“I highly recommend Lima Cabs for your transportation needs around Lima, Peru.”
I have used Lima Cabs for transportation from the airport to my hotel several times before, and I have always been pleased with their service. They are sure to be on time, and the drivers are very professional and personable.
Arriving to a busy airport like the Jorge Chavez in Lima, Peru can be a little stressful and overwhelming, even for people who have traveled dozens of times to and from this airport, and even if you are fluent in Spanish. Unless you have a friend or relative that is going to pick you up, it is very convenient to exit customs and find the Lima Cab driver waiting for you, holding a sign with your name, making it easy for you to find him immediately. The driver will wait for you in case of any flight delays. The fleet they use for their services is modern and very well kept.
Besides the convenience and comfort of using Lima Cabs transportation, the Jorge Chavez airport is located in an area that is not the safest. You can find dozens of taxis and other transportation means right outside the airport, and they will even cost much less than the going rate for Lima Cabs, but you might be exposing yourself to dangerous situations. Lima Cabs going fare is US $27.00, which I find very reasonable.
Every year I travel to different countries on vacation and I like to have all my reservations finalized before I depart. I like that any time I am going to visit Lima, Peru I can email Lima Cabs from any country in the world and make my reservation. One of their customer service representatives, Ms. Fiorella Sanchez, is the most professional and organized. She will email you right back with a confirmation and she is very dependable. I now email her directly when I want to make any reservation.
In Lima, it is very easy to get transportation TO the airport. Most nice hotels have their own taxi service; there are shuttles; there are taxis available everywhere. I enjoy the punctuality and reliability I get from Lima Cabs, so this last trip I even arranged for them to pick me up from the hotel (at 2:00 a.m.) and drive me to the airport. I didn’t have to worry about asking the concierge to get me a taxi on time for my departure, or making sure I had a taxi available. The Lima Cabs employee, Fernando Gonzalez, arrived as expected and I arrived to the airport relaxed and on time. As expected, he was very professional and nice. In case you do not speak Spanish, his English was very good.
This year we also took one of Lima Cabs TOURS for the first time. We took their tour that drives you to Ica, Paracas, Chincha, the Ballesta Islands, and a flight over the desert to see the Nazca Lines. Mr. Edward Ventocilla came to pick us up. He was on time and the drive was very pleasant because Mr. Ventocilla was very nice and knowledgeable of the history and geography, so he would be giving us interesting information as he drove. He also did a great job in getting us set up for all the activities, and we did not have to worry about anything just having fun. At lunch, Edward took us to a restaurant that had excellent food. Mr. Ventocilla was very professional throughout our tour trip, but he was also a really nice person. It was a pleasure to have him drive us that day. Finally, he speaks English very well too.
