Arequipa Mini Guide

What Makes Arequipa Such a Popular Destination?
The city is in the so-called ‘tourist corridor’ that links Nazca with Cuzco and is popular because of its history. Nearly 500 years have gone by since its founding and many of the buildings from that time remain, preserved by UNESCO directives and make for great places to study the architecture of colonial times. It’s also the perfect location for experiencing the fusion of Spanish and Mestizo cultures seen in the food, language, music and dance.

How do I get to Arequipa?
Rodriguez Ballon Airport is only five miles from the city and whilst only a regional airport, it has daily flights from Lima and Cuzco so it’s easy to get to. Lima has several flights from North America and from Europe so travellers can fly in from airports such as Madrid, Amsterdam or Paris as well as Atlanta or Newark.

What is There to See and Do in Arequipa?
The main draw is the colonial architecture, much of which is protected by UNESCO. There’s a lot of it and in many different styles as the wealthy of the city experimented with European design. The Santa Catalina Convent is the most visited old building in the city and is very atmospheric. Outside the city you’ll find the three volcanic peaks that are iconic of the city as well as the start of the trail that wanders along and through the mighty Andes Mountains.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Arequipa is a big city with lots to see and outside the city limits there’s more still. Without a hire car you’ll miss so much of what the city has to offer and not get the chance to drive close to the volcanoes that overshadow the city.

Many travellers believe that the cost of car hire is prohibitive but our customers know differently. You won’t find anywhere else that offers Arequipa car hire for the same low cost and includes one of the highest levels of insurance and breakdown cover in the price.

Don’t think that because our prices are low, that the same will apply to the quality of our vehicles. We only offer latest models of our Arequipa hire cars, all of which are regularly maintained and carefully prepared before you take the key. There’s a wide range for you to choose from and if you need any extras to make your holiday safer such as child seats, or an additional driver, you can request them on the booking form.
