Flights to Lima land in the Jorge Chavez International Airport, in the downtrodden harbor district of Callao. Unfortunately, it’s one of the most dangerous areas in the city, so you shouldn’t go to the trouble of exploring or of trying to find a place to stay near the airport. The overwhelming majority of travelers stay in the seaside district of Miraflores, as it’s very safe and boast a great number of parks, quality restaurants, and tourist attractions. You can reach Miraflores yourself by taxi, shuttle, tourist-class bus, local bus, or rental car- here’s how!
