Car Rental Lima Airport
Car hire at Jorge Chávez International Airport puts you 11km from Lima, the capital of Peru. The country's main airport, it has seen its traffic grow enormously in recent years, and it now carries more than 15 million passengers annually. It was named after Peruvian aviator Jorge Chávez. It has been named as the "Best Airport in South America."
Spread across a sprawl of desert cliffs, Lima is no beauty, particularly given that it is mired in fog for much of the year, but under the surface, Lima is full of treasures. This loud, messy city hides pre-Columbian temples among soulless high-rises, opulent colonial balconies amid bulky piles of concrete, and sublime art and pottery in edgy spaces. Many travellers scurry through Guadalajara on their way to Andean heights; rent a car in Lima and avoid the same mistake.
