By Taxi or Uber:

We recommend Uber, it is cheaper

  • If you take your taxi from Barranco, you should pay a maximum of 25 soles
  • If you take your taxi from Miraflores, you should pay a maximum of 20 soles

You need to ask for the price before getting in the taxi, make sure any price they give you is in local currency – don’t negotiate in USA dollars (because of the exchange rate).
