Taxi from Lima airport to Miraflores

What should I expect to pay for a taxi to Miraflores? My flight arrives at 11:00 pm. Will there be (reputable) taxis available that late? Where (inside or outside the terminal should I pick one up? Please advise.

I was there 5 years ago, but no shortage of cabbies trying to get my business as soon as I stepped out of the secure area.

I'd suggest seeing if your hotel has an airport pickup service. A lot of international flights arrive at that time so don't worry about it being too late.

We were there last year and our hotel arranged for a taxi to pick us up. The cost was around $30.

Check with your hotel, I am sure they will arrange something for you. It is nice to get off the plane and see someone holding a sign with your name on it.

$30 is extortionate; the Taxi Green registered cabs are available 24 hours and will take you to Miraflores for 45 soles; most hotels charge about this as well.

I was there in July - paid about 40-50 soles from Green Taxi inside the terminal (Right there when you walk out of customs - will probably approach you).

On the way back I just hailed a taxi from the street and bargained for the same price return. Hotel wanted 2x-3x that to take you to the airport in their service!

Was in Lima twice and was the same both times.

Incidentally, a fair price on the street from Miraflores to the airport is 25 soles.

World wide, its always the same.

Higher fares for airport outgoing than incoming.

At least, that is my experience.

Late night is very busy at Lima airport, it is when a lot of international flights seem to arrive. I don't think you will have trouble, it was a madhouse!

Some of the hotels will arrange a taxi and it is nice to see your name if you've never been thru Lima before. On the other hand depending on the hotel they may charge an excessive amount, or send a beat up old rattletrap. At least with Taxi Green you can get a look at what you will be spending 45 minutes to an hour in thru crazy traffic. BTW it is advised to put all of your luggage including carryon in the trunk, so don't be surprised if they suggest that. Smash and grab happens on the main Avenue away from the airport.

The post I'm writing about is now closed, so I'm wondering if you can tell me about your experience with the Surf Divas camp? I'm hoping to go this winter and, as you mentioned, they do not post any info on where the camp is located and the info on the hotels is pretty spotty.

Any info you have is helpful.

Thanks! -Amy
