Some hotels provide a free pickup.

In the hotel to airport direction I paid 15 soles (about $5) for a radio taxi reserved the night before so I wouldn't pay more than than.

Arrange for yr hotel to provide airport transport.

It should not be more than $5 to $10.

In Cuzco, the airport is right in the middle of the city. I've paid 12 soles, arranged by my hotel. Depending on where you stay, there are tons of bus going up the Avenida del Sol, that makes it to the Plaza de Armas.

Hi,

The official taxi-rate is 2,50 soles, but from the airport they usually ask 3 or 4 soles. Don't pay more than 4. This is when you just walk outside of the airport (50 metres) where there are always taxis waiting. I don't know the prices inside the gate, I never take it because its too expensive.
