Lima Airport Lounges

Jorge Chávez International Airport is the main airport in Peru for both international and domestic flights. It is located in the Callao district of Lima, the capital of Peru. On arrival, most passengers head straight for Lima's historic center or coastal districts such as Miraflores. The city center is about seven miles from the airport. The best way to get there is by taking a registered taxi from the airport terminal. It is not a good idea to leave the airport grounds in search of transportation, especially with your luggage. The Callao district is not one of Lima's safest areas but the airport itself is very secure.
