Lima Airport – Our arrival in Lima
We land in the late afternoon in Lima. I booked through our hotel a taxi big enough for 4 people + 4 big backpacks and he was waiting for us right out of the airport. The journey from Lima Airport to Lima lasted about 1 hour and cost us 70 soles or about 16 Euros. Which represented 4 Euros per person (here is one of the advantages to travel to several!).
Arrival in Lima – Lima Airport to our hotel in Lima
It was in this taxi that we had our first sensations in Peru. Indeed, his driving was more than sporting because we slalomed at full speed between parked cars, trucks, pedestrians … in short we were afraid but we laughed! It was supposed that the driver was expected after his race and he should not be ahead … So we had very little exchanged with him (he was too focused on his behavior and we too worried and “stuck” …) .
Arrival in Lima – Cheap hotel in Lima
When we arrived at the hotel, the owner of Residencial Carlos was waiting for us with a beautiful smile and availability that we appreciated. The choice of the hotel was relative to its price. Indeed, 42 € with breakfasts, it is not expensive for a hotel in Lima! Especially since there is no point in choosing one in hyper center or near a tourist site to spend only one night.
The Residencial Carlos has fulfilled its mission: clean, calm and with good bedding. The next morning we asked the owner to order a taxi for the Cruz Del Sur station. Indeed, we left early enough to take the bus to ICA / Huacachina.
The breakfast is taken in a very beautiful patio. He was good and generous. So good address for a hotel “step” in full LIMA: “Residencial CARLOS” Los Ruiseñores Number 150, Lima 34 +51 1 4427326
Arrival in Lima – My impressions
I really felt joy and evaluated how lucky I was to be in Peru. And I also felt a certain excitement at the idea of starting a trip that I had been waiting for years … But all this will be for tomorrow and the next days because fatigue is felt too …
