregistered (unregistered taxis are also known as "street" taxis). The registered taxis have a sticker with a number you can write down, in the windshield. Unregistered taxis are driven by people needing to pick up some extra cash, and can't be traced, should you leave something in the cab.

If you are in doubt, use only registered taxis awaiting you at stands in front of the terminal. There are no meters, so negotiate the fare before departing the airport. The fare should be around 30 to 37 soles ($8 to $10), and the ride will take about 30 minutes to the city center. Street taxis can be hailed outside the airport, and are less expensive than registered taxis.

Avis, Budget, Hertz, National and other companies have offices at the airport.
