What you should know about taxi at lima airport and other transportations.
There are several types of public transportations: big buses, medium-sized coasters, and micros and combis, small white vans packed with up to 20 people. It is not advisable for tourists to get out of the airport and take these trasportations, because they do not permit you to take bags or other big things. It is much better for you to take a taxi at the airport, but read this tip before get in the taxi.
TIPS FOR TRAVELERS: If you want to take a taxi by yourself do not get in a taxi without arranging the price first. Sometimes you agree with a price then you get to the point and the driver will charge you more, if you have bags or friend or wife the driver will charge more. More examples: If you take a taxi to Miraflores the driver will say it is 20 dollars and you agree with that but when you arrive in Miraflores the driver will say it is 20 dollars you and 20 dollars your friend and 10 dollars per each bag and you have a couple of bags. So it will cost you $ 60 dollars. It will become a nightmare. Another thing. Do not get out of the taxi until the driver is out of the taxi. Sometimes the taxi goes with your bags becuse you get off the taxi first.
