Lima Travel Guide

Getting Around Lima

Lima is divided into four quarters, which are small enough to explore on foot. Travelling from one section to another is best done in a bus or taxi, however. The regular buses serving the city consist of microbus vans and larger ''school bus'' vehicles. These are plentiful and inexpensive, although uncomfortable and frequently involved in accidents. These ''micros'' and ''combis'' can be flagged down in the street. Destinations are usually not marked so ask the driver before boarding. Taxicabs are also plentiful and cheap, of no particular make or model, but recognisable by plastic signs on the windshield. Taxis are not metered and the fare should be agreed before departure. Driving in Lima is hazardous: not only are the roads in generally bad condition, but local drivers are reckless and aggressive. Car rental is therefore best avoided.
