How to take the cheap shuttle bus from Lima airport to Miraflores

  • Taxi is the main way to travel to and from the Jorge Chavez airport for travelers
  • When I went to Lima though I used the shuttle bus option called Airport Express Lima. Some info on them:
  • Price was only $8 USD each way, compared to $25 for a taxi
  • Official website is https://www.airportexpresslima.com/
  • They run between the airport and Miraflores, which is where most travelers stay because it's one of the most upscale, commercial, and safe areas of Lima; right by the ocean and has tons of hotels, restaurants, cafes and shopping options
  • From the airport, it runs every hour on top of the hour from 7:00am (first bus departure time) to midnight (last bus departure time)
  • Travel time was around 1 hour
  • I booked my ticket online on their official site ahead of time with credit card, but you can pay by cash (USD or soles) on the bus itself or at the airport
  • How to get on this bus at the airport:
  • The bus is located among all the ground transportation options outside the luggage pickup in international arrival area. Look for this booth:User submitted photo of Lima
  • They also have service out of the domestic ground transportation zone too FYI
  • Again, you don't need to buy tickets ahead of time. You can buy it at this booth with credit card. Or even on the bus itself with cash USD or Soles
  • What to do after you get off in Miraflores
  • I just walked to my hotel in Miraflores (this bus has 7 separate stops all over Miraflores so make sure you get off at the one closest to your hotel; the attendant at the ground transportation zone can help you figure it out - they offered me but I already planned ahead with Google Maps)
  • You can also take a taxi to other parts of Lima, much cheaper than taking a taxi from the airport directly to your hotel. The 7 stops were all at various major hotels in Miraflores (like Hilton for example), so you'll easily find taxis as soon as you get off
