Trip Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Lima, Peru

Welcome to Peru! Today is a transit day, and after a long flight you're probably looking forward to a nice meal and some relaxation. The Costa del Sol hotel is located right across the street from the airport and is the best choice for travelers connecting to Cuzco. However, if you arrive to Lima in the early afternoon, you may choose to stay in the district of Miraflores. In this case, a representative will meet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel.
