Hiring a car from Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima provides you with the flexibility to explore Peru at your own pace. However, driving in Lima and the surrounding regions has its challenges. Here's an overview of the driving conditions, main routes, and distances to notable towns/cities:

Main Routes & Distances:

  1. Lima City Center: About 10-15 km from the airport, depending on the exact destination within the city. You can take the Vía Expresa Elmer Faucett directly from the airport to the city center.

  2. Miraflores: A popular district in Lima is approximately 20 km away. Using the Vía Expresa Elmer Faucett and the Vía Expresa Paseo de la República, it takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on traffic.

  3. Cusco: Approximately 1,100 km southeast of Lima. It's a long and challenging drive of 18-20 hours via the Carretera Central (PE-22 and PE-24) and then PE-3S.

  4. Arequipa: Roughly 1,000 km to the south, taking about 15-17 hours via the Pan-American Highway (PE-1S).

  5. Trujillo: Located about 560 km to the north, it's around an 8-10 hour drive via the Pan-American Highway (PE-1N).

  6. Paracas: Around 250 km to the south, a 3-4 hour drive via the Pan-American Highway (PE-1S). It's a popular coastal destination and the jumping-off point for the Ballestas Islands.

Driving Conditions:

  1. Traffic in Lima: Lima's traffic can be hectic, especially during rush hours. Streets can be crowded, and local driving habits might be aggressive compared to what you're accustomed to.

  2. Road Quality: Major highways, like the Pan-American Highway, are generally in good condition. However, secondary roads, especially in mountainous areas, can be narrow, winding, and poorly maintained.

  3. Tolls: There are toll booths on major highways, so it's good to have some local currency (Peruvian soles) handy.

  4. Signage: Signs are in Spanish, and while major destinations are generally well-marked, it's beneficial to have a reliable GPS or navigation app.

Driving Practices:

  1. Right Side: In Peru, you drive on the right side of the road.

  2. Seat Belts: Mandatory for all passengers.

  3. Speed Limits:

    • Urban areas: 30-60 km/h
    • Outside urban areas: 80-100 km/h
    • Highways: Up to 100 km/h
  4. Mobile Phones: Use of mobile phones without a hands-free system is illegal while driving.

  5. Alcohol: The legal limit for blood alcohol content is 0.05%. However, it's recommended to avoid drinking entirely if you plan to drive.

  6. Parking: In Lima, it's advised to use guarded parking lots, especially overnight. Street parking might be limited and often has restrictions.

  1. Avoid Night Driving: Especially outside of Lima, as roads can be poorly lit and have unexpected hazards.

  2. Stay Alert: As with driving in any unfamiliar location, always be vigilant, respect local traffic rules, and be ready for sudden maneuvers by other drivers.

In conclusion, while driving from Jorge Chávez International Airport offers flexibility, it's crucial to be prepared for Lima's traffic and the diverse road conditions in Peru. Plan your routes in advance, ensure you're adequately rested, and always prioritize safety. Safe travels!
