Airport transfer from Lima Airport to Miraflores

Hello! Would anyone give a realistic estimate of how much the taxi costs from Lima Airport to Miraflores in USD $? I know there are dangers out there, and some tourists get ripped off, so trying to be prepared. Also anyone has tried viator.com? They have an airport transfer for $14.99 - and i was wondering if it's kinda cheap???

viator.com/tours/…d928-5243LIMAPTHTL

Any company you could recommend otherwise? thanks so much.

Taxi Green charges S/.45 for a taxi to Miraflores.

Perfectly safe and reliable.

A van will cost and extra S/.10

The exhange rate now is around S/. 2.70- 2.75 to a US$

As you´re traveling in the car, be careful not to expose your bags/luggage. A known criminal technique in Lima is to shoot out the window next to your head and snatch the bag from your lap or the seat next to you before you realize what´s happening. We paid about $20 (through our hotel) from Lima to an area adjacent to Miraflores. Good luck!

I never used Taxi Green but it has been recommended on other fora as well.

When arriving in Lima from Europe I always go to the national arrivals part of the airport, at the other end.

There I wait in the lane until a older taxi driver drops passengers and ask him to bring me to Barranco. Until now I have never paid more than 25 S/. which is slightly less than 10 USD.

For piece of mind you could use Taxi Green.

US23.00 would be acceptable, it would be better US20.00 but if it is reliable go for it.

If that is what your hotel is charging and they are going to send someone to meet, you, it is a little high but not terrible. It's more than a taxi booked at the airport, but you'll feel more comfortable for a first visit to Lima airport which can be a bit intimidating. About $18 to $20 was what the hotels were charging last time I visited, but I am seeing some modest price increases in my trip planning that are reflecting some of the USD devaluation.

Yes, it's recommended to put your luggage in an enclosed trunk. The smash and grab is pretty well documented on some of the streets leading from the airport. I am looking forward to seeing all the new street and transit improvements that were underconstruction last time I visited. Is there any chance this will improve traffic flow?!

Do not even attempt to do what Inka Kola is suggesting, specially if you do not speak spanish.

Taxi Green at the national or International gate charges the same.

Use the transport that the hotel is offering, what are we arguing about, 3 bucks ! Common !

In the USA you would give it as a tip, which in Peru its not customary.

I'd rather pay more and be secure, to be honest. the private tour that I am considering is offering a pick up from the airport for 23 bucks. so it seems it's reasonable.

My hotel in Barranco is sending a taxi to meet us (4pp) at the airport for $20 USD. For safety reasons, I'll pay $20.
